About the TerraShield™ Repellent Blend:
As you know, to avoid troublesome insects during outdoor activities in the summer, most people rely on OFF® — or some other kind of mosquito repellant — which contains DEET. In fact, DEET (the common name for N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide) is used by an estimated 200 million people each year.
This extensive use of DEET is understandable, because no one wants to lock him/herself away for the summer, and insects — especially mosquitoes — pose significant health threats. Besides their itchy bites, insects can transmit nasty pathogens, causing — among other things — Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus. And, malarial — another mosquito-born disease — causes an estimated 2.7 million deaths per year.
To prevent the spread of these insect-borne diseases, experts recommend using an effective insect repellent. The most common repellents are products that contain DEET. But, despite industry claims to the contrary, DEET is a powerful and toxic chemical, known to be extremely toxic to the nervous system, causing negative side-effects, including seizures. And, it can be especially deadly for small children and infants. Thus, their label warnings.
There just has to be a better option.
And now, there is. TerraShield™ Repellent Blend from dōTERRA® is an all-natural, non-toxic alternative to DEET-containing insect repellents. Gentle and safe enough to be used by everyone in the family, it provides powerful coverage and lasts up to 6 hours per application — without DEET or other toxic chemicals.
What is TerraShield™?
TerraShield™ is a proprietary blend of 15 Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils, that have been scientifically shown to repel insects more effectively than other — synthetic — insect repellents. These include:
- Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus citriodora),
- Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus), and
- Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus).
These 15 essential oils in are blended in a base of 100% pure fractionated coconut oil, that nourishes and soothes your skin, leaving it renewed after each application.
TerraShield™ is super-concentrated; so, just a small amount will provide you and your family with worry-free, safe and effective protection from mosquitoes, and other bothersome insects, all day long.
Oh! And did I tell you that TerraShield™ smells great? It really does. Just wait until you smell it … it's amazing. It doesn't smell like an "insect repellent" at all; it has a fresh, light citrus smell, that is wonderfully invigorating.
