Tick Me Off Soap can be used daily, but it is designed for use after outdoors activities including hiking, camping, gardening, etc. Ticks will often hide on the skin beneath clothing and may not bite until later. Ideally, you want to remove the pest before this happens. The FDA recommends showering after exposure to tick environments to remove these disease-ridden pests; this soap is intended to increase the effectiveness of the shower. The base ingredient is organic mugwort extract from plants grown naturally on Turkeywoods Farm. Additional essential oils include lavender, citronella, and geranium. Each of these natural ingredients have been shown to repel mosquitoes and ticks. While the soap can be used before entering the woods, it may not be as effective as a DEET chemical spray. Nor will it last as long. Again, this product is intended to use after woods exposure and will leave you feeling clean and refreshed.
