5 Ways Lemongrass Oil Beats DEET
Spring is here and those of us that enjoy being outdoors know what that means.... BUGS! Dealing with pesky bugs while you’re out camping, hiking, or doing whatever else you do during the summer is no fun and can become a hindrance. And smelling like DEET - YUCK! We’ve got a solution to not only keep away those pesky, annoying bugs but also keep your skin soft, smooth and smelling wonderful. Dr. Doug’s Bug Potion is our Organic Original Miracle Balm with the added benefit of Lemongrass Essential Oil.
Lemongrass essential oil has been used to relieve muscle pain, kill bacteria, and ward off insects. The 100% organic ingredients provide a soothing moisture barrier in addition to calming the fires of cuts, cracks, and insect bites. Some benefits of Lemongrass Essential Oil include: anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant properties, acts as a pain reliever, helps relieve stress and anxiety, and can help relieve headaches & migraines. Ingredients featured in Dr. Doug’s Bug Potion include: Organic Beeswax, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Peppermint Oil, Organic Lavender Oil & Organic Lemongrass Oil.
