essential insect repellent
Tamarinda essential insect repellent - using the power rosemary and peppermint to defeat bugs
8 fl oz (240 ml)
no one likes biting bugs, but be aware of what is in the repellent you buy
DEET (aka N-diethyl-meta-toluaminde) is the active ingredient in our most familiar insect repellents and can make up 22-28% of the product by weight. look deeper and find that the health hazard rating for DEET is "Moderate" and the exposure limit/toxicity has not been established. No thank you.
But there is good news. A safer, non-toxic alternative to commercial sprays are offered by nature - essential oils come to the rescue again!
Tamarinda's essential insect repellent features rosemary & peppermint essential oils - both highly effective repellents. And, rosemary is an outstanding skin oil and there is nothing like peppermint to enliven the spirit.
We can't think of a better combination.
