Technology Guy ~ Retreat Participant
OK, picture this! A trip to the Margaret Austin Center … a rural retreat center in the rolling hills outside Chappell Hill, Texas (between Austin and Houston on US-290) aka MOSQUITO CENTRAL. I have serious reactions to mosquito bites. I gag at the scent of citronella (I’d rather change diapers!). So what can I use? Lavender- or Cedar- or Peppermint-based sprays (scoff!)? I was told the clip-on repellent was good and didn’t smell (yes, it does). I tried MANY of the offerings at the natural food stores and herb shops ~ not good enough, still got bites. Ran into Elly Fleegal at Pecan Street Festival, and saw this product. I’ve been a super-fan of her soaps for years. Frankly, I didn’t believe it would work, but it smelled nice, and I’d tried so many others. Y’ALL! IT WORKS! I took a 4 oz. bottle with me, and shared with others with similar issues. I still had over half a bottle left. One tip … don’t skimp! If you don’t use enough detergent, your clothes don’t get clean … if you don’t use enough bug repellent, the bugs break through (no-brainer).
