Based on a formula created in the Amazon rainforest, where fleas, ticks and mosquitoes are a way of life, Flea & Tick Defense uses a special blend of “pet-friendly,” yet “pest-unfriendly” natural Brazilian oils. This unique formula:

  • Contains a rich blend of oils, including Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Sesame and Castor Oils, expertly blended and balanced with purified water.
  • Is designed for short-term use, and for best results, reapply every two to three days, and after swimming, bathing or exposure to heavy rain.
  • Is ideal for protection during an occasional walk in the woods, day hike or weekend camping trip.

The indigenous Brazilian people living in the rainforest have always dealt with pests in their environment. The lush forests and tropical climate are perfect breeding grounds for fleas, ticks and mosquitos, and the window-less dwellings do little to keep pests out.

For centuries, the people have used a uniquely effective method to protect themselves from these pests – a combination of oils from their native surroundings.

Dr Mercola uses the same pest-repellent oils to formulate Flea & Tick Defense – a special blend of “pet-friendly” natural Brazilian oils, based on centuries of successful use in one of the most hostile, pest-ridden environments imaginable.

Designed for short-term use, Flea & Tick Defense must be reapplied after swimming, bathing or exposure to heavy rain.

How can natural oils work so effectively to repel fleas, ticks, mosquitos and more?

Lemongrass oil – Pleasant smelling to humans and pets, the scent of lemongrass is repugnant to fleas. Two major ingredients in lemongrass, citral and geraniol, act as natural repellents against fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. When used in a spray for pets, this oil promotes a shiny, healthy coat.

Cinnamon oil – A versatile essential oil widely used in the household and for outdoors, it contains a natural chemical called eugenol that is fast-acting against ticks and effectively repels mosquitoes, fleas and other pests.

Sesame oil – A rich, almost odorless oil derived from sesame seeds, sesame oil contains what’s known as alarm pheromones which signal “danger” to insects and helps keep them away. The oil also promotes the health of your pet's skin and coat.

Castor oil – Castor oil contains esters that interfere with the pests’ ability to locate their hosts. When combined with other oils, it helps repel a variety of pests and provides soothing relief if a bug does bite.

Purified water – Dr Mercolas uses the purest water possible to blend and properly balance our unique formula of essential oils.

While the individual ingredients each play important roles in repelling pests, the real secret behind Flea & Tick Defense’s effectiveness is the expert blending and balancing of the Brazilian oils with the purified water.

Balance is key to a safe, effective pest repellent product. If too much of any one ingredient is not blended properly in a formula, it can lead to skin irritation.
