We call this Bugs + because we carefully selected products for Bugs + from Mother Nature that are not only extremely UNattractive to bugs, but they also promote skin and hair health (amongst other things).   The plants  best known to repel bugs for themselves are the best plants to use the essential oils from, naturally!  Don’t use too much though – even though this is a natural and gentle spray we don’t want to overwhelm the delicate noses of those we are using it for.   Even when you can barely smell it, it is there doing its job.  Spraying one or two times a week will be enough for most.  If there is a lot of swimming involved, maybe using a little more frequently would be best.

Here’s a peek:

Cedarwood Essential Oil

• anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties

• may have a soothing effect on mood, making it beneficial for anxiety, and reducing stress

• helps repel fleas,mosquitos, and moths from fabric, people, and pets: in fact, cedar trees have been used for mosquito control for thousands of years

• ticks aren't insects but are tiny insects that are members of the arachnid (spider) family - they too are repelled by cedarwood oil, according to recently published findings by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists at the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research - the black-legged tick was the most susceptible of the four tick species exposed to cedarwood oil in the experiments. The others, in order of decreasing susceptibility were: brown dog tick (Rhipicephalus sanguineus), American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis) and lone star tick (A. americanum)
