Ticks HATE Tea Tree Oil!
Simple and Painless way to Remove Ticks
- Place a few drops of tea tree oil on cotton ball
- Hold cotton ball over tick for at least 60 seconds. This helps the tick to let go easier.
- Remove tick as close to the head as possible with tweezers
- After tick is removed, place another drop of tea tree oil on bite to prevent infection
Another thing you can do is to tape the cotton ball containing tea tree oil over the tick and leave it for 30 minutes.
The oil shuts off the ticks breathing pores and makes it let go. This is an even safer way to ensure that the entire tick is removed.
