If you are here you know that wherever I can find effective natural products I will always use them for myself and my family over synthetic toxic ones. Bug spray and insect repellents are notoriously loaded with toxic synthetics including a pesticide you’ve definitely heard of – DEET. DEET is very effective at killing insects but even government agencies that promote its use suggest washing your body after using it and returning indoors. We also have been advised not to breathe it or spray near your face. All of these things suggest that it is maybe not ideal for human health and while we want to avoid being bitten by insects who can transmit diseases are we doing any better by using these harsh toxic chemicals?

The amazing news is that Doterra’s Terrashield is even more effective than DEET – it really keeps the bugs away and it’s completely safe and natural. It is the only insect repellent I will use for my family. One of the best things about it is that because it is oil based it lasts for a really long time without needing to keep re-applying it.
