Protect yourself naturally with our Blood Sucker Bug Repellent… made with organic essential oils instead of poisons.
There is a lot of research looking into the effectiveness of natural, plant based repellants.
One study has found Catnip essential oil to be especially effective.
“Researchers report that Nepetalactone, the essential oil in Catnip that gives the plant its characteristic odor, is about ten times more effective at repelling mosquitos than DEET- the compound used in most commercial insect repellents.” -Science Daily-
Although it has been found to be quite as effective, it may need to be applied more often for best results, as the oils dissipate more quickly…every 2 or 3 hours should be good for most situations. Don’t forget to shake up the bottle!
We use Catnip in this recipe, along with other essential oils that have a good reputation for repelling insect pests.
