Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

We have to use this at work as deet isn't allowed due to wearing rubber gloves. They say there's a chance the rubber could be compromised. This stuff works ok, I still get eat up from time to time. The biggest drawback that hasn't been mentioned is that the stuff STINKS! The smell is just strong. There's still no replacement for deet that I've found. Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

Very effective I have used this product for a couple years now. I moved from DEET after it damaged some of my hiking equipment. Be prepared to have plastic goo on your hands after applying DEET and handling equipment unless you wash your hands after application. I have read conflicting articles concerning DEET over the years and decided it just wasn't worth the possible health risk to continue using it. I found Repel to be very effective against mosquitoes, but it is not long-lasting.  Reapplication… Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

As a biochemist, I have to mention that Eucalyptus oil and DEET, along with almost every chemical on the planet, are both toxic at some doses. The public has the erroneous idea that "natural" chemicals are inherently safe and synthetic chemicals are dangerous. One of the most toxic chemicals ever discovered is a natural compound, botulinum toxin. The estimated lethal dose is 85 to 137 nanograms per adult human. Approximately one ounce would be enough to kill every person in the USA. Aflatoxin, a… Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

Works well for mosquitoes, does not damage synthetic fabrics, less likely to have health risks. This is the best non-DEET repellent I have tried. It works well for mosquitoes, possibly for ticks, but I just try hard to avoid them anyway, so it is hard to say. It does not last as long as DEET, but I don't mind re-applying. The absolute biggest benefit is that it does not damage synthetic fabrics. Since most of my hiking, biking, running, etc. shirts, hats, and pants are both synthetic and expensive… Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

I fish trout streams in southwestern Michigan. The mosquitoes hold their conventions on these streams. Lemon oil- eucalyptus works quite well. YOU CAN GET IT FOR $4.97 AT WAL MART. Full review

Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent

Searching for a DEET-free bug repellent? This stuff seems to work pretty well and is priced right. Was looking for a DEET-free repellent that was less chemical and more natural.  I'm pleased to say this works awesome. I was in our yard doing some cleanup in 90-degree heat today when I grabbed my recently purchased bottle. The mosquitos and gnats had come at me out of nowhere so I went to the garage  for the new spray. One spray on each arm, once on each leg, and then I used the hand that I spread… Full review

Badger Active Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Clear Zinc Sunscreen

Mineral-based sunscreen in an effort to avoid chemicals—98% organic, active ingredient is "clear" zinc oxide. Inactive ingredients are things like beeswax, sunflower oil, good moisturizers. On the plus, it does not sweat off and provides good sun protection. On the downside, it can feel greasy and a chore to wash off. A while ago, I started experimenting with natural sunscreens. I read an article that suggested the staple sun-blocking chemicals aren‘t very healthy for one’s hormonal health. Full review

BSN Medical Leukotape P

Leukotape has been in my first aid kit for 6 years. I first heard people were using it to fix blisters online. Then I saw hikers using it to protect the blistered areas and treat them. Leukotape is much better than moleskin for blister treatment. It's a thin faced sticky tape that can cover the blister and any area that has damage. It has stretch in the material and contours to the wound well.Most people that have it in their first aid kits heard it on another forum first. When I started to plan… Full review

Bag Balm Original Skin Moisturizer

This product is for dry, cracked skin and pruned skin. The properties in the balm are worth having at your house or in a small tin with you. This balm is a product of Vermont. It has such a good reputation that it's used here in Virginia as well and can be found at co-ops and feed stores. My family found it at the local hardware store. I've been using it since. The balm has lanolin in it. I turned to this due to my company's work. We work with concrete and the chemicals will dry your hands. I have… Full review
