Using Essential Oils in Natural Bug Spray

Using essential oils as a natural bug spray has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional insect repellents. One of the main benefits of using essential oils is that they are natural and do not contain any harmful chemicals, making them safe to use on both adults and children.

The essential oils used in this particular bug spray, including citronella, clove, lemongrass, cedarwood, and peppermint, have all been shown to be effective at repelling insects, including mosquitoes, flies, and ticks.

Pleasant Aroma and Effective Protection

Citronella oil is a well-known insect repellent that has been used for many years in candles and other products. It is derived from a plant called Cymbopogon, which is native to Asia and has a strong, lemon-like scent. Clove oil is another effective insect repellent that is derived from the buds of the clove tree. Lemongrass oil has a fresh, citrusy scent and is known to repel mosquitoes and other insects. Cedarwood oil has a woodsy scent and has been shown to repel ticks, while peppermint oil has a minty scent and is known to repel flies and other insects.

Safe and Carefully Formulated by a Biochemist and Father

Say goodbye to traditional insect repellents and hello to an all-natural bug spray that you can trust. This non-toxic formula was carefully crafted by a biochemist father, who knows the importance of both effectiveness and safety.

The active and inert ingredients work together to repel a wide range of insects, without exposing you or your family to harmful chemicals. The use of essential oils such as citronella, clove, lemongrass, cedarwood, and peppermint, not only provides effective insect repelling, but also gives the spray a pleasant aroma that makes it a joy to use.

Chemical-Free Lifestyle

You deserve a bug spray that is safe for you and the environment and also provides top-notch protection against pesky insects. That’s why our bug spray is formulated using only FIFRA exempt ingredients, which are derived from the EPA’s list of generally recognized as safe ingredients.

These carefully selected ingredients have been expertly blended to provide you with an effective and all-natural bug spray.  You can confidently apply it to your skin knowing that it contains only the best ingredients, free from harmful chemicals. So why settle for anything less? 

Why not use DEET?

There are several reasons why you might want to avoid DEET in a family bug spray. Firstly, DEET is a chemical insecticide that can be harmful to both humans and the environment. It has been linked to skin irritation, allergic reactions, and even neurological problems in some people. Secondly, DEET is not safe for use on young children, particularly those under two months old. Thirdly, DEET can also be harmful to pets, especially cats, who may be more susceptible to its toxic effects.

What is DEET?

DEET, or N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide, is a synthetic chemical compound used in insect repellents to deter biting insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. DEET was first developed by the U.S. Army in 1946 and has been used extensively ever since.

This chemical is considered hazardous by the 2012 OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200)

What is bug spray poisoning?

Bug spray poisoning occurs when a person inhales, ingests, or absorbs through the skin toxic chemicals that are found in insecticides or bug sprays. These chemicals can cause a range of symptoms depending on the amount and type of chemical that was ingested, inhaled, or absorbed.

Symptoms of bug spray poisoning can include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, seizures, and in severe cases, coma or death.

If you suspect that you or someone else has been exposed to bug spray poisoning, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. Treatment may involve supportive care to manage symptoms, as well as potentially using antidotes or other treatments to remove the toxins from the body.
