Now that Summer's in full swing, there’s one product that gets mentioned over and over again and that’s SPF! There is however, another product that may not get mentioned as often, but is just as important for your outdoor protection, can you guess what it is??? The title may have given it away, but if you said BUG REPELLENT than you would be 100% correct!!!
While bug repellent won’t protect you against UV rays, it will help protect you against pesky bugs and mosquitoes that may leave you with a nasty welt and irritation – and which could even potentially carry disease and put your health at risk!!
The problem though, is that many conventional bug repellents are full of chemicals and artificial ingredients. Considering that your skin absorbs 60% of everything that is applied to it, you may feel you’re better off taking your chances outdoors :-(
We don’t recommend this, and that’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ll be adding a USDA Organic and healthy bug repellent to our skinfood line! You can feel good about putting this on your skin - as it’s free from all synthetic ingredients and won’t put your health at risk!
Here’s What’s In It:
Organic Witch Hazel
Witch Hazel is an excellent base for the essential oils in a bug spray and is also excellent for the skin. It’s natural astringent and antiseptic qualities will organically help to relieve itchy skin as well as ensure that your skin stays hydrated!
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Bugs really dislike apple cider vinegar and the addition of this ingredient will ensure they stay far away! Apple cider vinegar also has powerful antibacterial properties and assists to keep your skin healthy and clean.
Organic Lemon Eucalyptus Essential Oil
This oil is wonderful for opening up your sinuses, but in our bug spray it’s to ensure that bugs stay off you. The scent of lemon eucalyptus confuses bugs and masks your body heat and carbon dioxide exhalations, meaning that bugs will be less aware there is a living breathing human for them to feed on!
Organic Lemongrass and Citronella Essential Oils
Lemongrass and citronella (often know for use in bug repelling candles) are especially beneficial for deterring mosquitoes and flies. The plant-based insect repellent has been registered for this use in the US since 1948 and the EPA considers it a fully non-toxic biopesticide.
Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
Tea tree is the perfect natural alternative to toxic bug sprays and will help to prevent as well as treat any accidental bug bites. It’s rich with antiseptic and antibacterial properties - which are very helpful for the skin and irritation – while also keeping those buggies at bay!!
Organic Rosemary Essential Oil
Rosemary is often planted alongside plants in the garden to repel bugs from eating those adjacent plants – so as avid gardeners, you can surely bet we added it to our bug repellent!! The smell is wonderfully pleasant to us, but bugs hate it :-)
There you have it! Be sure to apply our bug repellent when you head into the wonderful outdoors and don’t even think about skipping it in your travel bag! All our tested family and friends adore it … because bugs hate it ... so we believe you and your family will love it too :-)
