Bug Off | Natural Mosquito Repellent


Shipping to United States: Free

Make your backyard enjoyable again!
I live in the midwest and for some reason, even though my backyard is puddle-free and relatively well groomed, our mosquitos are VICIOUS. Not only are they ravenously blood thirsty; they're brave little beasts and have proven themselves to be up to the challenge of getting a meal despite my best efforts of self protection. They push themselves through the wind tunnels of fans I set up on my porch, they fight through the fumes of the mosquito candles I light, and they feast on me even when I wear jeans.
So, I tried one last thing before resorting to a professional spray service to make my backyard livable during the summer. I made my own spray.
Sure, I could have bought some "OFF", I'm sure that would have worked. But the stuff scares me, and I am definitely not about to spray that on my kids.
And besides, I was THRILLED at how well it works! The mosquitos really seem to hate it! I still do all the other things too, like keep the porch fan on and light citronella candles, etc etc, but now we're able to go out and enjoy the fresh air while keeping all our blood inside our own bodies! It's amazing. I love not being breakfast, lunch and dinner for a bunch of creepy little vampires.

]I can't say "safe for children and pets" for legal reasons, but I'll tell you I feel 100% at ease spraying this on my own children knowing they have had no issues in the past with any of the essential oils or ingredients I use in this spray. You need to figure out your own kid's (and pets) allergies/sensitivities for yourself, but just know that this spray has been tested on myself and my kids for the last 6 or so weeks and we have had no problems whatsoever. I regularly forget to wash it off their skin, too, so the "testing" has been pretty thorough.
Cruelty free, of course 😉

This comes in a 2 oz spray bottle, either amber glass or amber BPA free plastic (just depends on what I have in stock), and ships in 1 business day from Kansas City, MO

The ingredients are : organic vodka, witch hazel, and essential oils of peppermint, lavender, lemongrass, citronella, geranium, cypress, tea tree and clove.

Store in a cool, dry place and use by the end of the season when you have your first frost and all the nasty flying micro bloodsuckers have perished in their chilly graves.
