Embrace the Outdoors with Natural Bug Spray Solutions

As summer approaches, so does the buzzing and biting of bugs and ticks. If you’re searching for effective bug repellents without the chemicals, you’ve come to the right place. In this Nutrition Made Simple video breakdown, Katie Coleman, co-owner of Nutrition World, shares insights into natural bug spray options that keep pesky insects at bay.

The DEET Dilemma

Before delving into natural alternatives, Katie touches on DEET, the chemical commonly found in bug sprays. While a 2017 study suggested DEET may not have neurotoxic or endocrine disrupting effects, Katie advocates for a move towards natural solutions, highlighting the concentrated nature of essential oils as an excellent alternative.

Essential Oil-Based Bug Sprays

Enter essential oils – nature’s bug repellent superheroes. Yaya Organics takes center stage with their baby bug spray, a gentle yet effective blend of soybean oil, geranium oil, castor oil, and water. Ideal for the little ones and equally suitable for adults, this concoction provides a natural defense against mosquitoes.

Targeted Protection: Mosquitoes vs. Ticks

Navigating through wooded areas or planning a camping trip? Yaya Organics has you covered with separate products for mosquitoes and ticks. The tick spray, containing castor oil, cedarwood oil, peppermint oil, rosemary, geranium, lemongrass, and thyme, ensures comprehensive protection against ticks in wooded environments.

Citronella Sticker Magic

For a kid-friendly and mess-free option, Katie recommends citronella stickers. Infused with citronella, cedarwood, clove, lemongrass, rosemary, and spearmint, these stickers can be effortlessly applied to clothing, providing an invisible shield against bugs while your little ones play freely.

Outdoor Ambiance: Bug-Repellent Incense

Lastly, elevate your outdoor gatherings with bug-repelling incense sticks. Nantucket Spider offers jumbo-sized incense sticks with pleasant scents that double as bug deterrents. Light these sticks for a bug-free atmosphere, ideal for gatherings or quiet evenings on the porch.

Tried-and-True Jewelweed for Bug Bites

In the unfortunate event of a bug bite or skin irritation, Katie introduces jewelweed soap and spray. Evidently designed to alleviate bug bites, poison ivy, poison oak, sunburns, and more, these herbal remedies provide soothing relief, ensuring your outdoor adventures stay enjoyable.

Conclusion to Natural Bug Spray

Before you gear up for a summer filled with outdoor activities, consider making the switch to natural bug repellents. Yaya Organics, Nantucket Spider, and jewelweed-based solutions offer a range of options to keep you bug-free without compromising on your health or the environment.
