Canadian Bush Spray

 

 

We live on a farm with both running water (where blackflies breed) and still water (mosquito heaven), so we have been able to test this for three years now. We even tried it on our pets (with their consent, of course). Our customers love it! It is safe for kids and pets and is DEET free. It is packaged in a durable plastic 125ml atomizer bottle.

Ingredients: Witch hazel; catnip; essential oils of lemon grass, rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, thyme, clove leaf, catnip & geranium

 

 

125ml

 

$13.25

A testimonial from James Reid, Trager practitioner at The Village Healing Centre:

 

I like the bug spray very much. Congratulations to Porcupine Creek Farm for their 'Canadian Bush Spray' herbal insect repellant.

 

It is not like DEET, possibly not so immediately effective as a deterrent, but also not nearly so horrible. It feels and smells pleasant, and does not give me the sensation of being steeped in toxicity that comes with using DEET based insect repellants. The pump spray is effective and easy to use. I took it with me up to the Blue Skies Music Festival site yesterday afternoon. The weather was warm and muggy (late June) with a couple of brief downpours (thunder and lightning thrown in for free!), perfect for nasty big deer flies and mosquitoes too.

 

Five of us used the spray. The deer flies did not appreciate it (good news!), nor did the mosquitoes. I stayed with just a tee-shirt, jeans and sandals all afternoon and evening while we did some work and then sat around a campfire, cooking, eating, chatting and playing music into the small hours. Every now and again I would find a mosquito attempting to bite my ankle or my neck or whatever and I just sprayed some more of the juice on. That seemed to do the trick; applications appear to have a cumulative deterrent effect. Towards the end of the evening the only place I was getting an occasional bite was through my tee-shirt in the middle of my back where I had not bothered to spray any of the bug juice. Between the 5 of us we went through about one third of a bottle for the evening; quite an acceptable rate of consumption. Woke up this morning with the scent of citronella, rosemary, eucalyptus, tea tree, thyme, cloves, geranium, etc.     

 

I have a request for 2 more bottles.

 

Thanks so much [Albert and Brown] for giving me the opportunity to 'field trial' this 'north of the seven'.

 

Regards,

 

James Reid

Natural Sunscreen – SPF 30

 

Because we grow the herbs for most of our body products, we spend a lot of time outdoors, so we wanted a safe sunscreen. We have been making this chemical-free, petroleum-free SPF 30 sunscreen for three years now and it works. It contains only natural ingredients and is safe for baby. Zinc oxide is the active ingredient. It provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The calendula, which has natural cell regeneration properties, is certified organic and grown on our farm. The beeswax is purchased locally and the vitamin E oil is used as a preservative.

 

Ingredients: Cocoa butter*, shea butter*, mango butter, zinc oxide, calendula* infused olive oil*, jojoba oil, beeswax, vitamin E oil, geranium essential oil (*organic)

Baby Bottom Balm

 

All our body products started with this product, because when Thomas was born seven years ago, Karen didn’t want to put petroleum products on his skin. It is a great barrier cream, both for babies’ bums and wind-chapped cheeks, and Karen even used it when nursing. It’s a nice face cream, too.

 

Ingredients: Almond oil, beeswax, calendula* and chamomile* flowers, rose petals*,  vitamin E oil, lavender essential oil  (*organic)
