Rose Geranium is a well known essential oil that is thought to help deter ticks from latching on and biting both humans and animals i.e. dogs.
It is a natural alternative that works in a similar way to DEET.
Sweet Almond oil is also thought to be a natural tick deterrent as it naturally contains sulphur which is why we have used it as the base oil. Our Sweet Almond oil does not have an odour and is cosmetic grade.
Rose Geranium has a sweet floral, rosy aroma. It smells a bit like Turkish delight.
