I wanted a bug repellent for the summer to keep the mosquitos off me and like the idea of this one with more natural ingredients, rather than the others with the chemicals.

it really works, and the smells as nice as perfume
Bernard v on Dec 1, 2014
I have purchased this product before - gave one bottle to my grandkids and kept one for myself. I garden all summer long, and have found this bug repellent to be effective. Unfortunately, I dropped the glass bottle on my carport and lost the contents a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to get a replacement; the bugs just ate me alive the last time I worked in the garden!
Janis H on Sep 4, 2014
It's natural and organic so I don't have to worry about wearing it around my baby.

Received an email on this item and wanted to try something different since products like OFF leaves a sticky residue and makes me cough.
Sonya R on Jul 24, 2014
Mosquitos love me and I wanted a pleasant smelling repellent.
Mary B on Jul 24, 2014
I wanted something organic that would really keep the mosquitoes away. I can hardly be outside without being attacked.

Karen W on Jul 29, 2015
is this a roll-on?
Char N on Jul 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No. The bottle is designed so that a small amount of the serum is released at a time. In other words, you cannot douse yourself with it, but a small amount rubbed into a few key places seems to do the trick. I hope this helps!
Is this a spray? If not, how is it applied?
Joan L on Jun 2, 2014

This is not a spray. The bottle has a little nozzle that lets droplets come out. You can simply shake onto your hands or on the area of your body and rub it in.

It works great!
How do I know it works?
Susan L on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If at all possible, I like to work and be outside until dark. My husband refers to me as a "mosquito magnet," so I have tried quite a few repellant products. This one
does seem to work for me. A spray applicator--if possible-- would make applying to the skin easier, however.
First product is Soybean oil - is this from non-GMO soybeans? Organic is great and all, but organic AND non-gmo is better...or just no soy products works, too!
Jamie J on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Any product labeled organic cannot, by law, contain GMO ingredients. So there is no GMO ingredients in the repellent.
I would like to give this product a try! When this is restocked, will you notify me?
Sarah C on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sorry Sarah, I do not control the stocking of this product. I am a customer like you.
Is it a spray?
Nancy P on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, there is a plastic piece in the top of the bottle that allows the liquid to come out in drops. ( like bottles of essential oils)
please put me on a wait list for this product?
katrina l on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Katrina - this product is back in stock!
First ingredient is soybean oil. Is this product safe for breast cancer survivor who has to avoid estrogen?
Linda L on Jun 2, 2014
