Keeping the bugs at bay naturally

Keeping the bugs at bay naturally


With summer here we are all spending more and more time outdoors.  Indispensable for outdoor activities, summer evenings, picnics, camping, hiking or while in the garden, our Lavender Insect Repellant is a safe and gentle formula that takes advantage of lavender's long recognized insect repellant qualities.

Our natural Lavender Insect Repellant contains zero harmful chemicals, petroleum products, DEET or artificial fragrances.  Instead one experiences the pleasant aroma and natural insect repelling attributes of our farm-distilled, certified Organic Lavender Essential Oil and Organic Lavender Hydrosol during outdoor activities - camping, hiking, gardening, picnics, sporting events, etc.  While it helps to ward off mosquitoes, black flies, gnats and fleas it may also provide protection against ticks and mosquito borne illnesses like the Zika Virus.

The number one question we get from customers about our Lavender Insect Repellant is: “Does it really work?  It's one of the most reviewed products on our website.  Keep reading to find out about our customers’ experiences after using it.

Laurie from Santa Rosa California says: I love this product!  This is a great alternative for those people who want to avoid spraying chemical compounds all over themselves.  I've purchased it for my sister-in-law who is a cancer survivor and cannot tolerate non-natural products.  She swears by it, too!”  And Jan from Seattle also attests to its all-natural ingredients in her review: What a relief to know I am not using chemicals on my skin.  The idea of DEET being an ingredient in over the counter insect repellents bothered me.  It is nice to know there is a more natural alternative to keeping mosquitoes from chewing on me.  I am a magnet to these critters and appreciate this repellent very much.  Besides, I smell of lavender, not chemicals!”

In many reviews, customers appreciate that our all-natural formula is gentle enough to be used on young children and the elderly.  Jessica from Casper, WY shared this experience from a recent hiking trip: I used this on my 18 month old last summer and she didn't have a single bug bite while we were hiking, however I didn't think to spray it on myself and I was eaten alive...so it definitely works!”  Amanda from Friday Harbor, WA adds : “This is the best bug repellant out there!  I appreciate that there are no chemicals in it.  I can spray it on my skin and hair with no worry.  My friends with kinds also love it. It smells so much better than DEET or any of the other OFF equivalents.”

Pelindaba’s Lavender Insect Repellant has received many 5-star reviews from customers living in areas with high concentrations of mosquitoes.  For example, Brenda from Palmetto Florida wrote: “Throw your industrial insect repellant away right now and start using this product.  I was skeptical as I live on a canal in Florida and have constant problems with biting insects, but this stuff actually works better and is far more pleasant than the chemicals that you buy at the grocery store.  I liked it so much that I bought some for all of my neighbors!”
