Today I will be reviewing the Ecolicious LEAVE ME BE all natural Equine Body Spray. As you may recall, if you follow me, i did a haul on Ecolicious Equestrian Products. Click here to check out the haul.
I got the LEAVE ME BE spray as an alternative to my Ultashield fly spray as ecolicious is made of all natural ingredients and is also eco friendly, whereas the ultrasheild, even though works great, is full of chemicals, and not to mention that it comes with false packaging as the fly spray does not last 17 days, let alone one.
So I have been using LEAVE ME BE for a bit more than a month now and both Tofino and I are lov-ing it! As Ecolicious quotes:
You don’t want to spray your horse with chemical-laden products and we couldn’t agree more. Leave Me Be is the perfect spray to keep your horse comfortable and happy this summer without the use of harsh, irritating chemicals that can be hard on his sensitive skin. We’ve formulated our Body Spray using fine wild-crafted essential oils and plant extracts that are gentle on the environment. Tea Tree Oil is known to protect and sooth irritated and bug-bitten skin, while the blend of cooling Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Citronella and Lemon will keep your horse feeling and smelling fresh. We’ve also added ultra-moisturizing Vegetable Glycerin, known for its skin and coat conditioning properties, for that ooh-soo-silky feeling.
And no, we did not forget UV protection – we don’t like bleached coats either. Leave Me Be contains Sunflower Seed Extract, a natural sunscreen, to help protect your horse’s coat from damaging UV rays. Like all EcoLicious products, this spray is made with human-grade ingredients, because we believe in only the best for your equine partner.
This is the perfect combination for Tofino as he is grey, therefore, gets sun protection, shine, soothing effect and of course leaves the flies and bugs away.
We tend to go on hacks a lot, and there are specific times when passing through the municipality garbage area where we get attached by a swarm of flies and other bugs. However, using this fly spray before i hack has prevented us being followed by bugs and insects!
The only complaint i have about this product is the packaging. The sprayer is so stiff and slippery. It also sprays a lot and very wide. I switched the spray bottle to an ACE Hardware Sprayer Bottle instead (32oz) as seen below:
- Repels bugs/insects
- Smells amazing
- UV protection
- Adds shine
- Natural ingredients
- Sprayer is stiff and hard to press
- Sprayer sprays a lot
I cannot rave more about this product honestly, it smells amazing, does its job well and has UV protection. What more could you ask for? Definitely purchasing a refill.
