Good Stuff
I live in an older (20years old) house. The window seals are breaking down are in need of replacing, letting bugs in. Until we can get them replaced, I put a few drops of this oil in the tracks and along the thresholds of the doors. Does great at keeping bugs from wandering in!

Best bug repellent out there
This is my 3rd summer using BugOff and I swear by it. I put it in a spray bottle with water and spray it on myself & my kids and nothing comes near us. I also use the same bottle to spray bugs themselves, and bees in particular will die almost right away. It is a MUST HAVE if you hate bugs like I do.

is this safe during pregnancy?
A shopper on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we cannot recommend any oils to use during pregnancy. Essential oils are very beneficial for our bodies most of the time. However, pregnancy is a special time when customers need to be aware of some changing circumstances. We recommend that any pregnant or breastfeeding customers consult with a medical professional if they choose to use essential oils during this time.
