It is that time again for those pesky little buggers that ruin BBQ's, soccer games and any outdoor fun or event.  But did you know that using conventional bug sprays can cause lots of harm.

Most of the conventional bug sprays that you will find in stores are made with N,N-Diethyl-m-toluamide, or DEET. While this ingredient is effective for repelling mosquitoes and other bugs, there are at least eighteen known cases of children experiencing adverse neurological effects from DEET powered bug spray, according to the EPA. It is likely that there are many other, unreported cases as well.

All of the ingredients in Just Skin Food’s Mosquito-b-Gone lotion bar are MBGnon-toxic. Simple herbs such as organic catnip mint, organic eucalyptus, organic lemon balm and organic rosemary make up this nourishing and effective repellent product. Not only is the scent of our product lovely but it is also non-toxic and non-irritating.

Our Just Skin Food lotion bars, are designed to coat the skin with a protective layer that will nourish and moisturize the skin as an added layer of bug protection, thanks to ingredients like organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil infused with peppermint, catnip mint, eucalyptus, lavender, lemongrass, lemon balm, rosemary, shea butter, neem oil, and a special blend of essential oils.

Neem oil is also used for protection against ticks and it is par excellence to any deterrent to any sort of bugs. Your pets will also be protected if you use neem oil straight up  on their coats.

We have had many happy customers over the years who have been thrilled, here is just one of them:

“I visited Green Street Market and found a beautiful display of salves.

After reading about them all, I purchased several. One for my brother’s back pain, (Joint Relief Salve) the other for a friend’s psoriasis, (Psoriasis and Eczema Salve) the other for my husband’s splinters (Ouchy Grouchy) and one more for my fun summer night concerts with the mosquito (mosquito B- gone).

Each of these products did what is said it would do, and everyone was impressed! We are still using them today and will continue as needed.

-Christine Meehan

If you happen to forget your mosquito protection at home you can keep Just Skin Food’s Ouchy Grouchy Salve on hand. This product is an excellent first aid that brings relief to any skin inflammation and helps with all kinds of stings to stop itching and irritation. Many of our Organic Essential Oils can also be used as a repellent such as our Lemongrass oil and Geranium Rose oil, don't forget you must use a carrier oil with essential oils, never put essential oils directly on skin.  Essential Oils must be diluted with water in a spray bottle or in a carrier skin oil.
