1- How cedar oil works
Cedar oil is considered an effective tick repeller because it sucks moisture out of the tick’s body, dehydrates the bug, messes up its pH levels, irritates its respiratory system, breaks down the fat in its body, blocks its scent receptors, and disintegrates the bug when it’s still developing. All of this causes ticks to malfunction and kill them while repelling the remaining survivors.
2- How to repel ticks using cedar oil
Find yourself an 8-ounce bottle and fill it halfway with boiled water and fill the rest with witch hazel, then add between 30 and 50 drops of cedar oil (you can add in any essential oil that you like to add up your favorite smell).
You can use another mix if you find the previous uninteresting. Mix 3 ounces of witch hazel with a tablespoon of cedar oil and 3 ounces of distilled water and pour the solution in a spray bottle. Once done, add in 10 drops of citronella oil, 10 drops of rose geranium oil and 5 drops of cedar oil. Close the spray bottle and shake to mix everything together and spray your clothes and skin every 20 to 30 minutes preferably outside the house.
