The Bug Off is my take on a natural insect repelent. There are no chemicals, just essential oils that insects typically don't like and distilled water with a little alcohol to preserve it. I use Cedarwood, Peppermint and White Thyme essentail oils and it comes in a medium sized (4 oz) amber plastic bottle with a black lid. Great for travel size but it will last a while too.
I find it is useful for mosquitos and "no-see-ems" the little black flies that pack a punch in their bites, and use it also when in the woods to try to deter the ticks along with my garlic breath, high socks, and prayers. It's great to spray on your clothes, shoes, hat and safe to spray on exposed skin. Frequent application seems to help because the essential oils dissipate and then you will need to re-apply. Customers have been asking for it and so I made some and I am loving it for my own personal use. Hope it helps you keep the bugs off too. -AC
