Hand-crafted and made with pure, high quality plant, seed and nut oils from all over the world. These simple oils combine to repel the most persistent biters. Each oil has a specific purpose for being included in this powerful elixir. The castor oil help to distribute the oils all over your skin and is a natural moisturizer for your skin. It is important to rub Adiós Mo' Skitos into your skin after giving your body a good spray down as full coverage is only achieved by massaging the sprayed oil droplets into your skin wherever skin is exposed. The peppermint oil not only repels with its menthol-like aroma, peppermint sooths the skin, so if you DO get bit, shake well and spray the area and the itch will go away. We like to spray it into our hands after shaking it up and rub it on our faces and then through our hair. (Yes, they go there too) Avoid getting too close to the eyes and mouth. It is very refreshing on a hot summer day AND your not rubbing chemicals onto your face and body, just pure, unadulterated natural plant oils.
