I've recently been pondering this question with my mom in mind; she enjoys summer walks outdoors but those annoying insects inevitably send her indoors. So I've been researching natural products that will repel insects. Enter neem oil. According to discoverneem.com the benefits of neem oil for humans, animals and plants are vast, not the least of which is it's a natural insect repellent that is good for the skin. It reportedly helps relieve symptoms of psoriasis, eczema and acne as well as dry, itchy and irritated skin.

The nutty-garlic smell of the neem oil has already mellowed considerably. It has a distinctively earthy aroma to it now. I'm looking forward to testing it in about 4 weeks' time and will certainly be posting an update.
Here's to summer and the great outdoors!
