When it comes to stings and bites.....we believe that prevention is a much better option than cure!
The Essential oil blend that we have created is to deter insects from landing on your skin and to avoid their bites and stings. It contains lavender essential oil and thyme essential oil which are both good for the skin. It is already blended and can be used straight from the bottle or a few drops placed in water to spray around or on clothing.
FYI.....Peppermint also deters insects.....especially spiders!

Botanical Name: Lavandula dentata
Linalyl acetate: 32.38%
Plant Part: Flowers
Processing Method: Steam Distillation
Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, colourless to pale yellow liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note of strong aroma, Lavender French has a strong floral scent that is somewhat camphoraceous, and smells like fresh lavender.
Product Abstract: The Lavender plant is a woody evergreen shrub, up to 1 meter tall, with pale
green, narrow linear leaves and violet blue flowers. The entire plant is covered with oil glands, which are in the star shaped hairs that cover the plant. Lavender has been used since ancient times, and the Romans added lavender to their bath water, hence the name from the Latin lavare, 'to wash'. Differences in soil, altitude and temperature, precipitation and seasons contribute to subtle changes in the
scent from one lot of Lavender to another.
Plant Part: Leaves
Processing Method: Steam Distilled
Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, pale yellow liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note with a strong aroma, Red Thyme has a woody, medicinal scent described as both sharp and warming.
Product Abstract: Thyme is an evergreen perennial shrub that grows up to 45 cm (18 inches)
in height. It has a woody root system with a multi-branched stem, small elliptical greenish-gray leaves and pale purple or white flowers. Thyme is derived from the Greek word thymos that
means 'perfume'. It was used in herbal medicines by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans, as incense in Greek temples, and in embalming by the Egyptians. During the Middle Ages it was
given to jousting knights for courage, and a sprig of thyme was later carried into courtrooms to ward off diseases (as well as to freshen the air).
Note: The active ingredient, thymol, may crystallize in temperatures below 20 degree Celsius. We would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state. Be sure to shake before use.
Cautions: Red Thyme contains a high amount of toxic phenols (carvacrol and thymol) that can irritate mucus membranes, and must be diluted well before use. Avoid use if under the care of a medical practitioner. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Botanical Name: Mentha Piperita
Plant Part: Herb
Processing Method: Steam Distilled
Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, colorless to pale yellow liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A top note with a strong aroma, Peppermint has a sharp, penetrating scent based on its high menthol content. The minty sweetness of the vapor makes it one of the most popular Essential Oils.
Product Abstract: Mentha piperita, also known as ‘candy mint’, was once thought to be a
species, but has been found to be a perennial hybrid that only proliferates by spreading its rhizomes underground. A very hearty fast-growing herb, it can grow anywhere. It has reddish veins
and lightly fuzzy leaves, and its interesting chromosome count can vary between 66 and 120 chromosomes. Peppermint's name has its roots in Greek mythology. Hades, god of the dead, pursued the
beautiful nymph, Minthe. Hades' wife, Persephone, became jealous and turned Minthe into a small and insignificant plant on which to be trampled. Pluto could not undo the transformation, but
ensured that Minthe would always be loved for her fragrant aroma. Peppermint is used as a flavouring agent in the food industry, and in soaps, candles and toiletries.
Note: Because of the very high menthol content of this oil, it may crystalize. If so, we would recommend placing the bottle in a very hot water bath, and changing the water frequently until it is back to its liquid state, then gently agitate before use.
Cautions: Dilute very well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
