While researching for this product, I discovered two main components on our skin’s surface that attract mosquitoes: CO2 and metabolized cholesterol. In response, I created an effective, all-natural bug repellent that fights mosquitoes on both fronts: it decreases CO2 emissions while masking the scent of cholesterol. This blend of essential oils and other non-toxic ingredients has a Pacific Northwest essence that will leave you feeling as if you are a part of the outdoors, while remaining undetected by mosquitoes and other biting insects that may cross your path.
