These sprays are made with amazingly effective essential oil blends that repel insects and smell wonderful.
Finally! An all-natural, chemical-free insect repellant that smells great and works wonders!
Our sprays are made with all-natural essential oils known to prevent bites by not only mosquitos, but ticks, biting flies, and other bugs, too. Essential oils work–without the nasty side effects of DEET and other chemicals.
We’re offering two versions of our spray:
Family Friendly Bug Off! is a good choice for those if you want to be extra safe with elders or little ones, or if you need a spray for someone with different types of sensitivities. It’s also contains only essential oils that have been tested safe for pregnancy.
It contains the safe essential oils of grapefruit, citronella, geranium, patchouli, and rosalina at a milder dilution.
Citronella has been recognized by the FDA as an effective insect repellant since the 1940s, and studies in Thailand have demonstrated patchouli’s effectiveness against mosquitos. As for grapefruit, the CDC is currently working on extracting a chemical component naturally found in grapefruit, nootkatone, for use instead of DEET in commercial repellants.
Extra Strength Bug Off! is our strongest blend, formulated with top essential oils found to be more effective than DEET—without the nasty side effects!
It contains lemon eucalyptus, lemon tea tree, catnip, geranium, citronella, and lavender – all known to prevent bites from a variety of critters.
Lemon eucalyptus has been recognized by the CDC to be as effective as DEET, and geraniol, found in geranium, has been proven effective in repelling a wide variety of insects, including mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches, fire ants, fleas, gnats, ticks, and no-see-ums. Catnip in particular has actually out-performed DEET in several studies.
Both bug sprays are perfectly safe for use on kids 2yrs and up – way safer than DEET! Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Oh, these sprays are safe for dogs and horses, too (not cats!). So you can protect your furry friends from flies and ticks!
