I designed this tick spray after my children kept coming home with ticks! It was so gross! We live in the Maine woods, so it is to be expected, but still... ticks. I made this up and as long as I remember to spray them down before they leave, they come home tick-free. :) 


This is my top summer-market seller! I have had such great reviews from my customers, both for the human version and the dog version.


Rosemary and peppermint can cause sensitivities in some children so use sparingly on children under 6. I have listed a BABY-SAFE option for children 3 months+ and also a DOG-SPECIFIC version, that is formulated for dog breeds with their particularly keen sense of smell.


Test the spray on a small area of skin for 24 hours to see if it causes any kind of irritation because of skin allergies or sensitivities to the oils.


** 32oz bottle comes with a pump, so you can refill bottles easily **

    I live in Maine. We have an abundance of ticks and mosquitos this year and usually when we go to the cabin, we ALL end up with bites galore and several ticks. I hate ticks. However, this year we had NO TICKS! None of us had any ticks embedded. I did still find a few walking around on our clothing, but none that actually bit us. That is amazing, considering how deep in the woods we are! Also, it worked well on keeping the mosquitos at bay. We'd apply it several times during the day and evenings, but it smells great and doesn't have any of that chemical smell that other bug repellents have. 
    Very much recommend this product. I want to buy the dog spray for a friend who's dog is forever brining ticks back into their home!
