hi,

i did a search and did come up with some names of natural tick repellents, just wondering if i can get any more?

also, i think most of them are made of essential oils which I am pretty sure you cannot use during pregnancy. does anyone know?

thanks, maureen

I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice but only my personal experience and opinion.

thanks, i am going to buy this for clothing. but what about skin for me and my 5 year old? something natural.

thanks, maureen

Consumer Reports tested many tick repellents, and came up with 6 they thought were best. Four had DEET, one had picardine, and one had lemon eucalyptus oil. The brand name is Repel.

I bought some, but haven't used it yet.

Orange Guard, also called TKO Orange as a concentrate - from oranges. Put a little in a spray bottle, fill up with water, spray on clothing, immediate ground area, lightly rub on dog/cat fur. Ok to use as long as not allergic to oranges. Biodegradable - like apply everyday.
