Organic Mosquito Nix Spray

Living in Florida (or Alaska) is no picnic when mosquitos are around. Most products on the market use DEET o other toxic repellents. Our Mosquito Nix formula contains no DEET or chemicals, only natural essential oils safe for the whole family and for pets. The formula includes citronella, camphor, eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender, niouli (maleleucca, Florida species) Ylang-ylang and a host of other beneficial oils. It can be sprayed on clothes or skin (or fur); a side benefit is that it actually smells good.
The clinical study 'Mosquito repellent activity of essential oils or aromatic plants growing in Argentina.'
'Mosquitoes are important vectors of diseases and nuisance pests. Repellents minimize contact with mosquitoes. Repellents based on essential oils (EO) are being developed as an alternative to DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-methylbenzamide), an effective compound that has disadvantages including toxic reactions, and damage to plastic and synthetic fabric. This work evaluated the repellency against Aedes aegypti of EO from aromatic plants that grow in Argentina: Acantholippia seriphioides, Achyrocline satureioides, Aloysia citriodora, Anemia tomentosa, Baccharis spartioides, Chenopodium ambrosioides, Eucalyptus saligna, Hyptis mutabilis, Minthostachys mollis, Rosmarinus officinalis, Tagetes minuta and Tagetes pusilla. Most EO were effective.' (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17583499)
