Specialty Soaps

bug_repellent_soapCamping Mosquito Soap the year that the CDC came out with a press release stating the lemon eucalyptus oil was a good, natural alternative to Deet, we couldn’t keep the Mosquito soap in stock. Ever since then, we’ve used that press release as a selling point. All the essential oils in this soap and present because they have a tendency to repell different types of bugs. Anyone who grows lavender knows that you never need to used pesticides on it because bugs naturally stay away from it. Citronella has always been known to keep nasty little bugs away. The Cedarwood oil in the soap, reminds us of how pet bedding is usually filled with cedar chips in order to deter fleas.However, the best testimonial for the Mosquito soap comes directly from our customers. We’ve been making this soap for over six years and anyone who has tried it comes back every summer to stock up on it. Mothers often buy it for their children for playing out in the yard. We go camping a few times a year and I can personally say that whenever I bath in the Mosquito soap, I never have a problem with getting a mosquito bite or a tick on me. When camping, we even wash our hair in it.
