I spend a lot of time in the woods. I live in the woods. And I've seen what Lyme Disease can do to someone as well as experienced it first-hand. But, I don't like chemicals and I don't like bugs or ticks. I also don't like the smell of citronella, which didn't leave me with too many choices out there for protection, as it seems that that is the go to in natural insect protection.
So of course, being me, I decided to create my own. Not only does it smell amazing, it repels every type of insect out there; spiders, ants, deer flies as well as all types of ticks, mosquito's and biting flies.
You can spray it around your house, on your sheets and around the yard to keep your area insect free. You can spray it on yourself, your clothes, your hats and helmets and your shoes. The cinnamon bark can be a skin irritant (even though it is all organically sourced) so it is recommended everyone who uses it spots tests for irritability.
