    Does the tea tree oil work on pets as well. Is it safe for dogs and cats. Spraying them before outings sounds like a good idea if safe

    Can you add other essential oils like lavender and eucalyptus to repel mosquitos too?

    bad idea, regarding using soap or doing anything else - you want the tick out ASAP - follow the CDC's recommendations: Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp tick as close to the skin's surface as possible. Pull upward w/steady even pressure. Don't twist or jerk; this can cause the mouth-parts to break off/remain imbedded. If this happens, remove mouth-parts w/tweezers. After removing tick, clean the bite area & your hands with rubbing alcohol, an iodine scrub, or soap & water.

    I believe I read an article that says that you can use Essence of Rosemary Oil on animals... and on people!

    I think essence of rosemary is what's recommended for dogs and cats to repel ticks.

    This soap method works like a charm! Also, the tea tree water works just as fantastic!

    The problem with the CDC's tick removal method is that most people yank the tick off without getting the head or all its parts...then you have a bigger issue because getting the head out easily is not always possible.

    Using the soap method is just as quick as going slow enough with a pair of tweezers and with the soap method, there is zero risk of any tick parts being left under the skin.

    This same method works with vaseline because both the soap and vaseline keep suffocate the tick; that is why it has to pull its head out. However, most people don't have vaseline just laying around, but many households, cabins and trailers have liquid hand soap quickly available.

    Great post!
