Positively Non-Toxic - Bug Spray

I recently shared a photo of a new item - our natural and non-toxic bug spray, and the response was surprising. I have always, and I mean ALWAYS, been the main victim of every mosquito in the area. I'm talking, the bites were so bad that my entire leg would swell up within minutes - don't believe me, ask any one of my family members.


Last summer, when I was thick into our fertility journey, we were going on a camping trip in the Sierras for an entire week and I was worried I was going to get eaten alive but also worried about using the same products we had used my entire life. I had mentioned it to my mom that I wanted to maybe make my own bug spray, I was worried about the toxins and chemicals in the bug sprays affecting our chances of conceiving. And low and behold, that sweet angel of a mother, made us some bug spray. And guess what, IT WORKED! And still works to this day!


I recently re-looked up DEET on google and this is what pops up:


"Most cases of serious side effects caused by DEET involve long-term, heavy, frequent or whole-body application of the repellent. But for some people, DEET can lead to adverse skin reactions, seizures and brain malfunction, fatigue, respiratory conditions and possibly even cancer."


OK, rewind. "But for SOME PEOPLE, deep can lead to ADVERSE SKIN REACTIONS, SEIZURES, and BRAIN MALFUNCTION, FATIGUE, RESPIRATORY CONDITIONS and possibly EVEN CANCER."


Re-read that again. Even if those are the outcomes for some people, why would we feel comfortable using that? Absolutely, hard pass.



Our bug spray is simple, clean and it smells good so you won't be smelling like a walking mass of nasty chemicals. To join our pre order list please click the button below and add your information to be contacted, when available!
