Our Insect Repellent was born in the tropical rainforest. No really, I was preparing to live in Costa Rica for 4 months and the need for a truly great all natural insect repellent was a must! We start with organic soybean oil, a natural source of lecithin, sterolins and vitamin E. Soybean oil is easily absorbed and leaves a smooth sensation to the skin. Soybean oil is also an excellent insect repellent. Organic jojoba oil is nourishing and has absorption properties that are similar to our skins own sebum. The aloe vera gel comes from the inner fillet of certified organically grown Aloe vera plants and is best suited as an emollient and moisturizer to the skin. To this fabulous base we add peppermint and lemongrass hydrosols along with insect repellent essential oils such as catnip, cedarwood, lemongrass, lemon eucalyptus, peppermint and geranium.
