During this time of year bugs are a nuisance! Flies are starting to come out, mosquitos are making their seasonal appearance, and it won’t be long until the gnats start to become a problem. It’s easy to reach for one of those bug sprays, many of which contain deet, but why not try something more natural? There are several essential oils that are said to help ward off bugs. So instead of reaching for the spray try using one of our soaps that contain these essential oils in the morning to help deter the bugs. While there is no guarantee that using the soap will prevent all mosquitos and other bugs from bothering you (if you’ve ever used the sprays you know this is true with those as well) it can at least could help.
Lemongrass Green Tea Goat Milk Soap
A recent study revealed that lemongrass essential oil has the ability to help discourage mosquitos as well as deet. It has a wonderful woody, slightly citrus, scent that humans love, but apparently mosquitos hate. This is our go to soap when we are spending a lot of time outside and the mosquitos are biting.

Now, in addition to nightly “tick checks” we do whatever we can to avoid ticks getting on us and the children. Tea tree essential oil is supposed to help repel ticks.
