We often get asked about how to prevent tick bites – which of course is the first step in preventing Lyme disease and reinfection with Lyme and other tick-borne infections. While the thought of dousing oneself with DEET and other toxic chemicals is none too appealing, neither is being susceptible to tick bites and the fall-out that can come from that.
There now is another option – an all-natural product called Lyme Guard by Ticks N All. This is a natural alternative to insect repellants laden with toxic chemicals like DEET. Ticks N All’s Lyme Guard is targeted specifically to protect you from Lyme-carrying ticks with natural ingredients: citronella, cedar, geranium, peppermint, lemongrass and tea tree oils along with Aloe Vera, coco butter and coconut oil. This is a great item to have for travel, camping, hiking, etc. We now carry Lyme Guard in our naturopathic online store and our office dispensary, so pick up a bottle with your next order. At only $15 for a 4 ounce bottle, it’s a great deal!!
