Let Bug Guard bring the natural protection of catnip, eucalyptus, citronella and six additional oils to your skin. This undiluted blend of oils is completely safe and nontoxic for you and your dogs.

Aroma: fresh, camphoraceous, spicy, lemon

INGREDIENTS

Eucalyptus citriodora (Eucalyptus) Oil,  Cymbopogon nardus (Citronella) Oil, Eugenia caryophyllata (Clove Bud) Oil, Nepeta cataria (Catnip) Oil, Juniperus virginiana (Cedarwood) Oil, Pogostemom cablin (Patchouli ) Oil, Nardostachys jatamansi (Spikenard) Oil, Cymbopogon citratus (Lemongrass) and Bursera graveolens (Palo Santo ) Oil

Eucalyptus citriodora has a distinct lemon fragrance that you’ll find fragrant but will repel bugs. It’s also been shown to work against fungus and the herpes virus. The oil is a potent anti-inflammatory that is said to encourage emotional healing and strength.

Citronella essential oil is a strong natural insect repellent made from tall grasses. The fresh-scented oil also has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties and is used to combat bacteria, fungus, and viruses.

The essential oil of clove bud is a great oil for repelling insects, including mosquitos, and is used in many commercial insect repellents. It’s strong odor even throws ants off the scent of the food trail! It also offers warming effects, reduces pain, and is strengthening for the body overall. Clove bud is antiseptic, exhibiting broad antimicrobial activity, because of the high proportion of eugenol. It is very anti-spasmodic and anesthetic.

Catnip isn’t just a lure for cats—its oil repels a variety of insects, such as mosquitos, black flies, fleas, bees, and ticks. It also calms the body, reducing nervous tension and allowing you to rest.

Virginia cedarwood, or red cedar, has a pungent, woodsy aroma that makes mosquitos and other bugs keep their distance. The oil also relieves stress and instills confidence. And as a natural decongestant and helps to fight infection, urinary tract infections, and eczema. By increasing localized blood circulation it can help lessen joint pain.

Patchouli is a great insect repellant. But it also has strong antifungal and antibacterial properties that work to bring healing relief to eczema, psoriasis, fungus, or sores. The aroma calms you and reduces anxiety.

The complex exotic and woodsy aroma of spikenard is said to repel fleas and other insects. As an anti-inflammatory it can help calm skin irritations and itchiness. Spikenard is also recommended to calm the body and mind, bringing a deep sense of peace. And its antispasmodic properties make it an effective oil for relief of cramping.

Lemongrass has a citronella component that makes it an effective bug repellent It is also used extensively to aid in healing of sports injuries because it promotes tissue healing. Its bright, uplifting aroma energizes you (but not the bug population).

Palo santo is thought to clear the air from negative energies (and, in this blend, from annoying bugs). A sedative, palo santo quiets frantic mental activity so you can rest or meditate.

HOW TO USE

  • Bug Guard is a wonderful blend to use in a diffuser. How many times have you been outside, trying to relax, only to have the time ruined by pesky, biting bugs? Say no more to these annoying bugs by diffusing Bug Guard outdoors. I recommend diffusing 15 minutes during every 2 hour period. But what if you don’t have an electrical outlet outside? Try soaking a strip of paper or rag in Bug Guard and hang, or add a few drops of Bug Guard to cotton balls and place around the area.
  • Try taking a small rag or sponge, soak it with Bug Guard, and then leave it in a small container like a glass jar. When you want to drive away mosquitoes, horse flies, and other annoying summer pests, you simply open the jar and place it near you to keep them away. This is a great way to use on camping trips.
  • To keep insects and other creepy-crawlies out of your home or any other buildings, soak Bug Guard onto a strip of paper and hung in a window. You can also put a few drops on a cotton ball and place where you know the insects are entering your home. Try putting the cotton balls in your drawers.
  • Make a natural bug repellent spray by simply adding Bug Guard to a water base. Use two teaspoons of pure grain alcohol to 4 tablespoons of water with 5 drops of Bug Guard.
  • You may also add in several drops of Bug Guard to some distilled water as well. (This is what I prefer to do). Place it in a glass or pet plastic spray bottle; and shake and spray away! The 1 or 2 ounce spray bottles are perfect for personal use!
    Recipe dilution: add 10-20 drops of Bug Guard to 1 ounce of water. Spray clothing and bedding (including the mosquito netting of your tent, if you’re camping).
  • Try adding Bug Guard to shampoos, conditioners, sunscreens, lotions and liquid soaps.
  • Just add a few drops to a handful of shampoo or conditioner when you’re showering. Recipe dilution: add 10-20 drops of Bug Guard to 1 oz. of carrier (shampoo, conditioner, oil, lotion etc.)

Directions for your Dog

Fleas and ticks are irritating and can also be unhealthy for your pet. Unfortunately, so are many pesticides used to repel them. Chemicals in over-the-counter flea and tick repellents can cause skin irritation, hair loss, kidney damage, or even death. Essential oils distilled from plants are a natural and safe way to keep pests at bay.

Warning

  • Essential oils should never be used on cats!
  • Do not use Bug Guard on your dog before reading the directions below!
  • Always ask your veterinarian before using essential oils on your dog.
  • Never use essential oils undiluted on your dog.

Make a Spritzer to use on your dog
In a spray bottle add 5-6 drops of Bug Guard to 1 ounce of water the smaller your dog is use less Bug Guard per ounce of water. Once you have your spritzer, you can use this by gently spraying it onto your dog’s coat, legs, tummy and back. Rub it in well and apply it as necessary. Do not use any of the essential oils on your dogs face or around nose, ears and eyes. Respect the sensitive nose he/she has and go easy when using aromatic substances such as essential oils.

Collar Repellent
Add a few drops of the Bug Guard to your dog’s collar. The scent should last several days, but you will need to reapply the oil when it fades.

MORE INFO

These blended single note oils are highly concentrated—you will get many applications from just one bottle!

Our master blender Deb Stoltzfus crafts all of our blends using only pure essential oils (with no base carrier oil). Each product contains various single notes mixed together, with each oil working in synergy with the others to create a powerful blend.

Inshanti oil blends can be diffused in the air to help with emotional issues, such as depression, stress, anxiety, mental fatigue, lethargy, and lack of motivation, and for medicinal issues such as congestion, colds, and the elimination of airborne viruses and germs. These oils are “neat,” meaning not blended with any carrier oil, so they are potent undiluted oils.

Inshanti’s range of antiviral essential oils and blends are a smart and safe way to care for your family’s health, including babies and children. They contain powerful anti-infectious properties, relieve pain, strengthen your immune system, and can reduce anxiety and stress. These oils contain many life-enhancing benefits.

Time and again, Deb Stoltzfus has experienced and heard testimony of the amazing benefits of these protecting and healing essential oils. They can be used for colds, flu, respiratory infections, etc. There are antiviral essential oils and blends that target herpes, Epstein Barr, bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections, and more.

It is almost impossible to avoid being exposed to infectious disease. Work, school, or just going to the grocery store exposes you and your family to infectious microbes. Unfortunately, it is too easy to bring these pathogens home. That is why it is important to keep your family’s immune system as strong as possible. The good news is that the antiviral essential oils kill viruses and strengthen all of your body’s defenses, including your immune and respiratory system.

Please note— these oils are not just for diffusing units. Each can be used for many other things. When diluted with a carrier (such as jojoba or any vegetable oil), the oils can be:

  • Added to your washer or dishwasher
  • Massaged into the bottom of your feet (the bottom of the feet is a highly effective, and also the safest, place to apply oils); you can also massage diluted oil into other areas of your body
  • Sprinkled onto your bed sheets
  • Used for cleaning, and so much more

Contraindications:

  • For aromatic or topical use (when diluted).
  • Diffuse for short periods of time in the work or home environment. We recommend diffusing 15 minutes during every 2-hour period.
