All-Natural Bug Off Giveaway



Although I haven't been writing as often as I usually do, I'm still active in my garden. With the house up for sale and shopping for a new place, it has been a bit overwhelming.

I still like to browse the Internet and look for herbal and organic products. I recently stumbled across SunFeather, a handcrafted natural soap company. I was thrilled when I noticed a new product, called Bug Off. Bug Off is an herbal bug deterrent, and believe me, I have been needing something to keep the mosquitoes away! It's made with all natural essential oils from citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, and geranium. I enjoy the fresh smell but the bugs don't!! Just a quick spritz and the mosquitoes didn't bite at all, and the flies refused to land! Best of it's all natural so it's DEET free!

Bug Off proved to be a life saver on something else, that I'm not sure the SunFeather Natural Soap Company planned on.
I got poison ivy for the first time in my life. I have been gardening for over 40 years and walking the woods of Michigan for longer than that. I always thought I must be immune -- not so. 10 days ago I had a small itch. I thought it was a mosquito bite, but soon it began to spread up my inner arm from my wrists to my elbows. I didn't have any Benadryl in the house, and was out of calamine lotion, so I grabbed the Bug Off thinking the rosemary might help. It was instant relief!! I carried that bottle with me everywhere. I later had to cave in and used some Benadryl lotion but I could only use that 3 times a day so in between times I spritzed away with my Bug Off! Aaaaahhh, it felt so good. Today for the first time I am not itching too badly.
I see that SunFeather also carries a Bug Bite Soother. That is going on my shopping list along with the Bug Off Soap. Soon I'll be moving north and into the Michigan woods. Bug Off is definitely going with me, and I'm keeping their web site on my favorites list.

GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!
What's the Prize?
The Bug Off! Outdoor Kit (pictured above) is a $25 value and includes Bug Off! Soap & Shampoo Bar, Bug Off! Spritzer, Bug Off! Bug Bite Soother and Bug Off! Bug Rub.

The ManCare hand balm might be just the thing that my husband is looking for. He is so sensitive to so many things and his hands chaff (even in the summer) this might be the perfect item for him.

The BugOff looks like it would help us on the nights when we are walking around our neighborhood.
