Nothing ruins a summer moment quite like a giant bug bite. We love this season for the temps that encourage us to get out and enjoy the perfect hike, outdoor picnic, or quick bike ride to catch the sunset. The warm weather also stirs up tiny creatures we share the planet with, inviting them to chomp away. (Rude.) Itchy, scratchy, unsightly insect bites can become painfully irritated, infected and sometimes lead to illness. If you live in a climate where bugs take a bite out of your outdoor fun, it’s a good idea to protect yourself by adding Life Elements Natural Outdoor Bug Spray to your skincare arsenal.
Most bug sprays on the market use one or two ingredients known to keep bugs at bay. Some of the most effective ingredients are listed below:
- Lemongrass has a strong fragrance and is registered with the FDA as a natural mosquito repellent. It is also known to relieve pain and swelling.
- Rosemary is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory compounds known to drive away bothersome bugs, flies and mosquitoes.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have approved Eucalyptus Oil as an effective ingredient in mosquito repellent and has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe wounds.
- Tea Tree Oil has germ-fighting elements and has been shown to reduce skin scars.
Life Elements Natural Outdoor Bug Spray is hand-crafted using nature-based, ancient, and proven ingredients with healing properties, used for insect protection as well as hydration, and soothing of the skin. Life Elements founder and chief alchemist, Martha Van Inwegen, has created a distinctive blend of 10 essential oils that have “repellant” properties. Martha firmly believes this potent combination is extremely important because, when mixed together, the ingredients work in sync to produce an active “entourage” effect. In addition to Lemongrass, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, and Tea Tree Oil, Life Elements Natural Outdoor Bug Spray includes Lavender, Lemon Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Rosewood, Geranium, and Pennyroyal. The unique blend of these amazing nature-based ingredients keeps bugs away while keeping you hydrated, moisturized, and healthy.
Why Put Unnecessary Chemicals on Your Body?
Many chemicals used in skincare products can cause allergic reactions, skin irritations and rashes. Those reactions are cause to cautiously exercise research and awareness when choosing personal care products with skin contact. Many mainstream bug repellents have the chemical ingredient DEET in their products. DEET was developed by the U.S. Army in 1946 and was registered for use by the general public in 1957. Approved by the CDC and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use by people of all ages, DEET, N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide, is nonetheless a chemical. Life Elements prides itself on creating nature-based products free of synthetic chemicals, toxins, and environmental pollutants.
Our team is concerned about people AND the planet, with a goal to promote “clean” and effective bath, body, and skincare solutions. Life Elements Natural Outdoor Bug Spray has been specifically designed to be free of harsh chemicals so you don’t have to worry about putting toxins on your skin or introducing harmful chemicals back into the environment. By using earth-derived ingredients that naturally repel bugs, such as Lemongrass, Eucalyptus and Rosemary, you can be insect-free and feel comfortable knowing your ingredients are non-toxic.
Naturally Moisturizing and Deodorizing?
The ingredients selected for Life Elements Natural Outdoor Bug Spray combine to create a light fragrance that is irresistible to humans but disgusting to bugs. While bugs stay clear when they smell the scent, our spray can be used as a natural deodorizer to combat stinky sneakers, sports bags, and yoga mats. The fragrance has been known to repel creepy critters without leaving residue on the skin. Not oily or greasy, it is safe and moisturizing for sensitive skin. Our spray is also alcohol-free so the mist is hydrating when applied to the face as well as all exposed skin areas.
