Bug-Be-Gone Powder

Natural Powder to repel bugs. In the 18th century, pomade and powder were used that had natural repellents in them. By the 19th century,  the use of hair powders declined and the need for something else to repel the bugs became evident. This all-natural 19th-century mix works particularly well against mosquitoes and spiders and anything that bites. Simply rub the powder into the skin and smell good too! 

The scent is best described as earthy mixed with fresh garden herbs.
