For a long time DEET has been touted as one of the most effective bug repellents. I'm not going to say it doesn't work but what if there was an alternative to rubbing harsh chemicals on your skin? In a national study comparing DEET and Catnip essential oil, the catnip essential oil repelled 10 times more mosquitos than the DEET. We developed our herbal bug repellent using only oils and essential oils that have bug repellent properties. We felt this was important because your skin is the largest organ in your body and absorbs some of what it is exposed to. We wanted a bug repellent that we could put on and forget about rather than worry about what it is doing to our health. Our Herbal Bug Repellent Stick contains citronella, cedar, litsea, lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, and catnip essential oils.
