We love essential oils but there are some do's and don'ts! A video is currently buzzing around the web showing a person who puts a drop of peppermint essential oil on a tick and we see the tick back its way out. Looks cool right? ⛔ DON'T DO IT! ⛔ This will increase your risk of Lyme's disease.
Why? The tick may back out but it can also regurgitate saliva that contains all kinds of diseases including Lyme's.
If a tick is embedded in your skin, don't try to burn, smother, crush, or drown it. This will increase the risk.
The best way to remove a tick is with tick tweezers (or regular tweezers) and nothing else! Take a look at this link for more info: ⬇️
