Well good news!

My all natural repellant worked EXTREMELY well this weekend. Mosquitoes were EVERYWHERE and I only got nabbed once behind my knee and that was because I forgot to put a bit back there. They will definitely hunt down a spot that is not covered. Sure it smelled a little strong (nice but strong) but it worked. All without DEET! Very pleased.


I will definately try to find that stuff locally. I like the list of ingrediants. Thanks for the update of your personal use. Wearing shorts is dangerous :o Or do you wear a kilt?

I wear shorts. I've heard kilts are the stuff but I just can't go quite that "free". LOL!

Does it attract hippies? :shock:

Just the opposite. LOL! It's nice smelling but strong. Be prepared for friends to remark at that. LOL!

More than likely the patchouli oil overpowers everything else..I've passed a couple people on the trail that had a strong scent of that..probably wearing your mosquito repellant..rather than them just being hippies!Next time you are in a head shop :roll: ..buy some of that!It''ll probably keep bugs away by itself. ;)

Well all I know is that it worked. And that is the test of bug spray. :DB: :DB:
