TIPS FOR KEEPING PESTS AWAY:

  • Apply TerraShield® Repellent Blend to the skin before spending time outdoors.
  • Diffuse Cedarwood and Lemongrass indoors or outdoors to keep bugs away.
  • Dilute Clove with a carrier oil and apply generously to the skin when outdoors.

Essential Oils as a Natural Insect Repellent

There are many plants that contain vapors that act as barrier protection from potential threats in their environment, such as insects. These plants also provide us with a unique and natural gift of defending ourselves in the same way. Essential oils that are particularly helpful include Citronella, Peppermint, Cedarwood, and Lemongrass.

You can protect yourself, your home, and your garden with the bug repellent properties of Peppermint, Lemongrass, Rosemary, or Thyme oil. Diffusing these oils or putting a few drops directly on your skin can go a long way in protecting you from the creepy crawlies. You can also add it directly to mulch or soil as you garden.

Protect Your Children from Insects with Essential Oils

Because little ones shouldn’t be exposed to certain chemicals found in many insect repellents, TerraShield serves as an excellent natural solution. It’s made using only pure CPTG® essential oils, 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.
