bug SHOO was created with the health and wellbeing of our horses and humans in mind. While about to go out and buy the traditional repellent on the market that can cover wounds I was inspired to make something that was not toxic. I did not want to have to ' wash off my hands immediately', or better yet 'apply with gloves', 'do not use while pregnant', and the list went on. WHY would I want to put this on my horse?!
The creating and 'lab testing' with all natural, (and technically edible, organic when possible) ingredients went into full gear. Samples were given out, research done and the product we have come up with is unbeatable in our book! Scratches, bites, small wounds have healed and disappeared with in days. And to know that the balm that is being applied actually AIDS in healing- with the antimicrobial components of natural essential oils, and healing and cooling takes place from the oils of coconut and extra virgin olive oil. All the while REPELLING the nasty critters that sometimes start the problem, like black flies, horseflies and ticks. Our horses have been out all summer without fly masks and there are no black fly bites in their ears. Once the initial 3 day application is complete, we have found 1-2 times a week after that is all that is needed. Rub between your hands and apply to your horses face, instead of putting toxic spray on, close to their breathing. Black flies bites on the belly healed and continuously, as like with the ears, no more bugs wanted anything to do with the areas. Rain rot disappeared, SHOO was applied on horses this summer that had allergic reactions to weeds, and the spots were soothed and healed, allowing the horse to stop rubbing himself raw.
We have also found that bug SHOO is not just for horses! We have them in all of our bathrooms at home and in the barn. We put it under bandaids, rashes, eczema, burns, even coldsores! The feed back from parents that have children with eczema that has not cleared for months with prescribed traditional medicines, but clears within a week with SHOO, has been so rewarding! Symptoms cleared that had been present years! It can be used as a hair de frizzer, lip balm, and the healing benefits of all the ingredients are antioxidants, to help pre aging, helps cell repair and function and reduces scarring. The beeswax acts as a natural barrier helps hold in moisture, but allows the skin to breathe, unlike petroleum. The nicest thing to know is that if there is extra on our hands, we can rub it in and feel safe about! And it smells yummy!
