How to Remove Ticks by Using an Ordinary Salt (Plus Homemade Recipe Against Ticks – Always Works!)

We are all aware of the fact that ticks are very dangerous insects that can cause serious health issues. People have tried different methods in order to get rid of them, but haven’t found really effective way to do it.

Some people actually try to lubricate the areas of the body that are affected with sunflower oil, others try to rub soap, and some pull out with tweezers. The worst case scenario is that some people actually put acetone if they get bitten, which is completely wrong.

In fact there is one really effective and efficient way on how to remove ticks. The place where the tick bites you and gets stuck should be sprinkled with salt and cover it with wet cotton wool. Leave it for 20-30 minutes and the tick will fall on its own.

After this you should put the tick into a box and take it to a lab in order to ensure it is not a holder of poliomyelitis or encephalitis.

Here is the recipe on how to prepare this remedy against ticks:

Make sure that you prepare this spray before going in nature. This remedy actually is very effective against ticks and mosquitos.


  1. Boiling water – 1 cup
  2. Cloves – 2 tablespoons
  3. Alcohol – 2 tablespoons

You will need to mix the cloves in the boiling water and cook for 15 minutes. Let it cool down and add the alcohol in it. Before you decide to go out in nature apply this mixture on yourself and your pet in order to prevent bites from ticks.

In case you are not able to prepare this solution you could also use clove oil. Make sure that you dilute it with water (few drops in a litter of water). Cloves are very effective against ticks because they don’t like the smell of this ingredient.

If you are afraid to remove the ticks on your own, you should immediately seek medical help.
