I am a big believer in natural remedies and eliminating chemicals/toxins from my home, but of course it takes a lot of time and effort to do this, so it is a journey. When you set out on a “clean living” lifestyle journey it is important to remember that the process can take a long time but baby steps in the right direction are still helping you move towards your goal.
Today we are talking bug repellent, I grew up using the typical brands of bug spray that are chalk full of the bad-but-keeps-the-bugs-away chemicals and it did the job. However over the last few years I have reconsidered using the deet-laden products and have tried a few “all natural” repellents and even a couple of the wild do-it-yourself solutions that I have found on the internet. Unfortunately for my family, we have tried many products with little success until recently, when we tried the Escents Survival Kit.
The Escents Survival kit includes:
- Outdoor Body Balm
- Outdoor Body Mist
- Outdoor Aroma Blend
- Outdoor Shampoo/Shower/Shave Bar
The Escents Survival kit is unique because all of the products are free of Parabens, No DPG or phthalates, No Mineral Oils, Artifical Colors and of course, no ‘deet’. So your wondering what does it contain to keep the bugs away right?! Well the Escents Survival Line uses Lavender and Lemongrass Essential Oils in their products to keep you smelling great and free of Mosquitoes.
While I enjoyed using all of the Survival Kit products my favorite was the body balm, mainly because I can keep it in my diaper bag without having to worry about a spill! Since using the Escents Survival Kit I haven’t notice a bug bite on my kiddos or myself and I love the lemongrass smell! Win Win!!
You can find the entire Outdoor Survival Kit on the Escents website or at a local Escents retailer (West Edmonton Mall for the Edmonton locals).
