Enjoy the outdoors in peace with our plant-powered Bug Botanist Mosquito Repellents. Thoughtfully-designed and rigorously tested, our simply effective Repellents will help you explore more of what you love, all while keeping your safety top of mind.

Our naturally derived Mosquito Repellent formula is rooted in a scientifically proven-effective blend of six essential oils to repel mosquitoes. We’re also free from DEET and added parabens, meaning Bug Botanist is safe for use around kids & pets when used as directed.

At Bug Botanist, we can’t help but nerd out over bugs and plants. And while we respect creepy crawlies of all kinds, bugs are often unwelcome around our bodies and in our homes. That’s why we’re inspired by the ingenuity of nature to craft effective remedies using plant-powered active ingredients that you can feel good about.

  • How to Use

    Simply shake the bottle, remove the cap and spray on skin. Reapply every 90 minutes, or as needed. Avoid contact with eyes, and do not spray on your pets or plants!

  • FAQ
    • How often should I reapply the repellent?

      After 90 minutes you should consider reapplying - maybe sooner, if you’re sweating up a storm.

    • Are your repellents safe to use on kids?

      We know you want to keep your little ones bug-free, but you shouldn’t use our repellent products on children under six months of age. Always follow the instructions on the label. For older kids, we recommend putting the repellent on your hands first, and then applying it to their skin – so that they don’t rub their eyes and get irritated. That could ruin the whole day.

    • Once I’m done with the bottle, can I recycle it?

      Check with your local recycling agency. Each municipality has their own guidance for what can be recycled. No matter what, you’ll need to remove the trigger and pump, as they have metal components.

    • Why do I need bug repellent?

      Some people find they can get along just fine without bug repellent. Good for them! The rest of us need a bit more protection (especially as the weather heats up), but we wanted a natural option that was plant-powered and effective. Bug repellents can help prevent bites that ruin a perfectly good afternoon!

    • Can I use your products on my face?

      For sure. Please spray it on your hands first and rub it in, just to avoid spraying into your eyes, mouth or nose.

    • Can I wear repellent with sunscreen?

      You sure can. We would recommend putting on the sunscreen first.

    • Why don’t you guys use DEET in your repellents?

      While DEET is effective, it can damage plastics and some people do not like the smell. So to keep things simple, we use essential oils and other ingredients.

    • The product says that it has a “pleasant scent”. I agree – but does that mean you added fragrance to it?

      No! There are no added parabens, phthalates, sulfates, dyes or artificial fragrances. Just geraniol, lemongrass and other ingredients that happen to smell really nice, if we do say so ourselves.

    • How do you test your repellent?

      We test our formula on humans (with their permission, of course!). We put our formula on their arms and test how long the mosquitoes stay away!

    • Are your products organic and chemical-free?

      While our products are not organic, they do contain essential oils and natural plant oils – which are technically considered chemicals.

  • Sustainability

    Our White PET bottles are recyclable, as long as the black trigger/pump, cap, and label are removed first. Place the bottle in your plastic recycling or single-stream container.

    The triggers and pumps include a small metal spring, and that pesky spring prevents the trigger from being recyclable. Remove the label before you recycle the bottle.
