Natural Tick Repellent

Remember, what we put on our skin ends up INSIDE our body!  Our skin is the largest organ we are walking around with – let’s feed it quality substances.  When it comes to living a healthy and organic lifestyle, what we lather on our bod is just as significant as what we put in our mouths.  Here is a wonderful DIY essential oil blend that will work like a charm to keep those ticks off of you, your family and your pets!
