Our naturally derived tick repellent

Taking the confusion out of tick prevention

Suzanne started Botanic Protect in 2019 to help outdoor-loving families (like her own) reduce their risk of contracting Lyme Disease from tick bites.

“Botanic Protect came about after a family holiday to the New Forest. I knew about the risk of contracting Lyme disease from infected tick bites and that the New Forest was a high risk area. I went online to buy a tick repellent to take with us but it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be!

It took me hours to research the different types of repellents and the ones I could use on toddlers.  I was also really surprised by the general lack of awareness about adults and children needing to use a repellent whilst doing outdoor activities in places like forests and parks.

I wanted to take the confusion out of tick prevention for other families in the same position as me, so I decided to develop my own product and share my research with others who want care-free time outdoors!”

After 18 months of meticulous research, Suzanne launched Botanic Protect tick repellent.

“It’s always been important to me to produce an effective, naturally derived product, which can be used by all the family, including toddlers.”

After all, Lyme Disease can affect anyone, anywhere.

“I focused on a plant-based spray so it can be used every day, while walking the dog, at forest school or picnicking in the park. Botanic Protect is produced from the distilled oil of lemon eucalyptus trees, which is sustainably sourced and fully biodegradable, so it’s prefect for nature lovers!”
