It’s that time of the year! Weather is beautiful and nature is awakening from the long winter in the beautiful Hudson Valley. It’s one of the most amazing things to do in the Valley and Dino, I and our puppies Jack & Vicka are always hiking out there. One thing though, I am really scared of all those bugs, ticks and mosquitos that are just as plentiful in the woods as deer, squirrels and wild turkeys. Until we started DA Aromatherapy Brand we always had a dilemma - go hiking, explore and enjoy nature and spray unsafe chemical repellents onto our own skin and even worse - our puppies, or don’t spray chemicals and get bitten and suffer the consequences. Either way didn’t seem to be an acceptable solution for us. We were asking ourselves: What would be the best natural and chemical-free bug spray that repels insects and at the same time is safe for us and our dogs?
Another great aspect of our Woodland Trails™ Natural Essential Oil Bug Spray is the broad spectrum protection that you get not just from one (lemongrass) essential oil, but from the powerful blend of Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil, Organic Rosemary Essential Oil, Organic EucalyptusEssential Oil, Organic Clove Essential Oil, Organic Cedarwood Essential Oil and Organic Lavender Essential Oil.What is really great about this natural bug spray (besides that we are making it ourselves 🙂 is that we use grain distilled alcohol to naturally keep powerful insect repelling properties intact until you use the spray on your hike.
There are many alcohol-free bug sprays out there, but one of the important lessons we’ve learned from working with Essential Oils is that they are highly volatile natural products and when mixed with water they quickly oxidize and lose many of their fragrant and other beneficial properties, including the ability to repel ticks, mosquitos, and other bugs.This year we’ve got the answer and are looking forward to the hiking season and have already conquered Mount Beacon, Black Rock Forest and several other trails in the Hudson Valley area while being protected from bugs naturally and effectively all thanks to our signature DA Aromatherapy Essential Oils blend Woodland Trails™ with Organic Lemongrass, Organic Eucalyptus, and Organic Rosemary Essential Oils.
