It’s almost June – you know what that means – Memorial Day parties, graduation parties, backyard barbecues, and all sorts of outdoor living!
It also coincides with “bug season.” Deer flies, greenheads, mosquitoes, ticks, and other pests just can’t get enough of our summer revelry. They love it as much as we do, but we’re the ones on the menu!
Unfortunately, many commercially available pest repellents are laden with synthetic compounds, harsh irritants, and chemicals like DEET, or N-Diethyl-3-methylbenzamide, which is not only potentially harmful to humans but is mildly toxic to birds and aquatic invertebrates.
The good news is here: stock up on natural organic bug spray now, before summer gets into full swing, and reap the following benefits.
1.All-natural, organic ingredients are highly-effective!
The first reason to use our natural organic bug spray is also the most compelling – the stuff really works!
Our natural organic bug spray is carefully formulated with a unique balance of rosemary, cedarwood, peppermint, lemongrass, and citronella oils – all of which are known for their powerful, insect-repellent properties.
Many of these scents, which are quite pleasant to our senses, are commensurately odious to many pests. It makes sense, too. These essential oils evolved naturally in these plants’ tissues specifically to keep them from becoming parasitized or preyed upon by insects.
Natural oils like peppermint oil are highly effective at repelling not only mosquitoes and biting flies, but also gnats, ants, fleas, lice, and even mice! Moreover, some oils, such as cedrol (cedarwood oil) are not only effective at repelling pests but at killing them – cedrol is actually toxic to many pests such as ticks and some moths but safe for humans.
One more thing: it’s long-lasting. Since our Insect Shield natural organic bug spray is oil-based, it is water and sweat-resistant and longer-lasting than water-based repellents, lasting up to 4 hours!
2.Potentially less irritating for those with sensitive skin.
Some chemical additives, such as DEET, can cause a rash in sensitive individuals. Other blends contain picaridin (sometimes referred to as icaridin) which, while generally considered gentler than DEET, is still irritating to some.
Since our natural, organic bug spray lacks these compounds, it’s less likely to cause skin irritation, even to those with sensitive skin.
3.Smells great – and the scents are all-natural.
Many commercially available bug sprays rely on synthetic, petroleum-derived compounds to achieve their scents.
You probably don’t need us to tell you, but the oils included in our bug spray simply smell divine, especially in the light and delicate balance we have achieved!
Our blend contains a unique mixture of cedarwood, rosemary, citronella, lemongrass, peppermint, cinnamon, and even geranium oil, that offers a unique combination of spicy, zesty, woodsy, and lightly floral notes.
In a word, it smells wonderful, and we’ve accomplished it all without the need for fake ingredients.
4.Natural organic bug spray is more environmentally friendly.
Commonly included active ingredients in commercially available pest repellents include but are not limited to DEET, permethrin, and cyfluthrin.
These compounds are not only potentially harmful to humans, they are harmful to the environment as well.
We’ve already mentioned the potential drawbacks of DEET. Permethrin is even worse, and devastating when it finds itself in the runoff, as it is highly toxic to all sorts of aquatic life, fish and invertebrates included. As for cyfluthrin, it is less noxious than permethrin, since it degrades quickly, but it is still highly toxic to aquatic organisms and considered a “low-level” toxin to birds and mammals.
Rest easy, our natural bug repellent blend, while effective, contains none of these.
5.Buy smart, and keep compliant with TSA regulations!
Summer is also time for traveling, and no doubt some of you have some big plans after what the past two years have put us all through.
Unfortunately, TSA regulations prohibit carry-on luggage from containing liquids in containers that are larger than 3.4 ounces per item.
Our natural bug spray is travel-friendly: at just 3 ounces, it’s sized perfectly for compliance with those TSA regulations.
6.Our blend is great for your skin’s health, too!
We took our organic bug spray formula to the next level with this unique blending because we weren’t just concerned with repelling insects and preventing bug bites, but also with your skin’s overall wellness.
In addition to the naturally repellent plant-based additives in this blend, we’ve also included a generous amount of sunflower oil and vitamin E.
Sunflower is full of antioxidants and rich in linoleic acid which is a powerful humectant and emollient that can keep your skin hydrated and feeling smooth while improving skin barrier function.
As for vitamin E, it is one of skin care’s most potent, powerhouse ingredients. Like sunflower oil, vitamin E hydrates and protects the skin, improves skin barrier function, and staving off free radicals, helping to keep your skin looking and feeling both young and fresh.
