There is no need to reach for a chemical bug spray with this portable formula full of herbs and plant essential oils proven to make you unappealing to mosquitos, blackflies, horseflies, and other biting insects.
Whats In It?
We use a neutral sunflower oil high in essential omega-6 fatty acids to infuse the leaves and stems of catnip plants. Catnip oil is 10 times more effective than diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET), the active ingredient in nearly all topical bug repellents on the market.
Then the infusion is then mixed with an essential oil blend with ingredients chosen based on their confirmed efficacy in discouraging different species of mosquitos and other insects. Chief among these oils is citronella, the organic compound traditionally used before the creation of DEET.
How to Use
Apply a small amount of Bug Balm to exposed skin, avoiding contact with mouth and eyes. Reapply if washed off or after 90 minutes.
