BUG'S OFF spray based on the hydrolat of real lavender and a mixture of essential oils is a natural herbal preparation that can be used on the skin or fur of animals. True lavender hydrosol basically acts as a cleansing, soothing and nourishing agent. With the addition of a carefully selected mixture of essential oils, it ensures that the skin and hair of your animals remains healthy and clean. In addition to the active ingredients, a natural aroma is released, which is pleasant for animals and people and unpleasant for insects.

Why did we decide that the main ingredient would be real lavender? 

True lavender belongs to the Lamiaceae family. It grows up to half a meter high and is a semi-shrub with narrow, oppositely placed and silver-grey hairy leaves. On the shoots that sprout in the spring, the leaves are larger and less hairy. The purplish-blue flowers look like rare spikes. There are four stamens, two longer and two shorter. It blooms from June to September. True lavender grows in dry and rocky areas. It does not grow wild in Slovenia, but it is cultivated. It originates from the Mediterranean, but it is also cultivated in the Netherlands, Great Britain, the United States of America (mainly California) and Australia (mainly Tasmania).

Ingredients and active ingredients: Lavender contains from 0.5-1.5% essential oil, which consists of more than 100 different components. One of the main components is linalool, which is a monoterpene alcohol in structure. In addition to linalool, linalyl acetate and small amounts of borneol, isoborneol, cineole, coumarin and camphor are also important components. Lavender also contains tannins of the lamiace type (12%) as well as saponins, resin and bitters.

Lavender originates from Arab lands and is at least 2500 years old. In 600 BC they brought it from the Greek island of Hyeres and spread it throughout Europe. Due to its fresh smell, the ancient Greeks and Romans used it to perfume baths and rooms. Queen Elizabeth I of England used it as toilet water. In the Middle Ages, lavender was used to repel lice, and from the 15th century onwards, lavender perfume was also made. In the Middle Ages, lavender was also believed to ward off the plague. Medieval glove makers are said to have been ignored by the plague, and people associated it with lavender. Since then, many people in plague areas carried a bundle of dried lavender between their clothes.

It was brought to America by the first immigrants at the beginning of the 17th century. Much later, during the First World War, lavender hydrolat or rose water was used by nurses, as it has an antibacterial effect.

The effect of essential oils on the physical and psychological well-being of people was extensively researched by the French chemist Rene-Maurice Gateffosse, who was also the first to introduce the concept of aromatherapy. He discovered the healing power of essential oils by accident. Namely, while working in the laboratory, a part of his hand caught fire, which he extinguished with hydrolate or lavender rose water, since at that moment it was the only liquid nearby. He noticed that the burns healed extremely quickly without any serious consequences.
