I have been getting a lot of inquiries about natural remedies for ticks, do essential oils help? Are there any essential oils that help to keep ticks off us and our pets? Back before I was an aromatherapist, I had tried several home-made tick sprays. Unfortunately, none worked, we still had ticks crawling on us after being out in the yard or hiking.
After doing research and consulting with some fellow aromatherapists, we narrowed it down to these essential oils that have been known to help keep ticks at bay. They include:
Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata)
