Skeeterbeater Insect Repellent and Anti-Itch Spray
Skeeterbeater Insect Repellent and Anti-Itch Spray is a safe, natural, and effective spray for control of many biting insects. It is also quick itch relief due to bites, sunburn, or mild rash. Made with cooling aloe Vera gel, wild-crafted plantain, organically farmed flowers, flower extracts, and pure essential oils. This product is waterproof for up to 3 hours.
Please note that in very thick woods, the tropics, or in areas with aggressive insects, a repellent containing Picaridin or Pyrethrum may be more efficient. However, in the typical backyard, community picnic, and beach areas this is an excellent alternative to the heavy-handed insect repellents which contain dangerous chemicals.
How to Use:
To deter insects from biting, spray directly onto clothing, and skin; however, avoid eyes, and mouth. Shake vigorously before each use. Spray before exposure to bugs, and flying insects. This product will require a thorough shaking before each use because we do not use harsh chemicals to hold the formula in a constant state.
Spray directly onto bite to calm the sting, if you do get a bitten, shake and then spray to ease the itch, wait one minute and spray again. Avoid touching the spot. Continue to spray the area once every 2 minutes after that. The “itchy's” will diminish within four or five minutes. Discontinue spraying as soon as comfort returns.

While I have not had the opportunity to try it against Mosquitos, I did get stung by a bee on my face. After receiving this, I sprayed it on the bee sting and it immediately felt better. The hurt went away, and the swelling started going down right away also. I addition, I used it on sun burn and it was so soothing. Better than anything else I have used.

I will be using this all spring and summer, and I think it smells and feels really nice. Great alternative to the dangerous insect repellent sprays out there

This stuff really works! I use it regularly on myself and my 3 year old and it has kept us "itch free." Highly recommend if you would like an alternative to spraying your children down with deet.
