Natural mosquito repellent
I was working on the computer at my desk at home when I realized that the weather was cool and gorgeous and that I’d be much happier outside on our patio, so I headed outside to our outdoors dining table. I wasn’t out here for long before my legs started getting chewed by mosquitoes and I headed in to get my natural repellent…Just Juniper cream.
No, I’m not a Just distributor. I just know how hard it is to find a natural repellent that actually works, so I wanted to share. This cream is sold to “relieve rheumatic and joint pain, while improving blood circulation. It is known to be refreshing and invigorating with anti-rheumatic, antispasmodic, calming, antiseptic, astringent and diuretic properties.”
Oh, and it’s also a great mosquito repellent. I need to write them about this. Could it be that they don’t know?
I first discovered this cream back when I lived in Tulum, Mexico, where the jungle was full of mosquitoes that had no mercy, and would bite and dash off with a speed that made swatting them nearly impossible. The juniper cream has a strong juniper perfume, which may be unpleasant to some, though I really like it. It’s made with natural essential juniper oil.
The only thing I couldn’t find on their site was a statement that they do not do animal testing, which is a bummer.
Anyone out there know of a natural mosquito repellent that really works and is not tested on animals?
