Nothing ruins a pleasant hike for you and your pet quite like an annoying cloud of mosquitoes or black flies.What was supposed to be a fun can get turned into torture by bugs relentless biting. Bug season is almost upon us here and we have an outdoor herbal spray that could make life much easier for your pet... without any synthetic chemicals. Our favorite herbalist makes a wide range of products that work on a variety of conditions, and the Outdoor Herbal Spray is one that sells consistently every year. Made of an alcohol free combination of witch hazel and a propritetary blend of essential plant oils, this All Natural Spray could be a safe way to reduce those nasty bug bites.
We have read anecdotal that witch hazel will both repel insects and soothe existing bites from them. If you have any doubts that plant essential oil can be effective then have a look at this study that showed catnip oil (one of several oils registered with the EPA as a mosquito detterent) could 10X as effective as the chemical DEET.
DEET has been linked to neurological problems in humans so it may be something you want to avoid putting on your pet. You also want to limit your use of ANY chemicals on your puppy as they still have developing systems. In humans DEET is not recommended for use on infants comparatively.
Essential oils are plants natural defence against biting insects that would devour them so you know you have millions of years of evolution on your side with this strategy. You will have to reapply every few hours but studies have shown that essential oils can be as effective as chemicals.
Be prepared with Outdoor Herbal Spray available in our online store. This potent mix of essential oils features neem, lemon grass, and cinnamon.
