Last summer my girls and I traveled on a mission trip to Nicaragua. The Heat was intense which left us sweating all the time and a feasting ground for mosquitos. During the day we worked in the villages and covered ourselves with toxic deet filled bug spray. I cringed every time I put it on myself and even more so on my girls. One of my daughters has eczema and I knew it would cause her skin to flare. The people in charge told us to only use the deet sprays. In the evening we would return to our compound to shower and clean up for dinner. We quickly learned we HAD to keep bug spray on or we continued to be eaten up by them. We were so glad we had our Melaleuca bug spray it felt so nice on our skin and the scent was refreshing. I loved that we could go to bed at night without being covered in all those toxins. After the first evening it became a #1 request by the rest of our team to use our bug spray and by the end of the week the whole team (25 of us) would pass the bottle around at our circle time to cover our bodies in a “nice” big spray. Back at home it’s the only spray we use for mosquito repellent. As a side note It works great in conjunction with the gold bar as a extra barrier. So thankful for the non toxic products like bug spray that Melaleuca offers!
I always use the Natural Insect Repellent before working outside in the garden and I never get a bug bite. I’m amazed at how well it works.
Last week my husband and I attended the closing ceremonies for my son's Boy Scout Camp. We were outside all evening. I liberally sprayed myself with the Natural Insect Repellent. He did not. Neither of us got bites. As we sat down for the final ceremony, it was late evening and I again liberally sprayed myself with the Natural Insect Repellent, especially around my ankles as we were sitting on benches in the grass. My husband said he didn't want any because "there aren't any mosquitoes out". By the next day he discovered he had THIRTY-TWO chigger bites. He is still suffering this week from incredible itching. I didn't get a single one!! When we go outside next time, we'll see if he learned his lesson!
I have RH Negative O Blood Type. My entire life I have attracted mosquitoes to me. There can be a crowd of 10 people and I am the only one that gets bit by them. I swell up with large welts. This has been going on for over 40 years. This year I started using Melaleuca's Natural Insect Repellent. I have not received one mosquito bite. I cannot believe it. Besides not getting any bites, it smells great! I am so grateful to have found this product!!! I am no longer afraid to go outside during the summer months. Thank you Melaleuca!
Living in the Hawaiian Islands is paradise, but in some areas the mosquitoes do come out in full force at dusk... the Natural Insect Repellent really does the job... and it also keeps the flies from hovering around! I even spray it on my little dog Milo and it works for other pets and horses, too! Every product that Melaleuca makes works!
I love, notice I said I LOVE Melaleuca's Natural Insect Repellent. Somehow, we brought home something that contained the dreaded bed bugs. I tried Sol-U-Mel, but it didn't do much. I kept getting eaten and my husband escaped. So I tore the room apart spraying everything with the Natural Insect Repellent. (I ordered 6 bottles) I took apart every dresser and drawer, I tore apart our bed and sprayed all the parts to it. I even sprayed the walls and carpet. Then I let the room sit for a week unoccupied. We moved into the guest room. Then we came back to the bed and bedroom, and we haven't been bitten! Thank You Melaleuca. Your products go beyond our expectations!
We love our Melaleuca Natural Insect Repellent. I am a mosquito magnet but when I spritz myself down I don't get bit. Those little buggers are flying all around me but never land on me. Before Melaleuca came out with the insect repellent I would make my own using Sol-U-Mel and Melaleuca T36-C5. It worked just as well. I remember one summer we had family over for the 4th of July and while everyone was sitting outside I brought out my spray bottle squirting kids, chairs and the air with it. Everyone asked what that was that I was spraying and I told them my home-made insect spray. They were pleasantly surprised that it worked. Not one person got a single mosquito bite. I'm thankful to have a safer alternative to the toxic, skin irritating bug sprays that are offered at the local supermarket. Thank you Melaleuca!!
I was going to visit my daughter and her husband in Spain after my first grandchild was born, and being from the UK to be honest I was terrified of the possibility of getting eaten alive with mosquitoes! So before I left I mixed up some Melaleuca Natural Insect Repellent; 2 tablespoons Sweet Almond Oil, 9 drops Lavender Oil and 9 drops Orange Oil. When in Spain I made this a part of my daily routine, to apply the oil to my face, arms and legs every morning, and I didn't get any mosquito bites until the one day that I forgot it and in that one evening alone I got 9 bites!! I can tell you I didn't forget it again!! Thank you Melaleuca for these excellent natural products.
I use the Natural Insect Repellent on my dog's collar. When I take her outside to tie her out in the yard, I spray her nylon collar with the insect repellent first. She is out there for about 30 minutes or so and when I bring her back in; there are no signs of fleas or ticks on her. It beats buying chemical flea and tick collars that may harm her and saves money as well! Thanks Melaleuca for a great product!
