I have personally found the Young Living Insect Repellent to be effective in repelling many insects including ticks!
The best part is that this formula is plant based without harmful chemicals!
Young Living’s Insect Repellent is clinically proven to repel mosquitoes and other tiny invaders using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients. It also includes 1% Vitamin E to moisturize and condition skin. The formula absorbs easily into the skin without a greasy or sticky finish and is great for use on children as well.
It has a pleasant citrusy aroma and includes Young Living Citronella, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Geranium, Spearmint, Thyme and Clove essential oils.
Whether you are spending time in the backyard or the backwoods, you can feel great knowing you have a pure, plant-based way to protect yourself and your family!
