is this a roll-on?
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · 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!

No this is not a roll-on.

The bottle has a built in dropper so simply tilt bottle and drop on desired area or on cloth or cotton ball for application.

Is this a spray? If not, how is it applied?
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · Joan L on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer · Hi Joan,

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!
Thomas P on Jun 3, 2014

It is not a spray. You apply by putting a few drops in your hand and rubbing in.

How do I know it works?
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · 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.

No bug bites! It works. My daughter runs cross country through open natural fields, and not once has she been bitten. She carries it with her all the time.

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!
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · 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.

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)
