ESSENTIAL BUG BUTTER INSECT REPELLENT
Like all my balms I started with my Dandelion oil base which I use for most of the balms that I make why?. Well because Dandelion oil is a little miracle that heals so many things, from scrapes and cuts to dry skin, it eases arthritis pain. Dandelions were proven to increase the rate at which skin cells regenerate. This is important for anti-aging and for dry skin or eczema, they fight inflammation, hydrate the skin, and boost collagen production. And there is more: Dandelions contain potent antioxidants, help fight inflammation ( with my chronic pain and arthritis I know this is true I have been using it for my arthritis for a couple years now another reason I make all my balms from it)
I could go on all day about this wonderful plant, I have been using it almost daily now for well over a year or two when I first started making simple balms with it, It is a great healing balm on it's own so why wouldn't you use it in your products when you can, it just makes sense to me, enough of that lets get back to the MOZZIE problem.
So to the oil base I added nourishing butters, castor oil, vitamin e oil and beeswax.. If any thing that little concoction right there might attract the mozzies so now for the essential oils hmm. I thought, like a made scientist I went to work. The end result was a potent combination of nine different essential oils, yep that's right nine, an extreme problem calls for extreme measures.. So far so good the flies are not bothering me and nor the mozzies. So why not give it a go.."Essential Bug Butter", the one essential you should have handy for hiking, camping BBQS, and whenever you outdoors
