Safe and Effective Bug Bite Prevention and Treatment


The great outdoors - from playing in the backyard to backpacking through the backwoods - can also come with great quantities of bugs.  No one enjoys the buzzing and whining and subsequent biting and stinging.  These au naturel irritations can be avoided and treated, however, by the use of some of lavender's longest recorded properties as an insect repellant, antiseptic and topical anesthetic.

Here are our favorites for insect bite prevention and treatment.


Lavender Insect Repellant


Let's start with avoiding pesky bug bites altogether.  But how does one do that and avoid equally unpleasant commercial insect repellants that contain harsh chemicals, are unpleasant to smell, feel sticky on the skin or are harsh to sensitive skin?

A wonderfully effective and all-natural alternative is our Lavender Insect Repellant which contains no harsh chemicals and is effective at repelling mosquitoes, gnats, flies, fleas, etc.  Lavender has long been used as an insect repellant both on the body and in the home.  Pelindaba's organically certified lavender essential oil provides an effective insect repellant that is safe to use on sensitive skin, children and pets.  (Bonus - it smells wonderful!)

It is perfect for all outdoor activities - gardening, hiking, camping, walks on the beach, weddings, parties, concerts, etc.  Available in multiple sizes, pack it for travel and keep a large bottle at home for family-use.


Pelindaba's Lavender Insect Repellant travels far and wide around the world keeping bugs at bay in some of the buggiest places on earth... from Nepal, Hawaii and Africa to Mexico, Florida, California and beyond....  Where do you take your Lavender Insect Repellant?  Share your pictures with #worldwidelavender!



Lavender Treatment Stick


As much as we all try to avoid insect bites, they can still sometimes occur.  Thankfully, there is a way to quickly treat them when you are on-the-go hiking, biking, camping, having picnics in the park or taking trips to the beach.  Pelindaba's Lavender Treatment Stick is a must-have for soothing the minor cuts, abrasions, bug bites and burns of outdoor fun.  Lavender's naturally occurring antiseptic and topical anesthetic properties promote the healing of these skin irritations in an easily applicable stick form that even children can apply themselves.  Keep one with your camping gear and hiking backpack, as well as picnic basket and beach bag.



Fire Ant Bite Treatment


If you reside in an environment shared with little Fire Ants, you know the pain associated with their bites.  Fire Ants can bite simply by walking through your yard or at a playground or park leaving one with painful, burning blisters that can last multiple days.  If you have been unfortunate enough to be bitten, you know the desire for immediate relief from the pain and discomfort.  Pelindaba Lavender offers a Fire Ant Bite Treatment that uses the natural anesthetic and antiseptic properties of lavender to ease the inflammation and pain of these bites.  Pelindaba's natural formulation uses no harsh chemicals and is safe enough to use on the most sensitive skin.  The soothing properties of Pelindaba's Fire Ant Bite Treatment are a must if you live in an area prone to Fire Ants.  Just add a small bottle to picnic baskets, diaper bags, backpacks and purses for quick relief while on-the-go outside.


So, grab your lavender and head out to revel in the great outdoors!
