Our Organic Personal Outdoor Spray is not only made with all natural and organic ingredients, but it can be used on skin and it really WORKS to keep the bugs away and allow you to enjoy the great outdoors!
More than just plugging our organic natural pest solution we also want to educate you on the toxic perils of more traditional sprays, DEET in particular.
100% natural and made with over 95% Certified Organic ingredients
Cleverly blended using beautiful Certified Organic ingredients and essential oils to annoy mosquitos more than they’ll annoy you
Free from DEET! We do not use chemicals, toxins, GMOs or parabens to repel insects
Combining cedarwood, citronella, basil and lemongrass, creates a scent that is unappealing to pests and mosquitoes, but smells great to us!
This combination of essential oils will also help to hydrate and nourish your skin
Children love it! A Gold Coast mother and attorney described her experience using it on her son:
“It was so refreshing to be able to spray something that smelt so good and wasn’t toxic on him. He loved getting sprayed with it!” – Cass Wicks, mother and attorney
DEET is the problem!
The active ingredient in most commercial insect repellants is N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide otherwise known as “DEET”. This chemical is considered safe ONLY in very low doses and not for prolonged uses or multiple applications. DEET is absorbed through our skin – our body’s largest organ – and into the systemic circulation. Scary!
Negative effects of DEET may include irritation to the eyes, skin and respiratory system and the prolonged use of DEET has been linked to severe harm to the brain and nervous system function. Children are also particularly at risk as their skin more readily absorbs chemicals in the environment, which have more potent effects on their developing nervous systems.
YOU HAVE OPTIONS!
It terrifies us that people regularly spray insect repellents with a concoction of toxic chemicals on their bodies and into their bloodstreams. You have other options! We have created a natural, toxic-free and Certified Organic alternative that we think is far more effective. We have tested Organic Personal Outdoor Spray at feeding hour – Sonya, who lives by the creek swears by it! A Gold Coast Naturopath and Homeopath used Organic Personal Outdoor Spray on an Easter camping trip and said:
“There were heaps of midges but no bites on us. They were still around, but no bites!”
Anyone who knows me knows I’m not lacking in oodles of spirit! I move a mile a minute and my world is full on and exciting and full of beautiful people. Never once do I take any of it for granted, but every now and again, I catch myself caught up in a whirlwind. At this point, I know it’s time to stop and make sure I’m spiritually and emotionally in touch with my spirit and that it’s not being contaminated with toxic surroundings, situations, thoughts or people. This is my time for a mental and spiritual detox.
To be good at what I do…to be a good wife, mother and business leader, I practice what I preach! I try to practice self-care and I nurture my spirit every day in some way for an ongoing spiritual detox. Because I do, I then feel equipped to nurture the people around me. Trust me on this too…I pick those people VERY carefully.
So here are my top tips for a mental and spiritual detox:
1. Connect with animals and nature
Every day I go for a walk or run and I literally have to force myself to stop and ‘smell the roses’. Did you know that if you look hard enough inside every flower is another tiny flower ready to bloom? I force myself to stop and be ‘mindful’ (buzz word alert) every day and if I didn’t I would never stop moving.
2. Decontaminate my space
Every now and again ask yourself…who are the spirits hanging around me and I know it’s also a bit of a ‘buzz word’ at the moment, but if you haven’t heard of gaslighting PLEASE educate yourself! Gaslighters are manipulators that make you doubt yourself and as a result you can lose your healthy sense of identity and self-worth. Chances are you have at least one of these people in your life right now…CUT THEM LOOSE! I’m serious.
3. Shut off social media
Guilty as charged. I’m on social media a lot – usually on instagram letting my mind go wild with ideas, but even I recognise the importance of shutting off for a detox, and the rest of my family have to do it too. As I manifest the UFC wrestler inside me and wrangle the electronic devices from the hands of my girls I preach the importance of being in the moment without distractions. I shut my mind so my spirit can thrive.
Yes pray. Every single day I give it all over and I unload to a higher power. I am a big believer in taking nothing for granted. I am always grateful for the beauty in my life.
5. Love myself
I know I’m not perfect, and I’ve made mistakes in my life and trusted people I probably shouldn’t have, but most importantly I own it all. I am what I am and I love it all.
I believe we are all here to be the best version of ourselves. Nurture and feed your ‘spirit’. Furthermore, protect it from anything toxic and take a mental and spiritual detox when you need it!
Eco Tan new girl, Sarah, shares her experience starting a new job as a manager
I’d been keeping my eye out for my next dream job and remember coming across a Marketing position at Eco Tan. I read through the job role requirements – nodding, nodding, nodding. I wrote my cover letter straight from the heart knowing I was a great fit. Starting a new job as a manager in the marketing department at Eco Tan?! Surely this was too good to be true…
The very next day I received a call from the one and only Sonya Driver who asked me all the standard questions in a hurry, and then she asks… ”Do you move fast?” and “Be honest, are you easy to get along with?”, and lastly, “Are you crazy, because I’ve known a lot of crazy Sarahs in my time…” (insert wide-eyed emoji right here!)
From humble beginnings in her tiny Gold Coast kitchen in 2010, Sonya Driver Eco Tan founder now celebrates Eco Tan’s seventh year in business! Eco Tan has become a constantly growing global company with a huge and passionate cult following worldwide.
A growing global presence
Today, in the organic beauty industry, we are considered a global leader! We have has 30 passionate Gold Coast staff members and thousands of stockists and distributors globally. Our products are now stocked as far and remotely as Madagascar, Vanuatu, Dubai and New Caledonia. Furthermore, you can even stock up on us from the Greek Isles or while flying on Icelandic Air!
I thrive in the sunshine and worshipped the sun growing up (we all know how that turned out) and even though I am so grateful to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world – even the Gold Coast gets cold in Winter and my skin hates it!
Last week I walked into the bathroom and caught my husband doing the unthinkable in the shower…… that’s right, exfoliating his dry itchy skin with our organic Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub. I wondered why I was running out all the time! This product is seriously a must have. It’s a deep exfoliator with beautiful coconut oil and shea butter it creates a perfect drenching. This product is number 1 in my household, we all fight over it.
In our recent experiences, people or brands claim to have “organic spray tan solutions” – this frustrates us beyond belief!!
This is, we think, one of our most important blogs to date…
Last night, we got an email from one of our new spray tanners. She was so shocked at the difference in ingredients between our organic spray tan solutions and other company’s “organic” spray tan solutions. It is SO frustrating how many other brands and business out there claim to be “organic” – when really their products are filled with chemicals and cancerous crap!
You know its not the crap that happens to us in life that defines us, its what we do with that crap. I always try to turn it into a positive. Ohhh… I feel the pain first and go through the emotions of whatever has smashed me and I strive to be an OVERCOMER!
There is no other option.
I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma cut out of my chest, 5 years later one from my forehead. Then recently a penetrating BCC from my nose. The mistake I made was the tiny spot that would bleed on my nose had been there 3 years. I did have it frozen off however it grew back. I recently learnt that freezing BCC only has a 30% success rate.
Its calming, hydrating, and antioxidant properties are great for all skin types, even for rosacea, eczema and acne effected skin! Hyaluronic Acid (H.A) also has wonderful anti-ageing properties and is also one of the most effective hydrating ingredients for skin.
