Safe (natural) and effective way to rid yoursef of pesky bugs!

I received the Organic Eucalyptus Summer Spray from Shoosha for free (#gotitfree) from PeopleTail in exchange for an honest review. I was very eager to try this organic spray, seeing as I have been on the hunt for a good bug repellent for some time now. I have tried everything out there on the market - and all of the products smell awful, leave marks on my clothes, or simply do not do the job they were meant to do. They are both a waste of my time and my money. We have a cottage near a heavily wooded area, which means mosquitos are around ALL day! Not just mosquitos, but sandflies as well. Any time you want to enjoy the peaceful and serene environment outdoors, you will be met with an army of these guys! They are teeny, but their bites sure are mighty! It ruins the entirre experience - makes you want to hole up and spend all your time indoors! This is the first product of its type that I have had a whole-heartedly positive experience with. With this spray, I was able to go outside without any worry about being bitten, tarnishing my clothes, or smelling awful!

Shoosha is the first complete USDA certified skin care line in North America. This spray product has the seal to prove it. There are many different brands out there that claim to be completely organic, where that actually is not the case. Shoosha is 100% certified organic, pure and true to its name - this is a brand that is trusted by parents and recommended by doctors. These nourishing ingredients are safe enough to be used on baby's sensitive skin. This spray is made up of several certified organic essential oils, which include: soybean oil, lemon eucalyptus oil, lemongrass oil, cedarwood oil, peppermint oil, and rose geranium oil. There are absolutely no petrochemicals or synthetic ingredients in this formula. This is one of the main reasons why organic ingredients are so important to me. I like to know what I am applying to my body. These ingredients will be absorbed into your skin, and can have serious effects on your health. Think about it. Would you prefer applying a product to your skin that is made up of natural, gentle ingredients, OR would you choose one labeled with harsh synthetic ingredients that can do you more harm than good? This spray is both safe and effective - for the entire family to enjoy and benefit from. This spray is made in Canada. It is vegan, hypoallergenic, has no synthetic fragrance, and is free from: BPA, chemicals, dairy, gluten, GMOs, and nuts.

It is so easy to apply, anyone can do it - although, it is recommended that an adult is around to supervise if a child is going to be applying the spray onto themselves. This spray can be applied directly onto skin (after lightly shaking bottle) - I tend to lather it through to spread it a bit with my hands. A little bit of this product goes a long way! It is important to remember that you should avoid spraying this product directly onto your face, as you want to protect your eyes. I applied some onto my palms, and then worked it upon my face - safer method/precaution. It does wonders for the skin - not only does it protect you from all of the pesky flies, but it also moisturizes your skin as it is doing so. If you experience any dry skin, this product can do wonders to help you out. I did not realize this little fact until afterward. I normally have very dry knees, and I noticed that they appeared more nourished than the previous few days. This was the only product I had been applying that weekend, so I knew that there had to be a reason! Alternatively, you can also use this spray to freshen up your home - your bed, linens, curtains and any cloth material. I have used this to freshen up my pillows, my couch, my bed, and my armchairs. A little spay goes a long way in the home, so I don't go too crazy! The scent is really strong and it lingers - that is how you know it is getting the job done. Everything smells wonderful - so fresh! The scent lasts up to three hours, and you can reapply as needed. I love how unique and versatile this product is. It can be used in the hot, sticky summer months to not only refresh and hydrate your skin, but it will also repel bugs away. Throughout the remainder of the year, you can use it to freshen up any room/space that needs some sprucing up.

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone seeking out a 100% natural "summer" spray. I believe that everyone should have this product on hand, because you never know when you might find yourself needing it. It is not just a perfect product to have with you in the summer, but it is something that you can use throughout the entire year - it is extremely versatile! From bug repellent to room spray to moisturizer.. this spray does it all!
