Homemade Tick Spray
This Homemade Tick Spray recipe contains a natural tick repellent that works so well at repelling ticks!
I’ve been using Rose Geranium Essential Oil from the advice of my holistic vet as a natural tick repellent for the last 3 years (update 4/2019 — 6 years!). And it’s kept my family and my dog completely tick free in those years!
Which is kind of a huge deal because we live in the woods of Pennsylvania. Before I discovered Rose Geranium essential oil I was pulling a minimum of 3-4 ticks off my dog each day – Yikes!
So you can imagine my excitement to have found something completely natural that is so simple and works so well for us! I’m a huuuuuuuge fan of it and tell everyone I know about it!
Rose Geranium seems to be tough to find and a lot of people ask me what brand I use and where I get it. I’m not affiliated with any essential oil companies – I personally buy and use essential oils from a few different companies that I know and trust. For the past 3 years, I’ve been really happy with THIS Rose Geranium.
In my original natural tick repellent blog post, I told my story about our tick problem and my discovery of rose geranium essential oil. And many people asked me if they could make a natural tick spray out of Rose Geranium.
Well, yes you can! Let me show you how in my video 🙂

Homemade Tick Spray Recipe
- Mix the vodka or witch hazel with your essential oil in a spray bottle (I use THIS glass spray bottle).
