Natural Tick Repellent For Dogs – Make Your Own!

May 31st, 2023

Do you want to make your own natural tick repellent for your dog, but you don’t know how?

In this blog, I’m sharing my own recipe!

I keep receiving emails and messages about Tick Off and Ear Cleaner. When I closed down the products side of Vita Canis, I thought these two wouldn’t be missed much. And I was wrong!

Therefore I decided to share the recipe with you so that you can make your own natural tick repellent for your dog because the tick season is already here!

This natural tick repellent contains essential oils. These essential oils smell soooo disgusting to ticks (it’s like the smells of the food you don’t like or something even worse… cooked tripe… blah) that they would rather go hungry than come any closer to your dog! These include geranium, grapefruit, cedarwood, rosewood, and lemongrass… all of these are in the Tick Off, of course.

When shopping for ingredients, buy high-quality; that’s very important! I recommend Penny Price Aromatherapy, Naturally Thinking, and Essential Oils Direct.

Make your own natural tick repellent for  your dog.

For 100ml Tick Off, you will need:

Geranium floral water 30ml

Lavender floral water 30ml

Aloe vera leaf juice 20ml

Alcohol 5ml

Purified water 10ml

Vitamin E 1 drop

Geranium essential oil 12 drops

Cedarwood essential oil 10 drops

Rosewood essential oil 6 drops

Lavender flower water 20ml

Which hazel flower water 30ml

Niaouli essential oil 10drops

Lemon essential oil 5 drops

Vitamin E 1 drop

Keep both products in a cool, dry place, preferably a fridge.

What People Say...

My Welsh Terrier, Teddy, has been boarding with Jitka & Rachel at Vita Canis dog boarding kennels in Uttoxeter for many years. And I wouldn’t dream of taking him anywhere else – ever.

We always receive the warmest of welcomes when we arrive, and Teddy quickly forgets we are still there with him. He is so pleased to see the girls with whom he has bonded pawfectly as regular guest!

There are no goodbyes on offer for us when we drop him off for his holiday at Vita Canis! He’s far too excited at the prospect of his stay!!

We can leave Teddy with complete peace of mind and total confidence that he will be in the safest, kindest, most professional, and expert hands possible. It’s a home from home for Teddy in every possible way.

Vita Canis boarding kennel in Uttoxeter provides a truly individually tailored experience for each dog.

On the collection day, each dog will smell and look divine! As all Vita Canis holidaymakers are bathed and brushed before departure! An absolutely superb experience for your dog that I wholeheartedly recommend.
