This kit contains one half-ounce bottle of each of the three Bug-Bouncer scents:
Garden blend contains the pure essential oils of citronella, lavender, lemon-eucalyptus, rosemary, and neem oil in a witch hazel base. The formula was created for personal protection during everyday outdoor activities. With a fresh, citrus scent, the blend is reminiscent of summer garden parties and backyard barbecues.
Park blend contains the pure essential oils of geranium, lavender, lemon-eucalyptus, rosemary, and neem oil in a witch hazel base. Designed for urban use and public places, it gives you personal-protection from Bug-Uglies insects without overwhelming those people around you. The blend has a light, floral scent that women seem to love.
Forest blend is an extra-strength concentration of the pure essential oils of citronella, geranium, lemon-eucalyptus, rosemary, and neem oil in a witch hazel base. This blend was designed for maximum personal protection when facing the Bug-Uglies insect pests on their own turf (while participating in activities such as camping, hiking, or fishing, etc…) or for those who are especially extra tasty to bugs. (you know who you are!)
Bug-Bouncer formulas safely repel more than 100 types of insects. They have been field-tested in all types of climates: beaches, jungles, deserts, mountains, rain forests, and backyards. All blends are effective against mosquitoes, and each has been designed with a pleasing scent that’s effective (but not overwhelming).
The convenient, portable, half-ounce size is practical for pocket or purse, while meeting Transportation Security Administration (TSA) carry-on requirements. Because the dropper releases only a few drops at a time, a bottle can last up to a year with normal use. And unlike with aerosol sprays, the chance of leakage is minimal. In short, Bug-Bouncer is effective, low-risk and chemical-free. No matter how nice it smells to humans, though, it tastes bad to bugs.
After sampling dozens of natural insect repellents, Bug-Bouncer is the one I recommend to friends and family. Because the essential oils are mixed with a small amount of carrier, you can safely apply the potent and effective blend directly to your skin. You only need to apply a few drops at a time, which means each bottle will last for years. I typically apply two or three drops to both my wrists and ankles before heading outside, and then I reapply each hour just to be safe. I keep one bottle in my medicine cabinet, one in my car, and one in my purse for impromptu summer hikes.
