Did you know that certain natural oils are shown to repel ticks? In studies supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, many natural plant-derived ingredients were found to be effective tick repellents. Among those supported in the studies are peppermint, thyme, eucalyptus, rosemary, and lemongrass essential oils.1 Lavender is also generally regarded as a great repellent for many kinds of insects.2
Most of these same oils are in our mosquito-repelling Bug Bands. The powerful essential oil capsules in these bracelets are packed with lemongrass, lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, silvery wormwood, and chamomile. Not only are they effective at repelling pesky mosquitoes and ticks, they smell great too, without noxious fumes or coughing fits that occur with traditional spray-can chemical repellents.
So how can these bracelets work on mosquitoes and ticks? Both and rely heavily on odors to guide them to their intended victims and are repelled by the same scents, so wearing our Bug Bands provides double-duty protection against both of summer’s worst pests.
For even more coverage, check out our Natural Insect Spray! This great-smelling spray also protects against both pests. It is the perfect size to take anywhere on the go!
