It’s that time of the year when the mosquitoes and pesky insects are out more than ever. If you live near water or where humidity is common you definitely understand the struggle of avoiding being bit by those mean mosquitoes. So before you head out for the day or to that Family BBQ make sure to spray on our “Bug Off All Natural Insect Repellent”. The great thing about our product is that it’s 100% Natural. When creating this product I wanted to make sure that everything was safe and well blended. Our Insect Repellent is environmentally safe and cruelty free. We use only what nature provides. It’s paraben free, gluten free, and GMO free. Our repellent is also DEET-free and allows you to enjoy the outdoors while avoiding bites from insects. Essential oils is a primary ingredient in our repellent, there are no chemicals or toxins in our repellent which makes this product safe and extremely effective.
Protecting yourself, family, and friends from insect bites is so important. Using products like OFF or Cutter Backwoods dries your skin out and also has harmful ingredients that can cause allergic reactions and in some cases a rash. If you don’t properly remove Repellent like OFF or Cutter Backwoods from your skin or clothes it can cause irritation to skin being that they are highly concentrated products. I personally have a close friend that developed an allergic reaction from being bitten by mosquitoes and she googled natural remedies instead of using OFF spray because the repellent was too strong for her. Come to find out the natural remedy she discovered is an essential oil, as well as a product that’s in our Lizzie’s All-Natural Bug Repellent. Our repellent isn’t a heavy formula. It’s light and easy to apply and also helps relieve and soothe the skin. If you’ve experienced itching from bug bites that you may have gotten before using our repellent, our ingredients will help nourish and moisturize those irritated areas.
During the summer proper skin care is vital. If you are prone to getting bit by certain insects or mosquitoes it’s very important to minimize any floral fragrances and make sure to wear repellent every time you leave your home. The body wash that you use daily is very important during the summer, if you are prone to getting bit as well. I highly recommend using our Organic Body Wash which is available on our site. The organic body wash is one of our top selling products and will leave your skin feeling soft, fresh, and rejuvenated. If you love smelling nice but don’t want an overbearing scent this body wash is perfect for you. Also wearing strong scented perfumes and or cologne everyday during the summer months can attract certain insects. If you’re someone who loves perfumes or colognes but you want to avoid ugly insect bites here’s a list of all natural essential oils that you can apply to your skin that will have you smelling nice and will also protect your skin.
Mosquitoes: Citronella, peppermint, lemon, eucalyptus, basil, clove, thyme, lemongrass, geranium, and lavender;
Fleas: Cedarwood, citronella, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemongrass, lavender, orange, and pine;
Ticks: Rose geranium, juniper, rosewood, thyme, grapefruit, and oregano.
