Bugs can be so irritating! You want to be outside and enjoy the nice weather but every few minutes, or sometimes seconds, you’re waving your arms trying to shoo a fly away only for it to come back again. Annoying, right? Now, with this all natural bug repellent salve stick you can enjoy the outdoors again. While all the essential oils used are insecticides, I chose some specifically for the kind of bugs they repel. Flies such as horse fly, deer fly and the infamous black fly can be repelled with cedarwood, rosemary, peppermint and lemongrass. Cedar and lemon eucalyptus are great for deterring ticks while mosquitoes dislike peppermint, clove, lemongrass, eucalyptus, Nootka tree and catnip essential oils. Vanilla is also great for repelling chiggers. Peppermint and eucalyptus fight off gnats, making this a well rounded natural bug repellent. Coconut oil and olive oil are used in this salve because they have a low SPF so it won’t cause your skin to get burnt, however, I would still suggest wearing a higher SPF along with it. There is also more beeswax used in this compared to other salves, this is to prevent it from melting so easily. Keep it out of the sun or hot cars!
