This is it!
The one you have been looking for!
An all natural insect repellent that actually works!
Like.. it really works and works well.
LIQUID SWAT! is a complete distillate
of yarrow, with a bit of bee balm, lemon balm
and mint thrown in for fun and fragrance.
The U.S. Army did a study at Fort Bragg
(it’s a big ol swamp)
and found yarrow to more effective than DEET.
So I thought I would give it a whirl.
Yep. They were right.
It really, really repels insects.
Mosquitos, gnats, no-seeums..
What is a ‘complete distillate’?
And how does this differ from all of the other natural repellents?
A complete distillate is the liquid that is created when you
place herbs and pure water into an alembic/still and boil it.
The steam rises through glass tubes and is cooled by into a liquid
and I capture it.
It contains the volatile essential oils from the plant
as well as the phytonutrients released into the steam.
And LIQUID SWAT is different because it isn’t just
some essential oils added to a carrier and put in a bottle.
This is the very essence of the herb.. full strength as it is created.
Complete distillates are much more powerful and more ‘true’
than just an essential oil.
So.. it works a bit better.
Ok.. a whole lot better.
And it smells nice and if you spray it accidentally
(or on purpose like we do) into your mouth
it is not going to harm you as DEET would.
And I feel better spraying onto my skin
because I know it is natural.
I pick these herbs from my own
chemical free, sustainable herb beds
and put them immediately to work.
And remember.. because this is all natural
with no added oils, parabens or polymers,
it will not last during a heavy sweat.
You may need to reapply if you are
working in the garden or playing hard.
But a little goes a long way!
I love this stuff.
