This seems like a nice accompaniment to the after bite balm on this site. I'm definitely going to try this for camp. I worry about the strong chemicals in some sprays. I know its more necessary in tropical areas, but for our neck of the woods this should be perfect.

Wow, that name is just too funny. I love it! Commercial bug sprays make my physically ill. Bugs love me, so going out in the evening is very hard on me. I will have to try this out. I have never heard of Cajeput oil before. Where would a person find that?

I definitely want to try it to see if it will actually work. I have a lot of faith in natural remedies, but you never know sometimes.

I feel like no matter how much bug spray I put on myself, I always get bitten somewhere. Maybe this will help!
