Calling all outdoor enthusiasts! TerraShield—the Repellent Blend—is about to be your new adventure buddy. From hiking to camping to just sitting out on the back porch, TerraShield is a great outdoor companion.
Known as the Repellent Blend, TerraShield is a natural repellent made with pure CPTG® essential oils. At doTERRA, we know how vital it is to protect your family in safe, natural ways—even when it comes to combating mosquitos. But most repellents are full of toxins and synthetics, which can leave you feeling helpless and frustrated as your only choices seem to be to use a toxin-ridden repellent, suffer the bites, or stay inside all summer. We understand how important it is to protect your family without synthetic products, which is why we created TerraShield.
TerraShield reflects EPA guidelines and regulations as a registered repellent in the US and has tested at greater than 90% efficacy at more than four hours. With this natural repellent, you and your family can enjoy mosquito-free time in nature.
TerraShield is a blend of Citronella, Lemongrass, Thyme, Cedarwood, and Peppermint essential oils in a base of sesame seed oil. Each essential oil was selected based on its traditional use outdoors, as well as its ability to repel mosquitos under the EPA guidelines.
An easy way to use TerraShield is simply to apply it to your skin. Put a few drops on your ankles, wrists, and neck to repel mosquitos naturally during your outdoor activities and adventures
