Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-greasy, non-sticky application.

AFTER BITES

Cut garlic clove in half and apply cut side direct to bite for immediate relief of bee or wasp stings.  Apply Purification and Lavender to bite for lasting relief.

For ticks:  apply 1 drop Peppermint or *Thieves essential oil direct to tick – it should wiggle out on it’s own.  *Thieves is a hot oil and can feel hot when applied directly on skin, however, most people do not mind the heat as the objective is to get the tick out.  

After removal, apply Lavender essential oil to the site of bite.
