During the summer, my kids and I basically live outside. One of the first places I make feel like home each time we move is our backyard. When we lived in Mississippi, our backyard was my paradise. It was big, with a hammock, a patio big enough for a table and plenty of room for friends, and huge whiskey barrels of plants. I try to plant some plants that are naturally bug repellant to prevent the Mississippi state bird from harassing us, but that’s not always effective enough (especially in the swamps!). So, I looked for a natural bug spray that would be safe to use on even the smallest members of our family. Terrashield essential oil blend was the perfect solution.
Comprised of Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Catnip, Lemon Eucalyptus, Litsea, Arborvitae, Nootka, Tamanu, and Vanilla Bean Absolute oils, every component in Terrashield is included because it has chemical compounds in it that specifically repel environmental pests. All of these oils, diluted this way, are safe to be used on everyone in your family– from the smallest to the biggest– which makes me feel great about only needing ONE spray bottle of natural bug spray to cover my whole family. Want a bonus to those benefits? The harvesting of Tamanu oil is benefiting the people of Madagascar by co-impact sourcing, where we work with the harvesters to improve their lives through providing their livelihood.
Terrashield essential oil blend comes in two forms: a 15 mL bottle of essential oil and a 30 mL ready-to-spray bottle so it’s super convenient, no matter HOW you want to use the natural bug spray. Looking for ideas on how to use it?
