I love natural solutions to problems that we typically throw chemicals at to solve. Insects are one of those issues. I, especially, have spent a large part of my life throwing chemicals at insects that like to bite me. I, apparently, am a yummy treat for many of these little parasites. Mosquitoes, fire ants, gnats and other unmentionables. These aren’t poisonous to me, thank goodness, but I do itch when bitten. I’ve tried everything from ‘Deet’ based products, which usually work (but I am afraid of the long term damage to my cells for its constant use), to home made solutions with essential oils and my own herbal infusions. The home-made solutions are very time consuming, and hit and miss since I am a novice. This Insect Repellent Bracelet and clip is the best of both worlds in one. It is made from the essential oils that I am very familiar with, but doesn’t involve me slathering my skin with them. I’ve been wearing the bracelet almost continuously when outdoors (which I am outside a lot), and have noticed fewer bits. It hasn’t eliminated them entirely but I am not constantly swatting away the annoying creatures like I normally do, nor am I glowing with an oily glow from having applied my homemade concoctions head to toe. I believe this is working. I gave the clip to my husband, and as he is also a favorite snack of the voracious critters here in North Carolina (even the flies bite hard), and he has been complaining less. I am going to continue with this, and may get an extra set to use as an ankle bracelet to ensure that no matter where they try to bite, they will be faced with this wonderful assortment of natural ingredients that they HATE!
