Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are diseases caused by bacteria carried by ticks. Lyme disease is caused by bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi (B. burgdorferi) and Rocky Mountain spotted fever is caused by bacteria called Rickettsia rickettsii (R. Rickettsii). Symptoms of these diseases are similar to the flu. Avoid walking in wooded or bushy areas, or areas with high grasses without protection. When walking or hiking in wooded or grassy areas, spray all exposed skin and your clothing with insect repellant. Essential oils from Young Living can help reduce bacteria and support skin health.
