Oils

This salve is created with organic, virgin, and cold-pressed sweet almond and sunflower oils. Sweet Almond Oil is a powerful moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin, including baby skin. It works to reduce excess sebum, inflammation, scars, dryness, eczema, and acne. Sweet almond oil can also lighten skin tone, dark circles, and support an even complexion. Sunflower oil is great for both dry, irritated skin or oily, acne-prone skin alike. It is gentle, lightweight, and will not clog pores. It is also highly moisturizing and healing, high in Vitamin E and oleic acid (omega 9 fatty acid) that provide natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It easily absorbs into the skin to lock in moisture, soothe and soften skin.

    I purchased my second tin recently and needed leave a 2nd review after a full summer of use.
    As the summer came to an end in central NY, the the mosquitos were the worst they have been in a couple of years so this product was a staple at our Saturday bon fires.
    I shared with everyone and the response was exactly the same, hesitant at first that it would work then asking me where I got it by the end of the night.
    A little goes a long way but I will never enter a summer without a fresh tin on hand.
    Smells great and it defiantly works perfectly…no more holding your breath as you spray stinky aerosol chemicals!
    Feels so good to use a skin product that you can read and understand all the ingredients.
    Oh and it works just as good as an afterbite solution!

    I just received my bug balm yesterday. I was being eaten alive and this balm provided so much relief for the itchy bites. I am now looking forward to also using it to prevent the bites in the first place. Thank you so much for a great product.

    I’m a mosquito magnet AND I’m allergic to them, but this balm has saved me! I’m so glad I don’t have to smell like bug spray anymore. This smells great and a little goes a long way. I use it along with sunscreen, and they work great together!

    I’ve been using the Bug Off Balm for about a month now and love it. We live near a lake in North Texas and the mosquitoes are ridiculous. Not only does this repel the nasties but it actually helps soothe bites as well. Ya know, for those times you’re just trying to get from the garage to the car and didn’t think you’d need bug balm. Stupid mosquitoes. Plus, my kids don’t whine when I make them wear it!

    First off, it WORKS – and works well. But the other thing I really like about this is that it’s non-aerosol, and most of my kids’ summer camps require non-aerosol bug spray. This is super easy for them to put on and complies with those rules, while also being smaller than even the smallest pump spray bottle— easier to pack and doesn’t leak all over the inside of their backpack. I would recommend this for anyone to take on a hike or to stick in your travel bag because it’s so compact and leakproof. Being a balm also allows us to be more strategic about where we put it on OR make sure we’ve fully lathered every inch of exposed skin.

    GET YOURSELF TWO WHEN BACK IN STOCK! I used it today on my arms and chest on a long hike through some very buggy and mosquito-y mountains — no bites! I really wish I put some on my face because I got bit twice on my forehead ): now I know! It smells so good and refreshing, and is non-greasy — feels good knowing this is on my skin and not the other harmful bug sprays!

    Awesome stuff!!! After reading another person’s review about using this on her goats, we tried it in our horse for flies…checked her a few times throughout the day and NO flies in her poor little eyes!!! She also liked the smell and tried to lick it off my hands, which is not like her! Of course we love it too and the smell is amazing!

      That is great to hear Briana, we really appreciate the review and your support as well!

    Love this bug balm! I live in the swamps of Missouri on the Mississippi River and the mosquitoes are huge and relentless. The bug balm keeps them away as well as biting flies. I love the scent too. It’s not harsh like bug repellents that are full of chemicals and it doesn’t leave my skin dry.

    With all the rave reviews I was totally not surprised when it kept the mosquitos and the mites off me in the garden Awesome!
    However I found a fantastic new use: I keep milk goats and the deerflies have just been obnoxious this year, and of course you don’t want to put nasty chemicals on your goats, for fear it will wind up in the milk we drink. I applied some of the bug off to my girls, and it has kept them fly free for DAYS. It’s amazing and so nice to see them finally able to relax without being eaten alive! I’m going to have to order another tin to keep in the barn kit as a standard now.

      That’s amazing to hear Rebecca! We appreciate your support and enjoy!
