I had been searching for this particular oil, Pelargonium capitatum x radens, for awhile when i found this one! I live in the woods, and there are tons of ticks up here. I had read that this particular type of oil is excellent for keeping the ticks off.. and boy does it work!! I absolutely love it (and it smells amazing of course), i had read on a homesteading blog that it does the job for this and couldn't have imagined that it really did.. until i tried it for myself. I just put a fews dabs on my boots and socks and have not had a problem at all. I always keep a good stash of it so that i do not run out! Lovely oil, so glad i have found this wonderful source for it.

This is seemingly the best, purest I've found. I use it on pulse points & along my dog's spine to repel ticks & it works... Smells AMAZING as well. I also use it in my pits as a deodorizer.
Smells great, I use this oil to scent my goat milk + rose soap and it’s turned out great
Beautiful aroma, reminds me of Spring.
Excellent scent, came quickly, light resistant bottle, packaged very good and price is well worth it! Hoping that this does what I have read online which is make it so ticks have no desire to be on pets or myself. I am one that is against the flea and tick medications that many do not have luck with at all. Plans are to put this on my dog in certain spots as the following website inform should happen: https://naturalon.com/how-to-repel-ticks-naturally-and-prevent-lyme-disease/#
I use this oil in a facial oil blend and it adds a wonderful scent and has benifets for your skin. This oil is priced right and passed the blotter paper test. Great customer service, quality essential oil's, I'll be buying from WFMED again.
This variety of rose geranium is supposed to repel ticks--I ordered it for that reason. Hard for me to speak from experience as yet to the efficacy of that--though online, others do seem to swear by it--but I can say that the SCENT of this is infinitely more wonderful than a different brand and type of Rose Geranium a friend had given me. WFMED.COM offers what seem to me excellent quality essential oils at great prices, delivery was swift, and this particular oil, for which I happened to have a direct comparison on hand, is head over heels superior.
I love this scent, because it is light enough to smell the natural soap smell and the rose scent is beautiful with it. It is wonderful!
The Rose Geranium smells great, and I'm hoping it will work against ticks, but it is not thick like a pure essential oil, when I tried to get drops from the bottle it just poured out. I was surprised that they said it should be diluted before use
Great essential oil. Very fast delivery. Thank You!
