Healin' Hollers Summer's Scent Insect Repellent - Summer's insects used to be met with chemically-laden insect repellents. Now it's the more natural scent of Citronella, Eucalyptus, and Pennyroyal. These three essential oils are a great defense against mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, and other biting, stinging, bloodsucking critters.
Mountain Mint, renowned for its insect repelling qualities, grows in profusion here in the Ozarks. We sun-distill this mint in the Sweet Almond Oil before adding the essential oils. The oil provides an effective barrier as the ticks, chiggers, and other crawling insects have a difficult time penetrating the oil.
Summer's Scent is a pleasant smelling oil that not only repels and protects against insects, but also moisturizes and tones your skin.
