Essential Oil Bug Spray
Our essential oil bug spray is a refreshing alternative to the commercial DEET based sprays. We have found through our personal testing as well as testimonial of others that our spray definitely WORKS! The base scent is of Citronella/Lemongrass and to that we add some essential oils that are also known for their bug repellant properties but that might smell a little more attractive. We don't expect you will confuse this with your perfume/cologne but it smells way better than the alternatives. This spray is DEET free, Paraben free, and not the slightest bit greasy.
We have found this to work as well as commercial bug spray, but it may not last as long. If you are outdoors for an extended period of time, we recommend bringing the bottle with you to reapply as needed. You may want to plan on reapplying every 3-4 hours or more if you are sweating a lot.
This is good for repelling mosquitoes and other similar biting insects. It will work on your person, around the house and on your dogs.
This product should be safe to use on Dogs, it does not contain Tea Tree essential oil. Cats are very sensitive to essential oils and we do not recommend using essential oils on cats. We recommend asking your veterinarian if you have additional questions.
In addition to the water, rubbing alcohol, and essential oils we add an emulsifier and a mild preservative. The emulsifier is helpful to disperse the essential oils evenly throughout the whole bottle to make sure you get a little bit with each spray. Each spray comes out as a fine mist.
Ingredients: Water, Isopropyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 20, Essential Oil Blend, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, and Dehydroacetic Acid.
