Herbal Insect Repellent Essential Oil Blend


Herbal Insect Repellent - all natural DEET free - new fresh batch April 2024

10 mL size in amber glass bottle with convenient dropper cap.  A Do-It-Yourself option. You can add this concentrated pure essential oil blend to water, cream, aloe vera (which is what we use in our spray) and make an all-purpose bug repellent. I use this around my baseboards when the ants start trying to come in during the spring and summer. Please don't spray on or around bees - we need them!!

  •  We have researched and tested this blend for many years and it works. 
  • Previously named Bugz Off but had to change the name due to trademark issues with S. C. Johnson.
  • You can buy our organic aloe vera based Herbal Insect Repellent spray, Herbal Insect Repellent cream or Herbal Insect Repellent pet spray on this website.
  • Dilute in choice of carrier oil, water, or other diluent for a do-it-your-self option.  
  • Field-tested, globally tested and proven to be effective - from Northern Minnesota, Louisiana, Africa  - and more.
  • Effective against chiggers, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and flies, sand fleas (according to testimonials) and safe for pets and children - use as per instructions.
  • Safe around children and pets - in fact we encourage you to use this on them as mosquitoes carry health risks. Don't spray directly into their face or your face. Simply spray onto your hands and pat your face and neck.


Essential oils used in this blend include pure aromatherapeutic essential oils, 100% undiluted, which contribute to the light lemon scent, including a blend of pure essential oils of Lemongrass, Texas Cedarwood, Citronella, Geranium, Catnip, Lemon Eucalyptus, Palmarosa, Basil, Patchouli, Litsea cubeba, Tea Tree, Bulgarian lavender and Peppermint.

See usage recommendations in the tabs below. See our "testimonials" under our natural herbal bug spray product

Mostly we sell the spray and lotion containing this very effective insect repellent. But if you are a do-it-yourself person, we also make this concentrated, undiluted blend of essential oils available for you to add to your own choice of oils, spray or creams. Do not use this blend undiluted.

Ingredients in this blend include Lemongrass, Cedarwood (Texas), Geranium, Thyme, Citronella, Rosemary ct Linalool, Peppermint and Lemon eucalyptus.

SAFETY/USAGE: (Do not use if pregnant or lactating)
This is an undiluted concentrated blend of well-known essential oils that have been shown to be very effective at deterring pests such as ants, mosquitoes, flies, gnats, and ticks. Dilute this blend into your own choice of carrier. For our Camping and Hiking Outdoor Spray, we add 4 grams to 8 oz of a mixture of aloe vera and witch hazel, which is a little less than one teaspoon of the blend. We suggest doing a test in a small area of your skin and see if there is any irritation. We have found that petroleum based products do not allow for the essential oil to be absorbed into your skin, so we recommend a naturally-based product. You can also put this into a spray bottle with water or aloe vera which is what we use in our insect spray that we sell. Lemongrass and Thyme both can be irritating to the skin so test whatever combination you use first. Always shake the bottle (if you are making a spray) prior to use since water does not mix with essential oils.

We have years of testimonials from people who swear by our spray - found here. Take a minute to look at the testimonial tab there. If you use this, please let us know how it works for you.
