Welcome to our – first ever – Newsletter! 

Thank you for subscribing, we really do appreciate your interest in Botanic Protect and we’ll make sure you’re kept up to date with all the latest news about our launch…!

Top 3 updates

Ticks Beware!

National walking associations, Nordic Walking UK and WALX have announced they will be trialling our plant based tick repellent at their Dorset HQ over the coming months. Dorset is one of the highest tick risk areas in the country and so the folks at Nordic Walking and WALX really know their stuff…

We also have a number of other well known organisations trialling Botanic Protect around the country!

Watch them run…

COVID comparisons

The last 6 months have been challenging to say the least but perhaps one positive to come out of the lockdown is the increased awareness about Lyme disease. Comparisons are being drawn between the symptoms of ‘long COVID’ and Lyme disease. 

Campaigners for the disease are hopeful that research into ‘long COVID’ symptoms will bring about better understanding and improved treatment for Lyme disease sufferers.

And finally…

Did you know that ticks can attach to pets and end up in the family home? It’s really important to keep up to date with your pet’s tick treatment (usually combined with flea treatments). 

We like FIPROtec (which was recommended by our lovely local independent pet shop) or for an easier option, just add Frontline to your online shop!  These are spot-on treatments and need to be topped-up approximately every 4 weeks*
