I recently noticed how bad I am affected by mosquito bites. Living in South Florida you can honestly find mosquitos a little more than just the summer, therefore, this product provides full protection when those little critters are out any time of the year. I love the smell because it smells very citrusy from the citronella and it is oil based as it carries different essential oils. I am totally all for all natural products and this is DEET FREE! Highly recommend this burst bee product. I purchase mine at Whole Foods

I put this to the test in the rain forests of Saint Lucia 🇱🇨 it has a great minty smell and works to repel all sorts of ants and mosquitoes and other flying insects. It does need to be applied more often than DEET products but that was a compromise I was happy to make to avoid harsh chemicals! I also like that it is not actually aerosol but spritzes very evenly after shaking and can also be sprayed on hands and rubbed into smaller areas if preferred.

I literally cannot live without this natural product during the summer. My husband and I spend a lot of time outdoors and the mosquitoes love to bite me. When I wear this I do not get a single bug bite! Did I mention it smells great? I have been asked if I am wearing perfume! The light scent of lemon grass gives off a fresh aroma that you will love but the bugs will hate! This is always my go to bug spray.

Such a great all-natural alternative to the chemical-laden bug sprays. I've been using this one for years. I love the smell of it. Actually, since I've been using it for so long now, I associate the scent with summer. It isn't greasy or too thick - it goes on very easily, and best of all, it keeps the bugs at bay! Now, it may not work as well as the chemical stuff, but you can't expect it to. Let's face it - humans have been dealing with insects since the beginning of time. It's unfortunately a natural part of life. I personally have an issue with people who try to fix this problem by using harsh chemical sprays that affect health and wellness. Here's an option that, while it may not be as effective, it really does help and it does so without the risky consequences of mainstream bug spray.
