Unfortunately, it is that time of the year again when we all have to face the most annoying creatures on this planet- mosquitoes.
It is very likely that you are familiar with mosquitoes—those annoying buzzing creatures that you hastily swat off as they leave an itchy (and often painful) memory that they were present. The unfortunate fact is that mosquitoes may transfer diseases that are quite deadly to people such as dengue and malaria, making them more than simply a nuisance. In order to avoid being bitten by these tiny, dangerous pests, make absolutely sure you and your family are ready to defend yourselves prior to actually scheduling your next backyard picnic, pool party, or camping getaway.
You may think that you are protected from mosquitoes during the day, but there are some mosquitoes that only target their victims when the sun is out; so, you are never really safe unless you take the right precautions.
It is best to follow a strict routine when mosquito season is at its peak, ensuring that you stay protected everywhere you go.
It is almost impossible to stay protected from mosquito bites without applying a mosquito repellent. However, this doesn’t mean that you should spray your body with chemical-filled mosquito repellents. Although they may work in keeping mosquitoes away, the chemicals in such products can cause severe skin blisters and irritation, rashes, allergies, and even difficulty in breathing.
100% Wellness has formulated Bug Off Spray– the perfect all-natural repellent that is made to be a mosquito’s worst enemy. The main ingredient in this product is Citronella essential oil, which does the trick when it comes to keeping mosquitoes away. This blend is also known for its antiseptic, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, which not only prevent mosquito bites but also soothe and moisturize your skin, making it an absolute must-have product for those who are mosquito magnets. To use Bug Off Spray, simply pump the oil in your hands then apply evenly on exposed skin to protect from mosquito bites.
Using repellent can be seen as an investment that saves you from the high costs of malaria and dengue tests, not to mention the expenditure on treatment and the mental and physical stress one undergoes. Save yourself from all this and use our Bug Off Spray!
If you must be outside when the mosquitoes are most active, try to keep as much of your bare skin covered as you can. In the periods between dusk and dawn, ensure that you are wearing long sleeves, long pants, shoes, and socks. They can’t get to you if they can’t find you!
Standing water is a mosquito’s ideal place to reproduce; they lay their eggs in plants, garbage cans, drains, and everything else that gathers water, so always do routine inspections of your home and dry (or remove) anything that contains water. Also, ensure that windows and doors leading to the outdoors remain closed.
Regardless of taking all these measures, it is still common to see mosquitoes still roaming around in your house- and boy is that frustrating! But we have the solution to that. No one wants to be roaming around their own home, covered in mosquito repellent. Your home is the place you should be in your highest comfort levels, and we understand that. Our Diffuse Bug Off guarantees that you will be protected from mosquito bites, with no compromise on comfort. Featuring Citronella, Eucalyptus, and Peppermint essential oils, this diffuse blend does wonders by simply adding 8-10 drops of it in a diffuser with 100ml of water. Many have prized this blend for aiding in malaria and dengue prevention, and if you are looking for a bonus, this long-acting mosquito repellent has a refreshing scent that is a pleasant add-on to your room.
