What is Tick Magic?

Our repellent will help to protect you from tick bites without the use of DEET or any other chemicals. Available as either a lotion or a spray.

Tick Magic™’s main active ingredient is Citrepel, a version of PMD derived from lemon eucalyptus. (PMD is the single most effective natural repellent). We also include small amounts of traditional repellents Bog Myrtle Oil, and Lemongrass Oil. We mix these three active ingredients with natural skin lotion and grape seed oil, which are both good for your skin. Tick Magic™ will let you enjoy the outdoors without worrisome tick bites, and keep your skin feeling soft.

Active Ingredient:

Naturally-sourced Eucalyptus Citriodora Rich Botanic Oil, a powerful insect repellent containing high levels of PMD, the single most effective repellent found in nature.

Additional Ingredients:

Natural skin lotion, grapeseed oil, bog myrtle essential oil, lemongrass essential oil. The following occur naturally in the essential oils in this product – listed here in case of allergies: myrcene, citronellal, geranyl acetate, nerol, limonene, citral.

Tick Removers

Now, we know. Sometimes you forget to put on your repellent, or maybe you found out that the most common way for a human to get a tick is from a pet or other animal. Just for those occasions when you need it, why not keep a Tick Remover in your outdoor bag? Available as either a packet of tick hooks or as the Safetycard version

About Ticks

Here are two informative links for more in depth information about Ticks, bite prevention, and Lyme disease:

Ticks and lyme disease Tick Awareness Toolkit

Ticks are small Arachnids which can vary considerably in size depending on the stage in their life cycle – see image.

Ticks feed on the blood of birds and mammals – including us humans.

Ticks live in woodland, moorland, parks and anywhere there is wildlife. They don’t fly or jump, but climb on to animals or humans as they brush past.

Tick bites are not painful, but if not removed they will feed on the blood of their host for days until they drop off to lay the eggs of the next generation of ticks.

Ticks may be infected with a number of diseases, but the most concerning for us humans is Lyme disease which can be serious if untreated.

Prevention is better than cure, so to avoid tick bites cover up as much skin as possible, and use a repellent like Tick Magic.  Tick Magic works because when a tick gets onto your skin or that of your pet, it does not simply bite you where it lands. A tick will move to a position on the body where it can bite and extract blood over an extended period with low risk of discovery. It is thought that when it reaches an area where repellent has been applied it abandons its quest and drops off without biting.

After moving through outdoor areas that might shelter Ticks, check carefully all over your body for ticks attached to your skin.

If you do find any ticks attached to you, remove carefully preferably with a special tick remover like those available from Tick Magic , then apply some antiseptic to the bite.

Keep an eye on the bite site. If a large red rash develops, or if you feel unwell, tell your doctor you've been bitten by a tick.  A small, itchy spot is a normal reaction to a tick bite.
