Organic Insect Repellent

Say goodbye to DEET.  That nasty insecticide has no place on our body. Toxicity concerns with DEET are well known but it is still widely used. You can confidently step away from using DEET however with these safe, natural and effective alternatives.

Citronella and lemongrass oil are the hero ingredients in most natural insect repellents. Make sure whatever products you buy contain citronella or lemongrass oil and aren’t just ‘citronella scented’. Those who think citronella doesn’t work may have bought misleading products.

Our natural insect repellents come in both sprays and creams/balms. While most have a citronella scent some use essential oils so the citronella isn’t the only thing you are smelling. Eco Tan has a peppermint smelling spray and Meow Meow Tweet has a lovely floral scent from lavender oil which mixes with the lemongrass oil well.

Which natural insect repellent is for you? Depends what you are looking for! Here are some recommendations to get you started.

Long Lasting –Typically the sprays last only a few hours and will need to be reapplied for prolonged use. If you want something longer lasting go for a cream such as Natural Wonders mozzie and midge moose.

On the goOuch sprays are convenient and portable and effective for on the go use!

Sensitive skin – Natural Wonders (baby not tropical strength) midge and mozzie moose is the best suited for sensitive skin.

Certified Organic – Biologikas bug another, Eco Tans outdoor spray and Eco Kids bug-a-bug are all certified organic.

Vegan – Meow Meow Tweets herbal insect repellent and Physic Gardens bug balm are both vegan.

Australian Made – Natural Wonders midge and mozzie moose and Eco Kids Bug-a-Bug are both proudly Australian Made.

For Kids – All these products are safe for kids but for young ones Natural Wonders (baby not tropical strength) midge and mozzie moose can be used from one month. Eco kid is another option for older kids as it is the lightest, mildest spray alternative.

Below you will also notice bite relief balms and sprays. Ouch sting relief is a must for any extended outdoor adventure. It is convenient and provides effective relief from insect bites, sunburn and jellyfish stings. Other soothing balms are great to keep at home for when you want relief form any sore or itchy bites. I have a love of aloe vera based products for this purpose but different products work just as well.
