Bug Sprays with NO DEET!!

Bug Sprays with NO DEET!!

But before you douse yourself in bug spray, take a careful look at the ingredients and make sure it doesn't contain DEET (diethyltoluamide). While DEET may keep mosquitoes away, its safety is questionable, especially for young children and older individuals.

Many of you have written and called asking about Bug spray and Mosquito solutions. One of the most important things to remember when using the Melaleuca products is that they are NOT pesticides and therefore will not stop the varmints from landing on you. They will deter them and greatly reduce the incidence of bites and the reaction that accompanies them. They also do not make you feel like you need to take a shower after you use them. They are enhanced by frequent use and your skin will be healthier because of it. It is also important to note that different body types respond differently to the different formulas. I have had people say that just taking the vitamin has stopped mosquito bites. Do not be afraid to experiment and find your own solution.... then pass it on.

Jody’s Favorite

1-8 oz. Body Satin Lotion 2-4 oz. Renew Bath Oil 12-15 drops T36-C5 Melaleuca oil 1-8 0z Solumel

Blend well and divide up in to small spray bottles (I get them at the dollar store!) Encourage others to apply this to all exposed skin surfaces, being careful not get any in the eyes. This is as an excellent mosquito preventative that’s equally good in preventing deer ticks and flies as well.

If you do get a bite…have your MelaGel handy!

An old time favorite!

2 oz Renew Spa and Bath oil

2 oz SoluMel

1 oz Tough and Tender

20+ drops of T36 C5

With 6-12 oz of water.

Applied frequently with spray bottle

If you are unfortunate enough to get into poison ivy or oak.... be sure and wash the area and your clothes with Melaleuca Naturals liquid soap.... then this is the ONLY time it is appropriate to use Solumel without diluting it.... but it works wonders if sprayed straight on the effected area. It stops the itch and dries it up really fast.

Below you will discover other formulas and solutions that have been shared.
