About TerraShield®: Insect Repellent Blend
TerraShield®: Insect Repellent Blend combines a proprietary blend of highly effective and safe essential oils, in a base of fractionated coconut oil, to help ward off insects. A primary function of essential oils in plants is protecting against insects and other predators. But, unlike other products, that contain synthetic and toxic chemicals, TerraShield® is a natural approach to managing exposure to biting insects.
TerraShield® is an all-natural formula of citronella (Cymbopogon nardus) (1.5%) and cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) (1.5%), and a blend of 11 other therapeutic-grade essential oils, blended in a base of pure fractionated coconut oil. These include Skimmia laureola, catnip (Nepeta cataria), amyris (Amyris balsamifera), African sandalwood (Brachyleana hutchinsii), Cabrueva balsam (Myrocarpus fastigiatus), wild orange (Citrus sinensis), white fir (Abies alba), eucalyptus (E. radiata), Hawaiian sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum), genet (Spartium junceum) and rose (Rosa damascena) oils. These oils have been scientifically shown to repel insects more effectively than other insect repellents.
TerraShield® also smells great, with a fresh, light, citrusy scent, and is wonderfully invigorating. It goes on smoothly and is absorbed quickly.
The first time I tried TerraShield®, I was really impressed with its effectiveness. I was working outside on a hot, muggy summer evening — during prime bug-feeding time. The work was heavy, and I had gotten very sweaty and sticky. This would normally have been a bug magnet. However, wearing the TerraShield®, I could work essentially inside a swarm of the gnats and not get bitten. During a break in the work, I watched as the gnats would approach me, get within a couple of inches and turn around. I'd never seen anything quite like it.
"I recently purchased two bottles of [TerraShield®] the 'Repellent Blend', and wanted you to know that, in 9 days, I have not been bitten once. This is pretty amazing, as we live on the river in Jacksonville, Florida and, until last week, we would use at least a gallon of (various) repellents a week; most of which didn't work!
"This [is an] awesome product."
