Hope you all had a great weekend and were able to get outside.
I discovered BugBand insect repellent at the Outdoor Retailer Show a few weeks ago. I was intrigued to learn all about the brand since over the summer people have been asking about natural bug repellents and I have been on the search myself.
This BugBand insect repellent is made with Geraniol.
Yeah, I was wondering what Geraniol was, too.
“…Geraniol, a powerful ingredient extracted from geranium oil through a unique refining process, does indeed provide a natural – and extremely effective – insect repellent. According to laboratory and field studies by the University of Florida in Gainesville, Geraniol, the active ingredient in BugBand insect repellent, has been proven effective in repelling a wide variety of insects, including mosquitoes, house flies, stable flies, horn flies, cockroaches, fire ants, fleas, gnats, dog ticks, lone star ticks, and no-see-ums.”
How about that?!
BugBand insect repellent comes in sprays, towelettes, diffusers, wristbrands, bed bags and other products. I like the idea that the wristbands don’t have to actually be worn, making them perfect for infants. Clip one to a backpack carrier or front carrier or attach it to a belt loop and your infant will be protected.
BugBand insect repellent is DEET FREE and can also be used on pets.
I am always skeptical of new products and technology but when the founder of Mountain Mama shared her experience with BugBand and was stalking up again for an international trip I knew it had to be good. I certainly trust her opinion.
Luckily, we don’t have many pests around Moab right now but I know that time will come. Considering I am a feast for mosquitoes I look forward to warding them off NATURALLY with BugBand.
Even though I have not had the opportunity to try out BugBand, yet, I wanted to give one lucky winner the opportunity to get their hands on some products.
1 ~ family pack of 5 wrist bands
2 ~ 3 oz. spray bottles
1 ~ 15 count of towelettes
