This SPRAY version of Bug Defense is a blend of essential oils that is high in anti-microbial properties. The oils are highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-infectious and help to protect the body against such illnesses as flu, colds, sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, sore throats, cuts etc. "Bug" Defense is a "hot" blend. Dilute with a carrier oil such as Jojoba or Coconut and apply to parts of your body. Dilute adequately and test on a small area first to see if there is any reaction such as a skin irritation. Bug Defense is safest when applied to the bottom of the feet, as it may irritate other sensative skin. THIS IS NOT A BUG REPELLENT!!
