No Mosquito Soap


I made this soap because so many clients have been asking for a natural soap that will deter Mosquitoes. I used the base recipe that I like the most, and added Essential Oils that deter Mosquitoes. Just waiting for it to cure but I have a feeling it will sell out quickly!


Really at a loss for a name here… I am not interested in cutsy or comical names. Just want a simple straight-forward name for this soap? There has to have a simple translation into Spanish as well… any ideas?

Hey Jen, Mine's called
"Skeeter Beater", -you're welcome to use that in Spain, but I don't know how it would translate! LOL!

I did a "Tick-Off" tick repellant soap (that landed me on Southern IL T.V. a few years ago) that sold like hotcakes. (Don't have any this year, though)I will bet you SELL OUT of this new at your next market -no matter what you name it!

Por si las Moscas

And whatever suits you in English.

Cheers!

Hi Jen, mine is called 'Dirty Dog' but I don't know the Spanish translation, I could probably do the Portuguese one though!! looks lovely

AYU said...

Very Nice White Soaps!
I wonder what kind of essential oils you used..? Very interesting!
Mosquitoes in Japanese is "KA".
FYI.. =)

Bug soap is a total summer must! Loving everyone's name suggestions!

I love it, I made a soap like this a year ago and it was popular as well. This is reminding me to make another batch.

I'd use: Bug Be Gone, Bug Off Soap, Stay Away Bugs, Shoofly Soap

PS I wish I was going to be near Toronto in July and August as my sister and I were talking about it awhile back. I'm sure you will have a great time, I'm a big fan of Marilyn Denis and wanted to see her new live as I've seen the old one live.

Maybe at some point my sister and I can send you the words or an audio file of our funny Craft Market aches song.

Bugs Away, Mosquito No More is kinda long, but I don't know how it would translate.
I need a soap like this for my little one, she's been getting eaten lately.

Tara said...

Beautiful soap, Jennifer. Have fun choosing a name from all the great suggestions.

Amy Warden said...

All I know is that another soaper got in trouble for using Bug Off, since it is trademarked by SC Johnson, and that was the name I was using. So I changed it to Bye Bye Bugs. Sells out fast!

Celine, Thank you for offering your creativity!! You speak Spanish!!? xo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

Sonja, On Babelfish, this translates as "Drives Away Mosquitos"... oh wow. Look at what a beautiful language Italian is... Scaccia zanzare.... Scaccia zanzare... Sounds like a beautiful love poem, not Drives Away Mosquitos!! I love it! Thank you for your contribution. xoxo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

Zwerg, can you help me? What does MückWech mean? I can't seem to find a translation easily...

Jennifer Young said...

SoapChick, I LOVE Dirty Dog. Too many choices now! xo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

AYU, The EO combo is: Citronella, Eucalyptus, Cedarwood, Lemongrass and Basil. However, I am waiting for a shipment of Lemon Eucalyptus which I want to try in the next batch. xoxo Jen

Jennifer Young said...

Zwerg said...

Jen, it is Slang German(;-)
Mück means Mosquito and Wech means something like ..away..

I also have a DrechWech( Dirt away)

Jen,

I hope we meet someday as I'd like to give you a big hug, after all we are Canadians and from the same province. Who knows maybe I'll come to Spain one day.

This song is a very silly one and not one of my best works by any means. The lyrics change according to our mood. :)

Michelle, Two Blooms, I would love a big hug from a fellow Canadian and Soap Maker. You would be very welcome for a visit here as long as you are up to making some soap together!!! Any time. I love silly, goofy, spontaneous songs. One day maybe we can sing it together. xo Jen
