$8.00 $8.00

The Repeller bar soap is made using only essential oils. No fragrance, no color! Simple, yet so complex, this soap has a combination of Citronella, Lemon Eucalyptus, and Clary Sage essential oils.

LEMON EUCALYPTUS: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends lemon eucalyptus oil as an active ingredient in insect repellents. Lemon eucalyptus (Eucalyptus citriodora or Corymbia citriodora) is a type of eucalyptus tree. It has naturally high amounts of the compound citronellal, which repels bugs. The lemon eucalyptus distillation process also makes a compound called para-menthane-3,8-diol (PMD). This compound is the only plant-based repellent that the CDC recommends using in places that have mosquito-borne diseases like malaria.

CITRONELLA: Citronella (Cymobopogon nardus) is an ingredient in many repellents. This oil is also high in citronellal and geraniol, both of which repel bugs. Products that have the right amount of citronella can be as effective as DEET when properly combined with other essential oils.

CLARY SAGE: There have been a number of studies conducted on the health benefits of sage essential oil such as: Antimicrobial Activity In a study, clary sage essential oil was applied to Staphylococcus (bacteria that causes staph infection) cultivated from infected wounds. The results showed the oil has anti-staphylococcus properties that can treat a staph infection. Other studies have shown that sage essential oil is potentially effective against other diseases causing organisms such as, E. coli, Salmonella typhi, and Bacillus subtilis. Finally, this oil was tested against the SARS virus in vitro, however, in that case it was found to be only mildly effective.

*!!WARNING!! :  Some essential oils shouldn’t be used on children, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Generally, you should avoid using essential oil insect repellents on children under 2 years old. Don’t use lemon eucalyptus products on children under 3 years old.‌ *Resources (webmd): These resources were provided by WebMD, and are in no way an expression of the effects of these ingredients in soap.
