A few weeks ago, Young Living released a brand new product that I snatched up real quick: 100% plant based formula, EPA approved, Insect Repellent!! I couldn’t wait to test it out!
Made with a pure sesame oil base, this repellent has a golden tint that can stain clothes, so be careful when applying. Make sure to use a small amount and rub it completely into your skin to avoid staining.
I found it absorbed quickly and smoothly, and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy like many conventional types. Don’t you just hate when you spray repellent on and feel like you need to shower to get it all off you? Yuck!
I’m impressed that it’s DEET free, with no parabens, petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances or synthetic colorants. It’s super safe for everyone, including children (with adult supervision for application).
It includes all the essential oils traditionally recommended for their bug-repellent properties: Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Geranium, Spearmint, Thyme and Clove and the aroma is a light citrus smell that’s actually pleasant! The final ingredient is 1% Vitamin E, a natural plant-based preservative. That’s it. No junk, no nasty chemicals.
Is it pricey? You bet! It’s the best quality product you can find made with the most pure, powerful oils in the world. This bottle is filled with essential oils, so you’re not buying a $5 bottle of synthetic chemicals duplicated in a lab! This is nature’s purity and trust me, the price tag is worth it! It’s also hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested.
I’m absolutely in love with this and so thankful to have an insect repellent the whole family can use without fear!
