I get eaten alive by mosquitos, and I walk our dogs in a state park loaded with Deer ticks. I will not use DEET, and I will not use Frontline, Advantage, or any other class 3 carcinogen that metabolizes through the liver on my animals. I took a bottle of Repel into our holistic vet, and she said fine, just not for cats since they groom themselves. While the dogs are not crazy about the smell, for a product without harmful chemicals that works, who cares about the smell? If what I have written above doesn't convince you, it's the ONLY non-toxic insect repellent tested & recommended number ONE by Consumer Reports.

PREVIOUSLY, REPEL CONTAINED 40% LEMON EUCALYPTUS ACTIVE INGREDIENT, CURRENTLY THE BOTTLES CONTAIN ONLY 30%. THE EARLIER PRODUCTION BOTTLES HAD A VERY EFFECTIVE SPRAYER WITH A FLIP UP ARM TO STOP ANY LEAKAGE. CURRENTLY, REPEL HAS REPLACED THE EXCELLENT SPRAYER WITH A CHEAP VERSION THAT REQUIRES PRIMING BEFORE SPRAY IS EXITED AND A CHEAP CLEAR PLASTIC CAP WHICH IS EASILY KNOCKED OFF OR LOST. THIS PRODUCT IS CURRENTLY LESS EFFECTIVE AND CHEAPENED; THEREFORE, I AM RETURNING 6 OF THE UNUSED BOTTLES.

      Comments about Repel Plant Based Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, 4 fl oz:

      I really love this product. We live on the Gulf Coast of Florida and need insect repellant to be outside for any length of time. I have always hated using most other products I've tried for various reasons--toxicity, smell, mess, feeling on my skin. With this I have none of those problems. The scent is a little strong for some people but I actually like it--it smells like citrus and eucalyptus. It does not leave my skin sticky or oily, and most important, it keep the bugs away! Highly recommend! I wish they made it in bigger bottles as I go through it way too fast.

        This is a great product. I was afraid it wouldn't be as effective because it doesn't have powerful chemicals. Boy was I wrong- it works great. Used it for 2 weeks in the jungles of Thailand. I've also used it throughout the Appalachian mountains. Bugs stay well away. The bottle lasts a long time, smells good, and doesn't spray nasty chemicals all over your skin. I'm a long-time outdoorsman and highly highly recommend this product.

          Since I found this spray, I will never again use the poison Deet on myself or my grandkids! It is very strong, so I spray it on the clothing and hats. Works better than anything I've ever used before. I love it!

            This product seems to work on mosquitoes really well. We live in the South so mosquitoes are a big issue and finding a natural repellent that works is not easy. There is a strong smell to contend with, but that is true for every insect repellent I have ever used. So far this product gets a thumbs up.

              I have been a mosquito magnet all of my life and have tried everything, but nothing every worked. This actually works. For the first time, after using this, I actually went out in my garden without getting chewed alive. In fact, I did not get one single bite!
              I Love It and will never again be without it!

                        It was the middle of the road option in terms of toxicity, since I brought one with DEET and a totally herbal bug repellant. Never had to use the one with DEET b/c this one kept the bugs from biting and we were near and in the rainforests of Costa Rica.

                          We used it at a beach house surrounded by marsh and shrubs - lots of mosquitos. We sprayed ourselves, and the deck chairs and tables. Definitely keeps the mosquitos off, and the smell, while strong, isn't altogether unpleasant.

                          Do not spray it near your face or breathe it in - it really puts a choke on you. For your face, spray it in your hands and rub on. I know that sounds obvious, but this stuff travels in the wind farther than normal bug spray -- if you spray it upwind of someone it'll put the choke on them, too. In other words, it's very, very, strong.

                          One thing: we purchased several bottles, and two of the spray pumps didn't work; we ended up marrying the contents of the bottles into the ones with the working spray pumps. It's a little annoying to have a brand-new bottle that doesn't spray while the mosquitos are closing in.
