Awakening awaits in the depths of the forest, each leaf and branch inviting you on a journey deeper into yourself.
Make sure your walk in the woods is a peaceful one by protecting your skin with Living Libations Forager’s Cologne. Far from a typical, chemical-scented insect repellant, this spray is crafted with 100% organic essential oils known for their traditional use of making insects fly away.
Nature’s best and brightest have made the cut: cedar and peppermint for invigoration, eucalyptus to soothe, white sage to consecrate and geranium to invigorate.
Typical insect sprays create a layer of protection on the surface of the skin, which leaves tissue either greasy or dry and smelling of chemicals. Our natural spritz infuses the skin’s deepest layers with beneficial ingredients, penetrating the tissue with healing compounds.
Forager’s Cologne is most effective when used in combination with our Forager’s Balm. Before you embark on your forest foray, spritz exposed skin, hair and clothes with the cologne, then use Forager’s balm on your hands, behind the ears, on the face, and at the nape of the neck.
A single drop of Forager’s Cologne is also a wonderful remedy for bug bites – apply directly to the skin, being sure to avoid the eye area.
Leleshwa – Also known as African Sage, Leleshwa is a shrub that grows in the wild Kenyan bush. Wild animals like elephants and rhinoceros rub their skin upon the shrub to protect themselves from insects, making this nature’s true answer to pest protection!
White sage – This traditional Native American remedy has been used for centuries to sanctify body and spirit during religious ceremonies and rituals. It’s also an anti-inflammatory that is said to soothe itchy skin and insect bites.
Geranium – Geranium is potent with the botanical compounds of geraniol and citral which are the competent components that have made geranium an effective vermifuge throughout history.
Lemon tea tree – Lemon tea tree contains three potent compounds that are nature’s most effective answer to pest control: citral, citronellal, and pinen. Lemon tea tree has the added benefit of being a wonderful antidepressant.
Eucalyptus Globulus – This particular strain of eucalyptus contains high amounts of cineol, another powerful natural insecticide. Eucalyptus globulus is also said to ease the inflammation of insect bites and cleanse the bite area of bacteria and viruses.
Eucalyptus Staigeriana – Eucalyptus staigeriana is also referred to as Lemon-Scented Ironbark Eucalyptus oil. It contains the compounds of citronellaol, citral, geraniol and limonene.
Cedar – Rich, woodsy cedar oil is the ingredient that takes our Forager’s cologne from a natural repellent to a standalone fragrance. You just might find yourself spritzing even when you’re nowhere near the forest! Cedar is also a wonderful anti-inflammatory that soothes bitten skin.
Peppermint – Peppermint oil is wonderfully refreshing but not to insects who find the aroma too powerful. Takes the itch out of bites too. It has shown to be an effective treatment against lice.
Jojoba – Packed with phenolic compounds, tocopherols, and every soluble form of Vitamin E, jojoba is nature’s most effective moisturizer. Since it’s so close in composition to the skin’s own natural oils, it is easily absorbed and able to deliver endless moisture to thirsty tissue.
Beeswax – your Jai baby is shielded by an invisible layer of protection each time you use our beeswax-based balm. Beeswax forms a porous layer on the skin, protecting it from chafing while retaining nutrients and moisture.
