No more mosquitoes
We live right next to a lake. I guess I should say that we're 'right on' the lake. It's beautiful, and we love it. BUT... along with the singing frogs and the beautiful views comes something that is not so fun... mosquitos! They come out just as the sunlight is starting to dim and they stay just like unwelcomed guests throughout the night if you let them. Any time a company allows me to review an all-natural bug repellant, I'm all over it! This time around I was fortunate enough to try Nature's Gift's Skeeter Beater. Cool name, awesome product!
The first time I used it I threw all caution to the wind and did some outdoor entertaining, wearing a rather short summery dress. I used the gel formula by pouring a quarter-sized amount in the palm of my hand and rubbed my hands together. I applied it to my legs, then arms, then my chest and neck, and finally a small amount on my face and top of my head. Great news, success! I stayed outside most of the evening, eating and having fun, while smelling delicious and enjoying my own personal bug-free environment.
The next day I did a bite check, and there were none to count! Believe me when I say that I am generally a mosquito magnet! If you're like me you cannot be bite free in a mosquito-ridden area without some help. So this product REALLY worked and I'm very happy to recommend it whole heartedly. Be bug-free this summer by using Skeeter Beater!
Here's what Nature's Gift has to say ~
A blend of our Lemon scented Tea Tree (the most powerful natural insect repellant that I know of), Lemon Eucalyptus (recognized by the FDA as a natural insect repellant) Atlas Cedarwood, and our Sumatran Patchouli. Friends have raved about the success they've had keeping fleas off dogs, horseflies off horses, and mosquitoes off themselves with this blend. At a recent Health Festival, Debi discovered that a band of diluted Skeeter Beater around each ankle kept the Chiggers from attacking.
Add a few drops of the synergy to the pool of melted wax in a patio candle, use in an aroma lamp or diffuser, or just add to your favorite massage base to keep the mosquitoes away. The scent of the blend is sweetly lemon, with an earthy undertone. Yummy and smile bringing even if it served no useful purpose. Read some clients' experience with our Skeeter Beater Blend.
Available in an undiluted synergy, body oil (diluted in Jojoba), and in an Aloe Gel base. Sometimes the oil based blend is just not comfortable to wear in extreme heat and humidity; while an alcohol based dilution doesn't last long at all. The Skeeter Beater Gel is much more comfortable in the heat, but not as long lasting as the oil based Body Oil. If you are unfamiliar with aromatherapy or how to dilute essential oils properly, please buy the body oil or the gel. They're ready to use right out of the bottle. We truly don't recommend making a body spray out of the undiluted synergy; in our experience a water-based spray seems to need re-applying more frequently than either the oil based or the gel.
Also, we get a lot of requests for advice on how to use the Skeeter Beater on various fur family members. Please remember that you should NEVER use any essential oil product on cats. They can not metabolize the oils the way humans, dogs and horses can, and you run the risk of causing liver damage. For our dogs, we tend to rub a bit of either the oil based dilution or the gel between our palms, and then brush the 'critter' with them, from ears to tail.
If the dog has a fabric collar, putting a drop of the undiluted synergy on the collar is another option.
