Natural Tick Prevention

I'm curious- for those of you that do not use traditional methods of tick prevention, what do you use? I currently use a Seresto collar and love it for the fact that I haven't pulled a tick off of her since I started using it. Provided there are natural preventatives that work just as well, I'm interested in hearing about them. We are in the woods a lot and we have a billion ticks around here so using nothing really isn't an option.

We also have a big problem with ticks because there are always sheep grazing outside our house. I use Rakia, Bulgarian brandy. My neighbors give it to us every year and I couldn't drink it if my life depended on it, but the ticks certainly don't like it, the smell would put anyone off.

Apologies to any Bulgarians reading this, but I also use it to clean the toilet, works a treat.

Do you apply it topically? I don't think it's reasonable for me but I'm curious.

Yes. The smell is awful for a day or two but it seems to work for 5-6 weeks.
