A popular use for my customers is as a bug repellant especially when traveling to some other countries (Avon actually sells bug repellants but some have used this product for many years and because it works continue to use it). I have had so many say it is the only thing that saved them while traveling. I also sell a lot of this product to animal lovers who use it as a flea bath and bug repellant and to help with animal dry skin. I personally love to spray a little around my doors to keep ants and other bugs from wanting to travel in my house. And I love to put a little on a cloth and leave under my car seat for a fresh herbal scent in my car. And when I can't get sticky residue off of something this product always rescues me. And it truly does moisturize your skin and make it super soft.
