To our complete delight, we’ve sourced and discovered a safe, natural pest deterrent that fits the bill—it’s called Flea & Tick Defense.
Here are the natural Brazilian oils and ingredients found in Flea & Tick Defense:
There’s one very important point we’d like to point out about these ingredients… it’s not the individual elements that make Flea & Tick Defense so effective, it’s the expert blending and balancing of the Brazilian oils with the pure water. This is what distinguishes a natural effective product from just a natural ingredient.
Results from a 2006 study did show how the Flea & Tick Defense formulation was well tolerated by cats. This is a very important distinction for this product. Dr. Karen Becker, the pet expert behind Mercola’s pet products has seen her share of kitties in her practice that were injured through the improper use of an essential oil their owner thought couldn’t possibly harm them.
The Flea & Tick Defense formula of natural oils from the Amazon rainforest more than satisfies Dr. Karen Becker’s selection criteria for a safe and natural pest deterrent for your pet.
Flea & Tick Defense, has a bit of an exotic story behind it — it’s based on a formula created in the Amazon rainforest.
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 mosquitoes.

Yes, all three repellent products were designed to be used either individually or together, depending on where you live and your pet’s exposure to pests. It is recommended to use all three together if you live in an area heavily populated with fleas and ticks.
Absolutely. The Herbal Repellent Collar, Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent, and Flea & Tick Defense can all be used in between, as well as during the use of other flea and tick products without a problem.
Outdated, conventional veterinary medicine has suggested that all essential oils (including wintergreen), could pose a risk to an animal’s health. However, essential oils are and have been used for holistic pet remedies safely and effectively for many years. When used correctly, the well-researched oils included in our formulas should not pose any negative health effects, unless your pet is allergic to essential oils.
The Spot On product is applied to your pet’s skin and is absorbed throughout the dermis, or outer layer of skin. For maximum absorption, it is recommended to follow the listed provided label instructions and avoid allowing your pet to swim and/or bathing your pet for at least 24 hours after application.
Both the Herbal Repellent Collar and the Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent are effective pest repellent options for pets that are constantly exposed to water, such as by swimming, bathing, or going out in the rain. If you wish, the Herbal Repellent Collar may be removed prior to swimming or bathing, but it is not necessary. If you do remove the collar, promptly put it back on after the water activity for pest protection.
To determine if your pet may be sensitive to the essential oils in Flea and Tick Defense or Spot On Topical Herbal Repellent, apply a small amount of product between the shoulder blades and wait 24 hours to evaluate if a red rash appears. If there is no reaction, apply the remaining amount of product as directed. If itching, flaking, scratching or redness appears, wash the area with soap and water and discontinue use.
For the Herbal Repellent Collar, put the collar on your pet and observe her for 2-12 hours. If there is no reaction then you can leave the collar on your pet. In the rare occasion that itching, flaking, scratching or redness appears, wash the area with soap and water and discontinue use.
