Perfect for Traveling
I bought this roll on for a solo trip to Wyoming. It was absolutely perfect for the trip. I was able to keep it in my purse while on the go, and could apply at anytime and know that it wouldn't spill out.

It's a shoe-in.
I didn't get a chance to use it on either myself of my daughter this summer, but it's citronella from RMO, so you know it's going to work because of the established track record of citronella, and you know it's going to be extremely high quality because of RMO. It's a shoe-in.

Very happy with this product!
I have been liking for a natural bug repellant for some time, we have tried several and have not been impressed with the product or the results. Until now! This bug repellant works wonderfully well, is easy and convenient to use. I highly recommend this.

is this safe for pregnant women?
Samantha L L on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Essential oils are very beneficial for our bodies most of the time. However, pregnancy is a special time when customers need to be aware of some changing circumstances. We recommend that any pregnant or breastfeeding customers consult with a medical professional, midwife or aromatherapist before using essential oils during this time.

Does Bug Away keep ticks away, too?

What’s the difference between your bug off blend & bug away blend? We have bug off & would like to continue use? Did you add another oil? Reason for change?
Eileen T on Jun 4, 2018

Bug Away is a superior blend that we have created that would benefit better and it is much safer to use for children since it does not carry Eucalyptus.
