There are many different insect repellents "out there." Beautyberry, known to have natural insect repellent qualities, forms the basis of this spray. I also added citronella and lemongrass. And then I discovered Catnip! Catnip helps the efficacy of this blend by staying on the skin longer for lasting action.
I made this blend for a 4th of July party held at the water's edge in Florida - it doesn't get more "buggy" than that. I used it with 21 people, and no one got bit! Thus, this powerful and effective insect repellant was born!
