Skeeter Season is Upon Us!

It’s that time of year when the bugs are biting. Ouch! Not to mention, the horrible itch and the so very dangerous diseases you can get from mosquitoes, ticks, and other nasty bugs. So you know that you need a bug spray… Something to keep the bugs from biting and to just keep them far away. You’re hesitant about purchasing the bug spray at your local department store because you found out all the dangerous chemicals in that tiny can of spray. Now, you’re online researching a natural way to deflect bugs and you have stumbled upon this page.

You found it! There is a natural product to take the place of those chemicals!

Deflect™ is an exceptional essential oil blend used to repel insects. Each of the plant deflect-1026extracts in this blend plays a crucial role in warding off insects. A single application is enough to avert insect bites for five to six hours. It is safe because it does not contain artificial chemicals which might affect people in a negative way.

Benefits Include:

  • Repels harmful biting insects for up to 5 hours
  • Natural product without harmful chemicals
  • Discourages insects from landing on surfaces
  • Aids in eliminating lice infestation by applying to bedding and clothing
  • May avert fungal growth by applying to moist surface

You can use this oil blend 2 different ways:

  • Diffusion: Diffuse 3-5 drops or more in the PURELY™ diffuser of your choice.
  • Topical: Dilute 1-2 drops with a PURELY™ carrier oil before use according to the dilution table shown. Be sure to test for sensitivity.

Now let’s talk about cost. The average cost of a chemical filled aerosol can of bug spray is about $8. This can will likely last you and your family a couple of weeks if using regularly (and gosh I hope you aren’t!) This 10ml bottle of Deflect Essential Oil Blend is only $14. It only takes a couple of drops mixed with some carrier oil to smooth on your legs and arms. This bottle of Deflect yields about 170 drops. That’s about 85 uses out of one tiny bottle! Here is some math for you: For an average family of 4, statistically you have outdoor festivities and are at risk of insect bites 2 times a week. 4 people x 2 times= 8 doses of Deflect you’ll need in a week. 85 bottle uses divided by 8 weekly doses needed= nearly 11 weeks of doses for your whole family. That is almost the entire summer!cocnut oil
