Spent a weekend at my sisters house in the country and I came home with a souvenir.. I have tried to remove ticks off of a cat with Peppermint, and a tick from a belly button of my nephew with Purification, but nothing really helped quickly.. so I was thinking, whats the hottest oil I have..hmm! Oregano, I put it on (the tick was right beside my armpit, anyways I put 2 drops and in 20 seconds I felt this burning sensation at the tick bite, I looked down and the ticks little legs were moving around and he was sticking straight out from my body.. I told my husband to grab the tweezers and with a tiny pull he came clean off.. no head left in my body..and now it says to apply Lavender every 5 minutes for 30 minutes... (remember to always save the tick incase a rash occurs or fever even up to a month or two later)

I love my oils!
