Organic Bug Repellent

During the summer we need to protect us from bugs such as mosquitos and ticks, in Los Angeles I don't deal with them much but in Italy, I deal with persistent "tiger" mosquitos. Conventional bug repellents are not an option since are full of toxic chemicals that are unsafe for us with their collateral toxic effects, and the environment, in fact, the put-in risk other creatures such as honeybees and aquatic life.

According to MADE SAFE, Ingredients to avoid are Deet an active ingredient linked to skin blisters, seizures, memory loss, headaches, stiffness in joints, shortness of breath, and skin irritation, it has been detected in groundwater, surface water, and drinking water. Cyfluthrin linked to neurotoxicity, muscle trembling, and behavior changes, Permethrin is a synthetic pesticide, also toxic to aquatic life, bees, and fish.  Pyrethroids is an insecticide linked to dermatitis and asthma-like reactions, nausea, burning sensations, loss of coordination, and endocrine disruption. The majority of the chemicals within this class are toxic to aquatic life and fish as well.

  • Skip products containing both sunscreen and bug spray, as the mixture may increase your skin’s absorption of the chemicals.

  • Look for plant-based alternatives with bug-repelling oils like citronella, clove, lemongrass, lemon eucalyptus, thyme, and neem.

  • Clove Oil – One study found that clove oil, when compared against five other oils, was one of the two most effective mosquito repellents. Clove oil is most effective when mixed with other oils such as geranium oil or thyme oil.

  • Lemongrass – Also listed on labels as cymbopogon citratus or schoenanthus oil, lemongrass oil is another great natural alternative. In one study, this oil was found to be 74 percent and 95 percent effective against two species of mosquitoes for up to 2.5 hours.

  • The Cutter Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent Aerosol contains 30% of oil of lemon eucalyptus.  And the Off Botanicals Insect Repellent IV is comprised of 10% synthetic PMD. CDC warns against use on children younger than 3 years old.

Here you will find all-natural bug repellent made with organic ingredients,  DEET-free,citronella-free. Permethrin-free. Cruelty-free. They protect you from bugs like mosquitos and ticks and don’t have collateral toxic effects on us and the environment.
