I first used Cedar's Best oil here in Ohio, and it seemed to work very well against the mosquitoes. This was two summers ago, and I was very pleased. Then I planned a solo wilderness canoe trip to the Quetico wilderness in Ontario in Mid-July. I was expecting to have to ward off insects, and I was not disappointed in my expectations.
In the Quetico, one paddles across lakes, and more often than not must portage to the next lake, often though low and swampy areas rife with horseflies, mosquitoes, bees, wasps, and many types of flying, stinging insects, as wells as ticks and more. Carrying a canoe on shoulders, with gear slung on the back, is no time to slap at and ward of insects by hand. When portaging, I would spray my exposed skin and hat with Cedar's Best, and lo and behold, not once was I accosted!
This product is amazing. I would also like to add that not only does it smell good, but often I have heard comments on how good others seem to like the smell. Surprisingly, it may contain human pheromones, I have had women comment on how much they love the smell of me when I wear it.
Thank you for providing such a great, all natural product. As someone who is aware of all the toxic chemicals we can surround ourselves with, I really appreciate the availability of something that I know is not harmful to skin, clothes, or hair. It is simply the best all natural insect repellent I have ever used.
