Natural Insect Repellent

a natural, safe bug spray that works!

Dr Jess: This recipe was originally adapted and added too from and it was made it to huge demand for our clinic. We have now tested this bug spray all over the world when travelling and hundreds of our patients and family and friends swear by it. All notice they rarely get bitten by anything when using it. Even better, with its high levels of essential oils if you spray it on an insect bite the antibacterial properties of the oils reduce the risk of infection and they act to calm any itching. It is safe for even young children, just do a skin patch test (spray on small patch of unbroken skin, leave overnight and check no redness or irritation) to check there are no allergies or sensitivities to the essential oils, and cover their eyes when spraying on.
