Insect Repellent by Young Living

Insect Repellent

Young Living’s Insect Repellent is tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.

Here in Florida we joke that the state bird is the mosquito.  As you can imagine, insect repellent is a MUST and is used liberally during all of our summer activities.  Sporting events, outdoor concerts, BBQs, picnics, hiking, camping, kayaking…if it takes place outdoors, you’ll want insect repellent.  Since I need to use it so often, I was really looking for a more natural, toxin free solution without DEET or synthetic chemicals.  As always, I first look to Young Living and as usual, they have the perfect solution.

Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-greasy, non-sticky application.

So whether you’re spending time in the backyard or the backwoods, you can feel great knowing you have a pure, plant-based way to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Due to state regulations, this product is not available for purchase in every state.

10 uses for Purification® Essential Oil

 

PURIFICATION®

topical aromatic

Young Living’s Purification® blend is a clean and wonderful smelling essential oil that contains

  • Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus)
  • lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus)
  • rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
  • Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
  • lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida) and
  • myrtle (Myrtus communis).

I love love love to diffuse this because not only does it rid the room of odor, it just smells wonderful without being too heavy and flowery.

room freshener

I live in an apartment and smells easily take on a life of their own.  Every time I cook the smells linger for days.  But when I diffuse Purification®, within anmold-smell hour the room smells fresh and clean and you’d never know I spent the day slaving over a hot stove.   I do laundry on the weekends and this past weekend I opened up the washer to do a fresh load and found a very NOT fresh wet load sitting in the washer – where it had been since LAST weekend.  Yuck!  The clothes reeked of mold and mildew and I was dreading washing them over and over again to get rid of the smell.   But then I remembered I had oils!  I grabbed purification® and dropped a few drops in the wash and when the load was done I didn’t smell anything funky.  But I still ran it through one more time with more purification® just to sure.  blech!   Oh how I love these oils 🙂
