It is suspected that people are born with a genetic predisposition to attract mosquitoes and it is also suspected that pregnancy makes it even worse (for anyone) because of the excess carbon dioxide that is released by the body. So, having BOTH I was quite attacked on Monday. I was in shock, because I hadn't seen them at all before this night.
Well, you can rest assured that I will not be going to the garden without my handy dandy TerraShield ever again! Its the cheapest of all the oils/blends that doTERRA sells. Only $9.50 (wholesale)!!! I am stocking up.
***Remember to choose a glass spray bottle (2 oz bottles available at www.AromaTools.com for only $0.85 each) so that the oils don't eat away at the plastic. The plastic pieces attached the the bottles at AromaTools are a high enough grade of plastic that the oils do not eat away at them.
Have you already been bit? Try using Melaleuca and/or Lavender OR Purify to clear those bites up. I love using my blend of Melaleuca and Oregano (30 drops Melaleuca, 10 drop Oregano in a 5ml bottle and then finish filling with coconut oil), because apparently I need some heavy duty stuff when I get bit, haha.
