The Spring flowers are pretty, but ticks are ‘on the grass, alas!’ I live in very high Lyme and other tick- borne disease region, and though Lyme got ahold of me elsewhere 25 years ago, moving to Virginia gave me another dose or two. While I never took antibiotics and just worked holistically to strengthen myself and remediate the debilitating symptoms, gardening and being outside ...my great joy... began to be a frightening experience. Until I developed this insect repellent which is highly effective against ticks. If you use it assiduously, that is. My partner and I work primarily outdoors, in waist and shoulder high plants, in the woods, on the ground, with confidence. My customers love this product too, as protection from mosquitos, gnats, walnut husk flies and other biting winged creatures . There are none of the typical ingredients found in other natural sprays, no geranium, cedar, lemongrass or eucalyptus, as I found them ineffectual for most mosquitoes, also ticks, which are technically not insects, but arachnids. As this product is based on a synergy of plants, including an in house distillation, only a finite amount is available each season. However, in addition to this organic alcohol and hydrosol based spray, soon there will be an oil based spray available. I like to apply the oil based one on the skin, in areas where perspiration happens most, then spray hard to reach areas with the aqueous based product for all day protection. If you don’t do any hard work outdoors, using just one or the other form is this repellant usually suffices.
