    This is effective!! I have one of these everywhere!

  2. Rhea (verified owner)

    This stuff works!!! I used it on my family for a camping trip where lots of mosquitoes were swarming. The only places anyone got bit were the places I didn’t put this on! It’s easy to apply, not offensively stinky, and it worked perfectly. Can not recommend enough!

  3. Claudia (verified owner)

    I sort of like this product. It seems relatively effective but ours (perhaps just this batch?) is soupy at room temp and needs to be kept in the fridge.

  4. Magdalene (verified owner)

    This is the only bug repellent I use on my child and even myself. It works great! If I only apply it to my child and not myself. . .she has ZERO bug bites and I will have a ton. It really works. A little goes a long way, too. I’ve been using the same stick for quite some time now. I actually need to replace it.

  5. Aimee

    Will always have on hand! Mosquitoes love both my husband and son. My husband has used countless anti-bug products, from chemical base to natural and THIS ONE actually works for him. Yay!!!! My son is allergic to mosquitoes and this keeps them away from him too. Plus it smells so good.

    I am a magnet for mosquitos and this is the only natural bug repellant that I’ve tried that has actually WORKED! We use this daily in the summertime and I’ll never go back.

  7. ms.jessicamoore

    Summer in Texas, folks, is no joke! But with this stuff, I could walk /run in the mornings and evenings without getting a SINGLE bite! Also used it hiking in Oklahoma and Arkansas. AMAZING! The smell is nice too. I was worried it would feel super oily on my skin, but not at all!! Absolutely love this stuff and a little goes a long way!

  8. Sierra Tessendorf

    I LOVE this for its ability to keep bugs away. It keeps even the smallest of gnats at bay. My biggest complaint isn’t about the product, but about the packaging itself. Because of the ingredients, this product liquefies at a fairly low temperature and it leaks. I now keep it in the fridge to keep it solid. I feel like it would be much more suitable in a small tub and applied with your fingers. It’s not a deal breaker for me though because the actual product works so well. The product has a strong anti-pest smell but it does not burn your nose and after awhile, you don’t even notice a scent. I wore it in the heat while gardening, and didn’t get any bites! That’s a win for me.

  9. Crystal

    I have always had a hard time with mosquitoes biting me. I have tried many natural products and have not had much success. I tried this on a very buggy night and was pleasantly surprises I did NOT get bit. I was elated that I had finally found my bug “spray”

  10. Rebecca Sharp

    Great natural bug repellent option! I love the smell too!
