Tick removal and treatment with essential oils
« on: June 01, 2017, 06:46:54 AM »

Heard this on Gary Null show. This seems amazing, I just ordered oregano oil and palo santo oil. Internal use of oregano oil however is pretty radical but can be done. I have heard but it may kill all your gut bacteria. The external use application seems the most relevant

"During tick season the use of oil of wild oregano, ideally as a daily
supplement, is a must, rather, life-protecting and life-saving. No one
should go into the wilderness or woods without it. Moreover, it is not
just obviously wild areas, but in many instances it is an essential
for mere back-yard and park protection."

To remove a tick, place a drop of oil directly on the tick and wait
for the tick to let go. Do not pull the tick off as you do not want it
to penetrate any further into the skin. And we want to prevent the
tick from transmitting disease, especially if it is a Lyme Tick bite.
Palo Santo is the best oil to use for this application. However,
peppermint, cinnamon bark ( Cinnamomum verum ), thyme or oregano (
Origanum compactum ) also will work.

I know nothing of using these oils for treatment.

But, I'm not a fan of covering it with something that can possibly kill it while it is still attached.  Once it lets go, then I'll kill it.  I'm concerned the oil could cause it to regurgitate what it has already sucked down.

I really like the Ticked Off spoons.  Looks like this.

"In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security.
They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all - security,
comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again."

 I ordered palo santo oil, rose geranium oil, and oregano oil. I opened the bottle of oregano oil and took just a very slight wiff. My nose was burning for nearly a half an hour. Very strong stuff

Some websites say dilute it with water and spray it on a dogs body to help keep ticks away. The other oils are not as strong and a drop or so can go on the dogs collar

That sounds strong! Is it safe to put on the dog?

Buhners new book on lyme disease has a formula for a natural tick repellent. Is that the type of thing you guys re looking for with this ? If so, I can take the time to type it out
