It works!
Review by Delilah on 7/11
It works!

I was hesitant to buy this because of the price and other natural sprays were cheaper but didn't have as good reviews as this. I'm so glad I got this one! It works! Smells great and really keeps the mosquitos and bugs away. A little spray goes a long way! I had sprayed this on & later went inside, my 18 yr old cat started rubbing all over me, trying to lick me, just acting crazy. I thought well she's acting weird, wonder why? I remembered this spray has catnip in it lol. Kiwi loves it as much as I do!

Works Really Well
Review by Maralina on 1/4
Works Really Well

I have sweet blood and this worked great! Doesn't feel sticky and smells really strongly of lemongrass, which is 1000x better than stinking of deet (plus, it won't mess up my nail polish).

Need to order some more because everyone wanted to use my awesome smelling bug spray instead of the super stinky normal ones.

Works Great

Will reorder

I received this product as my monthly Mighty Fix earlier this summer and honestly, I forgot about it until recently. Mosquitoes are a bug (my phone autocorrected from "big" but I'm leaving it haha) problem in my midwest city, but insect repellent is a product I generally forget exists and never have on hand. Absentmindedly scratching a bite a few weeks ago, I remembered this bottle. And man, I've been scratching unnecessarily all summer. This stuff really works. I'm sitting out on my balcony, immediately following a storm. My potted plants are all full of moisture, an attractive breeding ground for nuisance. Yet I'm watching mosquitoes hover briefly over my arm and then fly far far away. I'm trying to be humorous, but not even remotely hyperbolic. Where has this been all my life? In seriousness, I'll note the scent is strong and lingering. I imagine some would consider it overwhelming. But it's not unpleasant, and not nearly as offensive as other sprays. I will definitely reorder next year and use it all summer.

This Works!

Ordering More TODAY! AMAZED.

Ordering More TODAY! AMAZED.

Living on 12 acres in the country can be tough, especially for pesky mosquitos . After trying literally every natural bug spray, making my own, and continuing to get ate up....we tried this. WOW. I have used a 3oz bottle in a week (not really knowing a little goes a long way) and am reordering today. This is the ONLY natural bug spray I have used myself and my children that has worked with 0 bites....yes 0. I am so impressed. It's not greasy, doesn't sting like alcohol-based sprays, and has a great smell. So thankful we found this.

This stuff works!
Review by deb c on 6/21
This stuff works!

I have only used this for the biting gnat attacks we have in Utah every Spring and Summer. For two gnat seasons, this has been the only natural repellent that has been effective at keeping the flying vicious critters at bay. This year, the gnat population has exploded requiring DEET repellent, head nets or LifeStings Repellent to be able to enjoy the outdoors! LifeStings for the win!

Review by T Lewis on 9/7

Very effective! My kids were getting eaten alive at camp this summer until we started using this.

I'm impressed!!
Review by Christine Smith on 8/8
I'm impressed!!

Not only does this spray smell wonderful and does not bother my chronic migraine disorder, but it seriously WORKS. My beau and I love it and enjoy the deck and fires in the back yard much more now. And the cats like it but don't go crazy all over us!! Lol
The single reason I don't give it 5 stars is the price point- at over $12 for a3oz. spray, it is the most expensive insect repellent I've ever purchased. I do understand that purchasing from small companies does mean higher prices, and I am DEFINITELY more than willing to pay more for a high quality product that is toxin free, but I still wish the bottle was a little larger. That being said, if I look on my porch at all the different bottles of other DEET products we are not using, I could have purchased more of this product in the past and been ahead.
I love it. Really, get some. bugs but lots of cats?
Review by Hailey on 6/2 bugs but lots of cats?

Maybe the bugs are gone but seriously the cats won’t leave me alone !!! 😂😂😂 catnip oil is the main ingredient. Wouldn’t wear at a backyard bbq again unless I want another night of being followed around and assaulted by cats 🐈

Smells good but only half full!
Review by Corrie on 7/18
Smells good but only half full!

I was excited to try this product but the bottle was only half full. It had a tape seal on it but the seal was to sealing anything! Disappointed that I paid $11 for half a bottle of product when it's only a 3 oz bottle to begin with.
