As someone who loves the outdoors, I am constantly on the look out for products that make my experience outside a more enjoyable one. That includes avoiding the torment of bug bites. But, since cutting down on chemicals, it’s been hard to find a natural bug spray I can rely on. Until, I found Tick Tock Naturals, which helps prevent against diseases carried by both ticks and mosquitoes.
While I am concerned about mosquitoes bites, a major worry for me is Lyme disease, especially because I live in one of the fourteen states where the disease is present. Primarily found in the Northeast and Midwest, Lyme disease has always been a scary reality of spending time outdoors. According to the CDC, around 300,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year.
A few years ago, the founder of Tick Tock Naturals was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Luckily, she caught it early enough, but she decided to come up with a way to prevent other people from going through what she did.
As its name implies, Tick Tock Naturals is made of all natural, organic ingredients. The main ingredient is grape seed oil, which isn’t greasy and spreads easily onto skin. It also won’t evaporate over time, like water, alcohol, or witch hazel. The only other two ingredients are lemongrass oil and eugenol (an oil coming from clove). Most other organic or natural bug sprays are a mix of essential oils, which can be overwhelming. Tick Tock Naturals smells only like lemongrass, which is a a refreshing change. They have two sizes, including a travel size which has come along with me on a few adventures. Plus, they have an organic soy candle for protection against bugs.
I realize that right now it’s the dead of winter, but unfortunately, ticks are active unless the ground is frozen. So if you plan on spending any time outdoors, even in your own backyard, it doesn’t hurt to have some protection. Plus, spring and summer are right around the corner, and you’re better off being safe rather than sorry. I know Lyme disease is one illness I don’t want to take a risk on.

Tick Tock Naturals insect repellent is a great alternative to DEET, which has many risk factors especially in large doses. It’s also cruelty free, which is important to me as a consumer, and a portion of sales go to Lyme Research Alliance to fund research. So far, I’ve loved it, and I plan on continuing to use it on all of my adventures in 2017.
