This Bug Spray has become a local celebrity... Mainly because it is 100% natural and it actually works! It is very effective at repelling most flying insects such as mosquitoes, horseflies, black flies, and gnats. I use a witch hazel base simply because it is less drying than alcohol (which can dry the skin out, creating a reservoir for bacteria). Witch hazel can actually be applied directly to the skin for itching, swelling and pain related to bug bites. This base teamed up with a safe and potent blend of citronella, lemongrass, and eucalyptus essential oils makes for one awesome all-natural bug spray! It can be applied to clothing or right on your bare skin. It's safe enough to use on kids of all ages as well as any pet that you can think of... Hey! they suffer from the bugs as much as we do! Simply spritz a little in your hands and apply around the muzzle and behind the ears for your furry friend's face, and a few sprays under the belly helps too! Whatever the use, you can feel confident in using this product because it is natural, safe and EFFECTIVE!
