A natural, child safe means of deterring biting insects without the use of Deet.
Any herbalist will tell you that many of our "weeds" can be our friends. Protecting yourself or your children against annoying insects doesn't have to mean using a product with a warning label.
Plantain, yarrow and comfrey are the chosen plants for this deet free herbal infusion insect bite treatment and deterrent.
Plantain is a commonly seen weed and amazingly efficient at neutralizing the sting of bugs and bees. It has astringent, soothing, antimicrobial properties that make it a beneficial addition to this mix.
Yarrow is usually associated with the story of Achilles' using it to stop the bleeding wounds of his soldiers in battle. Its astringent, antiseptic and analgesic properties add up to it being a first aid kit in one plant.
Another wonderful healer is comfrey, a large fuzzy garden herb. Rich in chlorophyll, minerals and mucilage the leaves are an ally for cooling and soothing irritated skin.
Herbal Vinegar Insect Bite Treatment and Deterrent Body Spray is ideal for people who are seeking an herbal product but would rather avoid the concentration of essential oils. We're relying solely on the strength of the herbs themselves.
Essential oils may cross the placental barrier so to be on the safe side avoid their use during pregnancy or first check with your physician.
Comfrey and Yarrow may be on the "avoid" list during pregnancy therefore check with your physician.
Spray exposed skin with this herbal vinegar as often as needed. Avoid contact with the eyes.
Herbal Vinegar Insect Bite Treatment and Deterrent Body Spray comes in a 4 oz. or 8 oz. plastic spray bottle.
