I hate ticks! Natural Tick deterrent for human use: 1 part tea tree oil to 2 parts water in a spray bottle and spray it on - particularly shoes, socks, or cuffs of pants- Wonder if this really works? And where do you buy Tea Tree oil?
Make Your Own Natural Tick Deterrent. Then I guess spray lavender or some other pleasant smell elsewhere so you don't smell the strong scent of the tea tree oil. unless you like smelling like a tea tree.
