Insect Repellent Collection
With Spring upon us, the mosquitoes, flies, fleas, ticks, and other pestering insects are making their presence known. In fact, the National Pest Management Association has updated its Bug Barometer (Link) and their forecast is calling for an increase in mosquitoes, ants, ticks, and other insects across every region in the United States.
Because of this increased threat to our health due to illnesses caused by these insects (e.g. Lyme Disease, Powassan (POW), West Nile, and Zika Viruses, etc.), we at Simple Matters felt that it was important for us to create a non-toxic, all natural, and plant-based insect repellent that worked! We realized that different regions in the U.S. required that we tweak our formula to adjust for the more prevalent threats in that area. For that reason, we created our Insect-Away repellent for regions where flying insects such as mosquitoes, flies, and gnats were the primary nuisance and our Insect-Away Extreme version designed to target areas where in addition to these insects, ticks and fleas were a threat.
Finally, after several years of using other "Insect Bite Relievers" that were not only toxic to us and our children, but seemed to cause more pain and discomfort than it was worth, we knew there had to be a more natural and satisfying solution. After thorough research into the chemistry behind essential oils as well as real-world testing of dozens of recipes we put together, we finally came up with one that we feel meets all of our criteria for a safe and effective product. Bite-Away was created as a 100% natural and non-toxic bite and sting relief product that our own children use and love! We hope that you and yours will too.
