Introducing Repel Synergy Blend

Introducing Repel Synergy Blend

It’s always a joy meeting outdoor-loving folks while camping, hiking, sunbathing on the beach or picnicking at the park. Unless they’re bugs. Unfortunately, insects love hanging out with people more than we appreciate their company. To all of you bugs out there, be gone! If asking isn’t enough, EG has just the thing.

Repel synergy blend is a protective combination of Ylang Ylang, Nootka Tree, Cedarwood, Catnip, Lemon Eucalyptus, Litsea, Arborvitae and Vanilla. Unlike over the counter bug sprays, Repel has an earthy aroma that people will love but bugs will find unbearable. Stay protected from unwelcome insects with Repel synergy blend.

THIS OR THAT: REPEL VS PEST DEFY

Repel and Pest Defy were both created to ban bugs, so how does one decide between these two protective blends? Pest Defy is a simple blend with classic bug repelling EOs like Citronella. EG has remained bug free on our outdoor adventures over the years with Pest Defy. Repel was formulated with new oils to Edens Garden, such as Nootka Tree and Catnip. We added Catnip as it has been found to be one of the most effective essential oils in repelling bugs naturally. Nepetalactone, a major constituent of Catnip, is currently trying to be produced synthetically by chemists as a replacement for DEET in many commercial bug sprays.

At EG, we understand everyone is different which is why we’ve formulated multiple blends that target the same issue. No matter which one you choose, both Repel and Pest Defy will defend against insects, making your outdoor experience a great one.

Hi Angelica! Pest Defy can be diffused to repel insects from the premises, or applied topically to keep insects from attacking you. We generally recommend applying topically, after diluting.

What are the best ways to use pest defy? Can I diffuse it or can apply it topically? I purchased hoping it would help with fleas and mosquitoes.

Hi Susan! Repel is intended for biting insects such as mosquitos and gnats, so we can’t be sure this will work with other types of insects but you might try it.

Looking for something around the outside of my house to prevent bugs and spiders getting in. Should I use this? I also heard peppermint.

I was wondering if this would work on bedbugs? If not, what would you recommend?

Hi Brigid! In our experience, biting insects stay away with Repel, but we’re not sure how it will work against spiders and other such insects.

Will either of these work for wasps, gnats, spiders and other bugs and crawling and flying and ‘bitey’ and ‘stingy’ creatures?

Polite society insists I leave my house. To be an active member of society, I oblige, despite the fact that it’s hot and things in the air I breathe, and the ground I walk want to eat me.

I am a mosquito magnet. I wasn’t sure which would work better, this repellent or Repel so I bought both. First time using Pest Defy I was bitten within minutes of using it. The next time I was outside in the same place I used Repel. When a mosquito was circling me I put my wrist, which had Repel on it, right up to the mosquito. He came close to it, then shot off in the opposite direction. No joke. Ever since then I have only used Repel and have not gotten one bite. My daughter has three friends who went camping in the woods and brought Repel as their mosquito repellent, they did not get bit and were very impressed with it!

Hi Tanya, we don’t recommend Pest Defy or Repel for kids under 10 years old. However, our Shoo Fly OK For Kids blend is safe for kids 2+.

May I used Pest Defy or Repel on kids? Our children are 2, 9, and 11.

Hi Jenny! We actually carried this oil and since discontinued it due to its unpopularity. We may carry it again in the future.

I am wondering if Edens Garden is considering in the near future getting a single oil of Arborvitae? I’ve heard it’s great as a anti-viral oil. Maybe you can confirm. Thank you!

Hi Tara! An easy spray recipe would be 2 oz distilled water, 2 tsp grain alcohol, 40 drops Repel. Shake and spray.

Hi Janice! Repel is a great blend to try. Also our Catnip essential oil and Pesty Defy synergy blend.

Tara

How would you utilize these as a spray? Just adding EO to water doesn’t seem like it would be effective? Is there something else I’d need to add to the spray bottle, and if so what amounts?

Janice

I live and work on an island in the Caribbean. Mosquitoes are abundant – and some carry malaria. The only spray I find that is effective is one with DEET. Are any of your products effective against mosquito bites? Thank you.

Hi Martha! Vinegar would not dilute essential oils, and we don’t recommend using EOs on animals unless under the supervision of a vet or animal aromatherapist.

Can I dilute these with organic apple cider vinegar and use as a dog spay to repel fleas and ticks?

I have always heard that mice do not like peppermint and it seems to work in my experience. Just be sure to refresh often, whether you spray or put it on a cotton ball in a small glass/ceramic dish. Since oils can mar some finishes or stain clothing use with caution.

Hi Maile! Repel is best diluted and applied topically. We have a prediluted Repel roll-on which is ready to use, or you can dilute it to 3% in a carrier oil -

3% = 18 drops Repel in 2 Tbsp of carrier oil

Aloha. So do you dab it on yourself or use a diffuser?
Thank you,

Hi Denise! We have not tested this blend out on mice, so we can’t be sure.
