Oil of lemon Eucalyptus2009-05-13 07:38:03gfaherty


DEET is not the only repellent that protects against deer ticks. Oil of Lemon Eucalyptus (found in Repel Lemon Eucalyptus and Cutter Lemon Eucalyptus) also works really well. The EPA have approved it for this use (see http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/health/mosquitoes/ai_insectrp.htm). It's the only plant-based active with this approval and it smells much better than DEET, plus doesn't melt plastics (always a plus for something you plan to put on your skin!!)
