A natural and effective way to keep ticks away from people and pets is the essential oil of eucalyptus.
South Salem, NY (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Lyme Disease, for many across the country, is a modern day scourge. People are afraid to walk on the grass, to allow children to play in the woods. People move out of the city to enjoy a less stressful life but fear living in the countryside once moved in.
There is certainly reason for concern. Winters (especially on the east coast) have not been cold enough to kill off the ticks that carry Lyme Disease and their co-infections. The deer population is growing and more invasive due to displacement from the land due to building development.
A natural and effective way to keep ticks away from people and pets is the essential oil of eucalyptus. At the website of master herbalist Andrea Candee an easy preparation is described to repel them. At http://www.AndreaCandee.com click on Articles and Lyme Disease part I.

She is an Instructor for The New York Botanical Garden. Her blog, Did You Know?, can be accessed via Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Ms Candee’s next workshop is with the NY Botanical Garden at The New Canaan Nature Center, June 22, 10am-12 noon. The topic will be “The Healing Harvest.” Go to nybg.org to register.
