I love Tropical Traditions! All of their products are always amazing and I don't think I will ever try one that I don't like! Recently I got to try out the Tropical Traditions Organic Insect Repellent and I love it!
"Tropical Traditions all natural insect repellent is made from only the finest ingredients available, and is therefore completely safe for children and for application to the entire body including the face. We use no harmful chemicals or artificial fragrances. Our base, as with all our skin care products, is our very own Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. Natural coconut oil has been used to apply to the skin and ward off insects traditionally in tropical climates for hundreds of years. In addition, we have added pure organic essential oils known to repel insects, including citronella, lemongrass, peppermint, tansy, and catnip."
I just received it the other day and got to try it out today while Kyle and I were working on our garden. I instantly loved the smell of it. It was nice and natural and wasn't too strong. It is very thick which is good for coverage, but I did feel like I had to use a little more because of how thick it was. I think I am just used to the spray on repellents and they are so thin so it's hard not to immediately compare it to them. But the outcome was amazing! I did a little test and only put it on one leg and my arms. Well, let me tell you! My one leg had all sorts of bites all over it. It was crazy.
We spend a decent amount of time outside so I am always spraying the kids with what we normally use and they will still come in with bites on them and so will Kyle and I. This is the first time that I have not been bitten on specific areas of my body. I definitely agree that the Tropical Traditions Organic Insect Repellent works! But what I love more about it, is that it is natural and doesn't have any harsh chemicals in it so I can apply it to the kids without worrying about what it is doing to their skin. I can also use it on their face since it is safe for all over applications. It is nice to have something that actually works since our yard is filled with nasty little mosquitoes and green heads. I just wish that it came in a larger bottle since the only size 4oz. But, for only $8.50, I can afford to buy more (which I will definitely be doing)!
Tropical Traditions also carries organic food, cleaning products, other skin care products, pet products, and that is just the beginning! Make sure you stop over there to see all their great products! Don't miss out on the amazing recipes also!
