Key Ingredient Benefits
Our bug remedy is made entirely of essential oils and hydrosols. These are 100% natural; grown, handpicked and steam-distilled in our herb gardens at the base of Mt Kenya.
The lemon eucalyptus contains eucalyptol, which at the concentration we are using, has the ability to repel insects from the skin once applied. This compound synergistically acts with those in tea tree, lavender, cedarwood and patchouli to maximize insect repellence for at least three long hours. The lavender oil also assists in the healing of insect bites. The lavender and tea tree hydrosols act as natural solubilizers; mixing with the essential oils and diluting them to assure safety.
Usage Tips: Shake the bottle for a few seconds to mix the oils and hydrosols. To ensure you are not allergic to this solution, kindly spray a little on your skin and wait for a few minutes. If no persisting irritation occurs, apply to the exposed areas of the body (the face, the hands and the feet) and repeat after every three hours (if necessary) to maximize repellence. Otherwise, stop.
This is a self-preserving natural bug remedy, free from DEET- the chemical used in many insect repellents and that is damaging to our environment.
