Spring is officially here and I opened the 2020 hiking season in the Hudson Valley with my favorite hike of all times – the Mount Beacon in Beacon, NY. Even though the leaves are not out yet, the weather was nice and sunny, almost 60 degrees outside, so it definitely felt like Spring.

I know that ticks are out and about, hunting for unsuspecting hikers when the temperature is above 45 degrees, so I knew for sure that when it’s 60 degrees out, it’s time to carry the best natural tick repellent you can find.

It was a bit unexpected to see mosquitos on top of the mountain, but I definitely caught them on camera while filming a promo for the bug repellent. Though mosquitos aren’t a big concern right now, while tick bites are much more dangerous and could transmit Lyme disease which is no fun.

Hiking tips from DA Aromatherapy Collection:
If hiking or camping in an area known as a tick & mosquito habitat, try to protect yourself, and children in particular, by wearing bright colored, long-sleeved tops and pants, tucking the bottoms of the pant legs into long socks. Apply a generous amount of DA Aromatherapy Collection Natural Insect Repellent Spray, as a deterrent, onto clothing and skin. For best results apply frequently. Inspect the entire body after hiking.
