I like that it's travel size so I can toss it in my saddle bag if out riding, in my gardening tool bag, or have it in the car when I need it if I go anywhere. With woods on one side and water on the other there are tons of gnats, mosquitos, and deerfly everywhere. I like the pleasant scent and so far, it has lasted for hours outside. It doesn't have a greasy feel to it so that's a plus! I like that it doesn't have DEET and is essential oils. I checked, and it can be used on children 6 months and up so that has to tell you something about how safe the ingredients are! I think it will hold up to the heat of the coastal area but if it doesn't I will let you know. I will be getting a few more to keep everywhere I can use it.
I spritzed this on my Grandkids and daughter as we gardened outside I noticed no bug bites that I usually get after only a few minutes outside. My husband wouldn't use the product and came outside and was immediately bitten by mosquitoes. I would by this repellant because it's safe around my pets, it's travel size and best of all it really works!
I swear by Mosquito Repellant Spritz!
I love that this spray is all natural. I am trying to clean up my life from all the chemicals that surround us on a daily basis. The spray does smell like citronella but it is not overpowering. I am looking forward to using this when the bugs appear. The small size makes easy to put it in my gardening apron and in my travel bag. Gifted
Being someone with cancer the DEET-free is important to me. I was planting bushes the other day and the bugs were going crazy for my manure. I sprayed this on and like magic the bugs left me alone. This is a fantastic product! The size of the bottle is perfect for my purse and in the car. Can't beat the price either. I love this! I'm so happy to have found something safe that actually works.
I love this product! I am usually covered in mosquitoes when I step out on my deck, even with my spray on. Every morning and at dusk, with Bug Botanist NOT A SINGLE ONE! On me or the dogs! Down here on the gulf coast, this is huge!! And the smell is yummy! I don’t hesitate to swear by it!! I’ve already told my friends!! Gifted
I really enjoyed trying this product. And perfect timing for the great weather we have coming our way. I loved the smell and having asthma a lot of products are harsh and flare up my asthma with their smell. This product not only smelled great but kept my skin soft and not sticky. As soon as I mention to my daughter it’s bug spray time she goes running, but with this spray I was pleasantly surprised she let me spray it on her. That was definitely a huge test because up until this product she related bug spray with an awful smell and always leaving her sticky. I would definitely be purchasing this product again and happy to be able to stay outdoors on my deck and go on my nature walks on these warm nights without running inside afraid of getting bit. This is a great convenient product.
Have been using this product for a little over 10 days now as I go for my daily walks and when sitting outdoors on the front porch or in the back on my deck. This has really helped with keeping the mosquito at bay.
It has a kinda of citrus smell and not too oily. Would recommend this products to people who like to be outdoors and have a way of protecting themselves from the pesky bitters.
This works great while sitting on my patio at sunset when the bugs are at their worst. I like the citronella scent. The scent comes on strong when first applied but is subtle after only a few minutes . Secondly, it is an oil base which is great for my skin especially during summer months when exposed to the elements. Most importantly the ingredients are safe, natural, and DEET free.
I love it! My husband and I were hiking in the woods and then the bugs came out. My husband had the bug spray in his cargo-pant pocket; he took it out and sprayed our legs. It worked, and it smelled great! I'm sensitive to fragrant smells and perfume, so I was a little nervous about this bug spray. The citrus scent was nice, and didn't bother me. Yeah! We will be using this product again for sure! We're going bike riding this weekend and we'll be bringing this mosquito repellent with us!
The mosquitos & gnats have yet to come out in northern MN so I can't attest to the effectiveness of the bug spray. I do like the idea of a natural product that works. The spray goes on nicely, has a smooth feel and stayed on after getting my arms wet. The scent was pleasant but a bit strong at first it seemed to lessen over time tho. I like the size of the bottle for backpacks, saddlebags, UTVs , tractors and more! If this product is even moderately effective it will be a game changer around my ranch and home. Once bug season starts I will update my review.
I like to water my garden in the evening after work, once it's cooled down a bit. As soon as the water hits the plants, the buggies come out to get me. I mist of this on my arms and legs and they leave me alone so I can enjoy unwinding and just relax in my yard for a bit. It's a small miracle, because getting annoyed and bitten by bugs really takes the pleasure out of gardening. I recommend this because it works, and I am so happy with it. We also tried it on a hike and it worked well, even as we got warm and a bit sweaty. Delighted with this stuff! Gifted
I really liked this scent for walking in the woods and not smelling like a chemical factory. Small size is great. It actually really helped with the bugs after a rain. Hoping all Spring the ticks will be discouraged from my shoes that I sprayed too. Didn't feel sticky or gross on the skin. So excited to keep trying as the Spring and summer bugs start popping. Gifted
First off, it's DEET-free which is awesome! Second, it contains natural ingredients. Without chemicals, Bug Botanist Mosquito Repellent Spritz stands out from similar products/competitors. Where I live, the mosquitos aren't quite around yet so I cannot attest if this product made a difference or not in keeping them away. I do like how if feels on my skin, it's not greasy. However, the smell was a little off-putting; I believe this is due to my sensitivity to smell which is why I didn't enjoy it like others have. All in all, this seems to be a great product, especially if you're looking for natural alternatives for your everyday needs. Gifted
Let me start by saying that I live in south-central Louisiana, a haven for mosquitos. Also, I appear to be like crack cocaine to mosquitos. They can't get enough of me! I don't know where they disappear to in the winter, but if I'm around, they come back out. It's not unusual for me to have several mosquito bites on me at any given time, even in the winter. When I received the Bug Botanist Mosquito Repellent, I was excited to try something new but not at all hopeful. I've used many products over the years and nothing has ever worked for me. To my shock, this product actually worked. I used it several times over the last couple of weeks while working in the garden and NOT ONE BITE! The smell is very pleasant but go easy on the application. My fiance put on a bit too much and it got all over the furniture. I wish it didn't leave a film on my skin but maybe if I rub it in better, it won't. The travel size is great too. I can easily fit it in my purse. Overall, a wonderful product that actually works. My only real complaint is that I didn't know about this brand sooner! Gifted
I recently received this product in the mail to sample and I was so excited because I got it in time to bring with me to Captiva Island Florida where the no see ums will eat you alive!! First off I was thrilled it is made up of all essential oil and had none of that nasty deet in it! The size was also perfect because I could throw in in my carry on since it was under 3.4oz and that’s also a plus that I can keep it in my crossbody bag. Well I was lazy one night going to watch the sunset and I sprayed it on the front of my legs and not on the back of them 😳. Yep that’s right the back of my legs were covered in bites ughhh. So I would definitely recommend it just don’t forget to spray it on the back of your legs lol. Gifted
