Bergamot Essential Oil is a Natural Bug Repellent

Bergamot Did you know that Bergamot Essential Oil is a natural bug repellent?  At a recent outdoor event, the gnats were swarming our Rideau Organics booth. As I was in the shade (bergamot, like citrus essential oils is photo sensitive), I quickly applied our Bergamot Foot Stick to my bare skin.   While we didn't formulate it as a bug repellent, it also helped to soothe and provide quick relief to my ankles that those nasty bugs bit.  In a pinch, just like our product soothes and repairs dry, chapped feet - it helps with itchy bug bites too.  Just remember to use it when you are indoors, not out in the sun.  Laurie
