Mosquito Repellent – REPEL Plant-Based Lemon Eucalyptus

We use this instead of DEET.

Our research and experience has shown this works as good or even better than DEET on mosquitos.

  • REPEL is a legitimate DEET-FREE product. Despite historical misconceptions that naturally sourced insect repellents do not work, there are more than 40 studies carried out in multiple countries to prove otherwise. Furthermore, leading authorities worldwide support its efficacy against mosquitoes, ticks, midges and more. The US CDC (Centers for Disease Control and prevention) lists Citriodiol® as the only naturally sourced active ingredient to prevent bites from mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus.
  • What’s in it? It’s 30% Citriodiol and 30% alcohol and the rest is difficult to discern due to the current privacy laws the FDA allows for products – therefore we cannot confirm what preservatives are in REPEL. However, Jim uses it on his skin with no problems.  I have a diagnosed allergy to isothiazolinones, so I’m extremely careful about exposing my skin to products, but I use this on my clothing with no bad reaction.
  • Smells good! We both like the fragrance and the results. Bugs simply stay away.
  • It’s economical. A little bit goes a long way. With over two years of periodic use – mostly in Florida – our 4oz. bottle is still half full. No complaints.
