Holy hell its HOT!!! I've lived in a few different climates and I think humid hot is the hottest hot out there. In dry hot climates, like Colorado, when one steps in the shade, one does feel a bit cooler; however, in humid hot... you can't escape the sweltering heat! Despite the rising temperatures, Moe (the other half of Team Simmons) and I still have to mow (get it Moe mows our yard- ha ha ha ok I'm easily amused) our yard, and this is a 3 hour weekly ordeal involving 3 different types of mowers. In preparation for the yard mowing ordeal, we both have to spray down with lots of bug spray so that we aren't eaten alive my mosquitos, ticks, flys and whatever else we have here in Virginia. Up until this point, I've been using conventional bug sprays because NOTHING natural works.... until I experimented with this kick ass bug spray!
I'm in the midst of completing my herbal medicine making course and have access to a private online community where we kick around different herbal formulas for various ailments. Thanks to this group of herbal rockstars, I was able to put together a DIY bug spray that will withstand profuse sweating, 3 hours of mowing and still keep the critters off me (oh and the significant other also)!!
Before using this spray, make sure you aren't allergic to any of the ingredients and a good way to test is on a small patch of skin before spraying your clothing or body.
