Yep, we just chose to be straightforward here, and tell you our opinion on ticks. THEY'RE GROSS! Right? And not only are ticks just gross--they're dangerous disease carriers. Please, if you don't use this, find some other method of preventing your little four-legged kid from contracting Lyme disease or any other nastiness that ticks can spread.
This blend can be added to help both you AND your dog not be so afraid of the outside world during the warmer months! A proprietary blend of valuable essential oils like myrrh, lavender, and bay, this blend will send the little bloodsuckers scurrying away. Remember, it doesn't kill them, it simply repulses them enough that they don't want anything to do with you OR your "stinky" dog. :)
Add a small amount (what would equal 2-4 drops or one spray) to your hands and pet your canine on his/her tail base, behind her ears, on her neck, and in the chest area. Use in conjunction with our F*** Fleas blend to repel all those nasty creatures that are looking to take up residence in your dog's fur. If you need both, apply our flea blend in the morning, then apply the tick blend in the afternoon to avoid overapplying. (Why don't we blend the two together? Well, quite frankly, they don't smell very good together.)
Opt for either an easy-to-carry, glass spray bottle (spray on hands and apply); or our convenient, solid color roller-ball package! Also available, either package can be decorated with paws!! A great gift for your favorite canine lovers.
As we've stated before, DO NOT APPLY THIS PRODUCT TO CAT-LIKE CREATURES. Cats can't process essential oils like dogs and humans and can get very ill if overexposed to them. Apply in a room away from your feline friends and store in a safe place.
Remember, a little of these blends goes a long way. Don't be tempted to over apply, and please USE ONLY ON ADULT DOGS.
Store in a dark, cool place and use within 9-12 months for optimal freshness & potency.

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalized orders
Q: Do you do custom blends?
A: ABSOLUTELY! Many essential oils have similar properties, so if you would like to modify an ingredient, simply send us a message with your request. We'll strive to make it a reality.
Q: Why does my product say, "store in a cool, dark, dry place?"
A: Essential oils are biologically active, which means that they're "alive," in a way. We take every precaution to make sure your item is as fresh as possible when shipped, but excessive heat and light degrade the "alive" properties of the oils, making them less therapeutic.
Heat and light will also make your blend go rancid faster, since we don't use any synthetic preservatives. Room temperature or cooler is perfect, and if you're worried that your room temperature could be too warm, refrigeration is fine for most blends.
Q: Do you make large quantities for wholesale prices?
A: We are a small company. That having been said, we certainly welcome inquiries about larger quantities, and may be able to offer a small discount. For example, if you would like to order several packages for guests at a wedding, we would be delighted to accommodate that request. A convo and ample advance notice would definitely be in order to arrange the details.
About essential oils
Q: What are essential oils?
A: Essential oils are potent, concentrated substances that, when inside the source plant, act as some part of the plant's immune system.
For example, lavender oil has a powerful healing ability because that's its job when the plant is injured.
As many as 1,000 plants (or more!) can be used to make a tiny bottle of oil! (That's strong stuff!) That's why we properly dilute the oils in a less-potent base, such as olive or jojoba oil, aloe vera, or beeswax.
What about shipping? Why is it that price?
I ship every item via USPS Flat Rate 2-3 Day Priority Mail so that it arrives fresh and ready to use! I can't be responsible for lost or misdirected mail; please check your shipping address for accuracy.
