Suzanne lives at Funky Chicken Farm and developed this for her use in a sub-tropical environment loaded with summertime biting bugs. She has actually seen mosquitoes fly close to the skin and turn around and go the other way! It won't kill the bugs but it will definitely discourage them from biting you! Hence, it is called a repellent!
Are you wanting to avoid toxic chemicals on your skin or wanting to avoid breathing them? What if you wanted a bug repellent combined with excellent skin care?? Then an all natural bug repellent is a safe and skin enhancing solution.
Lemongrass is a powerful bug repellent and contains citronellal, geraniol and alpha-pinene. It is an excellent conditioner for older skin. Bugs hate this stuff!
Neem oil is a naturally occurring pesticide found in seeds from the Neem tree. It is yellow to brown, has a bitter taste, and a garlic/sulfur smell. It is an excellent mosquito repellent and also disrupts larval growth. It is also wonderful for skin care. Loaded with nutrients, neem oil is also used in natural skin care products because it contains high levels of antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental damage. Neem also helps fight free radical damage in the skin because it contains carotenoids, which provide high antioxidant compounds.
Citronella comes from a fragrant shrub from the geranium family. It’s most commonly used as a natural fragrant oil, in insect repellents, as well as in beauty, household and perfume products. According to dozens of clinical studies, pure citronella oil is an antiseptic, antimicrobial and antifungal treatment. The most popular use for citronella is as a constituent in homemade or commercially sold insect repellents, since it naturally repels mosquitos and other bugs. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency considers citronella to be a “biopesticide” that has a nontoxic mode of action against insects. Because it fights infections, bacteria and fungi, historically it’s also been used to sanitize surfaces and treat bites or parasites.
Bugg Off can also sanitize surfaces! Yes, I had to repeat that! It comes in an 8 oz blue cobalt colored plastic bottle with a sprayer. Shake Well Before Using!
