But even the best camping trip can be ruined by getting tick bites. The best way to avoid the bloodsuckers is to stay out of brushy areas and to wear full covering clothing (long sleeve shirt tucked into pants tucked into boots). While DEET and permethrin have been shown to reduce the incidence tick bites, rose geranium oil offers an natural method to repel ticks. Mix 2 Tbs almond oil with 10-25 drops of rose geranium essential oil and dab on skin and clothes. (Dab some of the herbal repellant on the back of your dog’s neck to help keep the ticks away).
