When my daughter gets bitten by a mosquito, an angry red welt shows up on the surface of her skin within minutes. Iâ€™ve never seen anything quite like it â€“ one minute sheâ€™s outside playing and the next, sheâ€™s close to tears because sheâ€™s dotted with big, itchy bumps. The bites swell up, turn a bright shade of crimson and last for days â€“ there have been times when Iâ€™ve deliberately kept her out of the public eye, lest folks think sheâ€™s covered in chicken pox.
Iâ€™ve been using bug spray on her this summer â€“ sparingly, mind you â€“ but unfortunately, it really hasnâ€™t given her much relief. I was just saying to my husband earlier this month that I wished there was a product I could use on her without feeling like I was dousing her with chemicals, and then I heard about Bug-it-Off â€“ a natural, organic bug repellent from Greenerways Organic thatâ€™s safe for people (including pregnant women!), pets and the environment. Bug-it-Off is the first â€“ and only â€“ organic bug spray to hit the shelves, and I gotta say, itâ€™s about time!
Bug-it-Off is a mixture of pure water and essential organic oils (citronella and cedarwood). There are no additional ingredients â€“ no soaps, glycerine or alcohol will take away from the oils. Those ingredients are added separately to each bottle so that they maintain their purest state; the end result is a product thatâ€™s not only 100% organic bur also DEET-free!
