Get Your Goat

When the weather’s nice, what’s not to love about the great outdoors? Besides the risk of dying from the West Nile virus, encephalitis, or an overdose of DEET.

Stop bugging. Before your next all-day al fresco jaunt, lather up in the shower with a chemical-free insect-repellent bar from Beekman 1802 in upstate New York.

Made from the farm’s organic goat milk and naturally scented with citronella, eucalyptus, and other essential oils, the stuff helps keep skeeters, flies, and ticks off the goods. Each eight-ounce bar is cut into mini squares that can be stashed in a pocket, hanky, or purse. For last-minute BBQ invites, rub one on your pulse points. Your body heat will release a fragrant bugger-off from the oils into the air.

Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that it will work for other pests — like the creep who won’t stop staring at your silky, smooth skin.
