Ticks carry disease-causing organisms. These organisms can be passed on to humans during a tick bite. The most common diseases spread by ticks are Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted to humans through the bite of a tick infected with the disease (Ixodes scapularis).
Fever, headache, exhaustion, and a distinctive skin rash, are the most prevalent symptoms. If the infection is not treated, it can spread to other body parts, causing more difficulties like chronic lyme disease.
Several essential oils have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce swelling and inflammation.
They are a natural way to help relieve the pain and discomfort of tick bites and some of them fight against the bacteria of lyme disease.
