Did you know?

So, when the bugs are all gone for the day and the strong scents of our oils below begin to fade, all you will be left with is silky smooth skin with a small SPF, no need to shower or rinse off any residue or smells. Castor oil has also been known to help lighten up age spots and scars.
Pure Peppermint Oil
Pure peppermint oil has a high concentration of natural repellants, one in particular is menthone. This yellow oil is steam-distilled directly from the herb and can be found in many health food stores. Peppermint oil is high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin A, C, Minerals, Manganese, Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Folate, Copper and Potassium. Good news! If you do get bit by a bug, spray AMS (Adiós! Mo Skitos!) right on the bite and AMS will sooth your skin and take the itching away. So, the jury is in on the peppermint plant... it is one of the most naturally beneficial plants in the world and that's why it was chosen for our List of 6.
The strong aroma and menthol content of peppermint should be avoided during pregnancy. Check with your doctor before using this product.
Lemon-Eucalyptus oil has an extremely strong scent which many find appealing. That's all good, but the main reason this oil made our List of 6 was that the strong aroma lets bugs know you are not food. For some people, this fragrance also has some very soothing properties that help them relax.
