This bug repellent was formulated as an extra strength lotion designed for those who are extremely sensitive to bugs. A little bit goes a long way with this product!
Plant-based repellents have been used for generations to protect against mosquitoes and other insects. Most plants contain compounds used in preventing attack from phytophagus (plant eating) insects. It is also likely that many plant volatiles (smells) are deterrents because they have high vapor toxicity to insects (you can thank evolution for that benefit). Mass screening of plants for repellent activity was how science discovered PMD (para-methane 3-8, diol), an effective and commercially available repellent (discovered in the 1960s). PMD, which is found in lemon eucalyptus, is the only plant-based repellent that has been advocated for use in disease endemic areas by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) due to its proven clinical efficacy against malaria It poses no risk to human health (1). Our formula contains Lemon Eucalyptus among other bug-deterring essential oils. Read more about our formula here: https://thefarmlife.com/staying-safe-with-bug-spray/
