Neem has always known for its mosquito repelling properties. In earlier times people use to burn neem tree leaves in order to get rid of mosquitos in their houses. When summer has already begun, it invites hell lot of mosquitoes with itself. Here forest essential came to rescue us. They came up with innovative product in 2015. It is an Ayurvedic all natural formulation which helps keeps mosquitoes at bay.

It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with spray nozzle which makes it so easy to apply on exposed areas. there is a transparent cap to lock the nozzle and makes it travel friendly. It is yellowish orange in colour. Brand name and other product details are mentioned on front and back of the bottle.
This is a water based Mosquito Repellent with pure Essential Oils of Citronella, Lemon Grass, and other Ayurvedic Herb infusions of Neem and Vetiver that are traditionally renowned in Ayurveda to keep away mosquitoes and other insects.
Neem is anti-antibacterial and purifying and active compounds of Neem also help to ward off mosquitoes of almost all species, while Citronella, Lemongrass and Vetiver are antiseptic and detoxifying. Repelling mosquitoes with synthetic products may be harmful to the user in long run, but natural repellents not only repel the mosquitoes but also invigorate your senses with their pleasant and long lasting fragrance.
How to use
Spray onto the exposed part of the body, except the face, to protect yourself from insect bites.
I never thought a brand like Forest Essential would come up with such a product. Mosquito repellant was always Odomos for me since childhood. But i am happy that i used this one, Because using Odomos was like applying a thick layer of chemically prospected cream all over your body and giving it little or space to breath, whereas this spray is water based including neem oil, lemongrass and citronella extracts which makes it completely safe to use and no thick layering at all.
Plus point! It smells equally nice due to lemongrass. It does keep mosquitos away and good to use if you are going out specially during evening hours. I keep this in my purse whenever i am stepping out of the house.
Only thing which i am afraid of is if you have applied this on your arms and by any chance you happen to touch your mouth it will taste bitter like anything. It happened to me once since then i am very cautious after spraying this all over that i wash my hands or don’t touch my mouth at all.
