Tropical Traditions Insect Repellent Giveaway

With spring here and summer on it's way, the warm weather brings out all the bugs. Mainly my most unfavorite bug, mosquitoes! I HATE mosquitoes! Oh, but they LOVE me! Err! I must be sweet! :) Haha, joking!

Tropical Traditions sent me a bottle of their Insect Repellent for review! It is made with the finest ingredients available! That, in turn, makes it completely safe for children and to use on your entire body including your face! I like that because usually I don't put things on my face and I end up getting bit on my forehead! Imagine how that looks! Not good!

The base of the ingredients is their Virgin Coconut Oil. Coconut oil has been used for hundreds of years to keep those pesky bugs off! Other ingredients that have been known to ward off bugs are also in the product. Citronella, lemongrass, peppermint, tansy, and catnip. Catnip? Yes, I said catnip! Researchers report that nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip that gives the plant its characteristic odor, is about ten times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET — the compound used in most commercial insect repellents.

Tropical Traditions has a wonderful sale going on right now for their Insect Repellent! Buy one get one free! Plus, they are on sale! Regularly $27.90 (for 2), now just $13.95 (for 2) until Sunday May 2nd! Better go hurry and stock up!

~Win It~
Don't have the money at the moment to buy any? Well, then here is your chance to win a bottle! One (1) lucky reader will win a bottle of TT Insect Repellent!

I'm a follower and just stop by to see what you had posted up this week. The repellant sounds great but here in Brooklyn even in the dead of summer I never need it. Anywhoo I'll come back to sticks my head in from time to time to see how your little boys are doing, to check out any pictures you have and what you have posted. Enjoy the rest of the week!
