Did you know that many essential oils of therapeutic quality can repel insects just as well as chemical and DEET repellents?
The right blend of oils such as:
…. and many other beneficial essential oils are tremendous in helping to fend off offensive and even dangerous insects.
Essential oils as repellents have gained popularity because of their safety and health benefits. Also, many repel multiple varieties of insects, for example, Citronella and Peppermint are both great for repelling Mosquitoes, Ants and Spiders.
The same such oils will dissipate and/or lose potency over time as they blend with the natural oils in your skin, and they require reapplication about every 2 hours or so, which isn’t a bad thing, since they are also very beneficial to the skin and body overall.
Others, like Lemongrass can last for 4-6 hours. The perfect blend of essential and carrier oil is the key to a great overall insect repellent that is both effective and safe.
We blend our Bug Be Gone with a balanced blend of more than a dozen different repellent, therapeutic grade essential oils with soothing Aloe Vera and other moisturizers that smell great to us, but terrible to those pesky mosquitoes and other insects.
No insect repellent is 100%, and you must always be careful and mindful of insect activity and aggression around you when outdoors.
