Bugs Away Spray 8 fl. oz.
Bugs Away Spray 8 fl. oz. Bugs Away Spray 8 fl. oz. Confuse the insects! Smell like a plant! Works by disguising your natural scent with strong scented plant oils, confusing the bugs. Made with pure essential oils of lemongrass, eucalyptus, sweet basil,neem, catnip, and cedar leaf. These emulsified botanical oils are in a base of distilled water. Easy to use and re-apply. I have been making the lotion for over 14 years, and FINALLY made a spray for you to use as well. As with any natural product, test on a small area for sensitivity before using. All the ingredients are safe for use with children - but always test first to see if they are sensitive to any of the essential oils. An all natural alternative to chemical repellents. Works well on mosquitoes and black flies. Why Natural “Bugs Away” and not DEET? Deet is very effective at repelling insects and is long lasting—however it comes with some serious medical concerns. The Pesticide Information Project of Cooperative Extension Offices of Cornell University states that, "Everglades National Park employees having extensive DEET exposure were more likely to have insomnia, mood disturbances and impaired cognitive function than were lesser exposed co-workers". It has also been shown to cause seizures in young children. Quantum Health News reports: “DEET should be used with caution due to its possible damaging effects on brain cells. Studies have shown that DEET causes brain cell death and behavioral changes in rats after frequent and prolonged use. This exposure causes neurons to die in regions of the brain that control muscle movement, learning, memory, and concentration. Rats treated with an average human dose of DEET (40 mg/kg body weight) performed far worse when challenged with physical tasks requiring muscle control, strength and coordination. These findings are consistent with reported human symptoms following DEET's use by the military in the Persian Gulf War.” From the Duke University Medical Center News Office
