This oil blend was created for our own family who are active campers and hikers. We use this around our farm and especially in the heavily wooded areas.
Maximize its benefits by applying to your entire body before getting dressed. This helps prevent those sneaky bugs from crawling up inside your clothing. It is safe for ages 6yrs and up, doesn't need to be washed off and not recommended for face but can be applied to the neck and ears. It offers anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. With this in mind, it helps to prevent foot fungus from wearing wet dirty socks all day while hiking and possibly ring worm. The circulation properties could help with tired feet and minor aches.
Made with organic hemp oil, organic neem oil, sunflower nut oil, clove, cassia cinnamon, lemongrass, sweet orange and cedarwood. This is a very strong blend and it is recommended to test first on the inside of your elbow and wait 24 hours before applying to the entire body. On many occasions, the accompanying campers have complimented on how nice it smells and ask to borrow some as well.
The Camping Bug Oil is fresh made to order and the shelf life is approximately 8 months. To prolong the shelf life, it is important to keep it in its protective brown glass bottle, keep the top on when not using and to not leave it in a hot vehicle or in direct sunlight. There are no chemicals or preservatives, so its up to us to protect it with a little extra care. A little goes a long ways, so use a full dropperfull in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and apply a thin barrier layer.
This will arrive in a 1 ounce brown glass bottle with a dropper included.
I've started using this every time I head outside. The mosquitos here in AL have been atrocious this year (compared to last year when we first moved up) to the point where they've been eating me alive. I'm not normally their favorite meal (that'd be the boyfriend...they LOVE him). This stuff keeps them away from me. They buzz around but don't actually land. A little bit goes a LONG way, which is really nice as well. I LOVE the smell of cinnamon. It makes it so pleasant to wear.
I've already used the oil on a camping trip, with great success.
I haven’t had a chance to use this product for what I bought it for. Red Bugs/ Chiggers get pretty bad in the grass and woods around here. Hope to put it to the test this summer. I have used as an air freshener! I put a few drops on a cotton round and laid it in my linen closet. Smells soooo good!
