Tick me Off! Tick Repellent Soap has a trademark pending with the USPTO. Formulated by a Ph.D. pharmaceutical chemist with 30 years of experience in the fields of organic and medicinal chemistry.

Now made with green swirl (previously red) to reflect Turkeywoods Farm's appreciation for our environment and the great outdoors.

Background: Ticks are known vectors of human and pet diseases including Lyme disease (1). Untreated Lyme disease leads to persistent chronic illness. Recent research has proven that essential plant oils are effective tick repellents. These natural products are plant defense biochemicals believed to act through blockage of the invertebrate octopaminergic receptor, which is critical for normal invertebrate cellular functions including the beating of the insect heart (2). Turkeywoods Farm Tick me Off! Tick Repellent Soap (TM) was designed by a Ph.D. pharmaceutical chemist based on these principles. Safe for children and pets, Tick me Off! Tick Repellent Soap comprises a pleasantly aromatic blend of farm-grown mugwort with additional citronella, thyme, and lavender essential oils. While approved for safe human use, the all-natural combination provides a potent punch against nefarious crawling parasites (3).

Usage Instructions: Ticks will often hide on the skin beneath clothing or within the hair, saving their dangerous bite for later (often while one is sleeping). For this reason, the USFDA recommends showering shortly after exposure to tick infested environments to remove these disease-ridden pests before they make their blood-sucking attachment. Tick me Off! Tick Repellent Soap is designed to increase the effectiveness of the shower. The base ingredient of Tick me Off! soap is organic mugwort extract harvested from wild plants occurring organically on Turkeywoods Farm. Additional ingredients include thyme, lavender, citronella, and geranium essential oils. Each of these natural ingredients have been shown to repel ticks and insects while being approved for safe human use. Tick Me Off! tick repellent soap is perfectly suitable for daily cleansing, and many use it this purpose because of the pleasing, uplifting scent.
