Dr. Mercola's Bug Spray

Specially formulated to repel mosquitoes, fleas, chiggers, ticks, and other biting insects. 100% natural, DEET-free anti-insect spray. 

Don't let those annoying, buzzing, and biting insects spoil your outdoor activities. Dr. Mercola Bug Spray is the safe, all-natural alternative to other chemical-laden outdoor anti-bug sprays. Applied liberally, Bug Spray sends those bugs running for the hills so you can play, fish, work or just enjoy being outdoors without worry.

DEET-Free

Research shows that prolonged exposure to DEET can impair cell function in parts of your brain. Heavy exposure to DEET and other insecticides can cause eye and skin irritation, memory loss, headaches, weakness, fatigue, muscle/joint pain, nausea, tremors and shortness of breath.

Dr. Mercola's Bug Spray is completely chemical-free; safe for you and for the environment. 

Dr. Mercola's Bug Spray is Natural and Great Smelling!

Citronella, lemongrass oil, and peppermint oil have been known to be effective bug deterrents for many years. Many people also consider pure vanillin to be effective against mosquitoes. 

Citronella: Oil of citronella has been used for over 50 years as an insect repellent. It protects you from insects without harming or killing them. Citronella's distinctive odor may make it difficult for pests to locate a host. Oil of citronella has been used extensively since 1948 without reports of adverse side effects or concern.

Lemongrass Oil: Lemongrass oil is an herb widely cultivated in the tropics and subtropics, long appreciated for its ability to repel insects. It has an amazingly fresh, earthy and lemony scent. The amount of citral, the aldehyde responsible for its lemon scent, determines its quality.

Please Note: If you have sensitivity to lemongrass, please do not use this product.

Peppermint Oil: Researchers in India – a nation with a large mosquito problem – discovered that peppermint oil is effective as more than a flavoring or digestive aid. It also repels adult mosquitoes and kills the larvae. It has been particularly effective against the Anopheles culicifacies mosquito, which is a tyrannical menace in the northern plains of India.

Vanillin: Vanillin (the real deal, not imitation vanilla!) is also considered a substance that keeps bugs at bay, and is included in the Bug Spray formulation.

This potent, insect repelling combination of 100% natural ingredients has a very pleasant smell! 

Because Dr. Mercola's Bug Spray doesn't contain neurotoxins or other dangerous or suspicious ingredients, you can apply generously without fear of reactions or long-term issues. Caveat: Do not use this product if you are sensitive to lemongrass.

Directions:

Shake well before applying. For best results, apply liberally to exposed skin, especially your ankles, legs, arms, and hairline. Re-apply every 2-3 hours, or more often as needed. For added protection apply to clothing.

8 fl oz bottle with pumper/mister.


Ingredients:

Citronella, lemongrass oil, and peppermint oil have been known to be effective bug deterrents for many years. Many people also consider pure vanillin to be effective against mosquitoes. But vanilla combined with citronella, lemongrass oil, and peppermint oil -- now there's a smart combination.

Citronella:
Oil of citronella has been used for over 50 years as an insect repellent. It protects you from insects without harming or killing them. Citronella's distinctive odor may make it difficult for pests to locate a host. Oil of citronella has been used extensively since 1948 without reports of adverse side effects or concern.

Lemongrass Oil:
Lemongrass oil is an herb widely cultivated in the tropics and subtropics, long appreciated for its ability to repel insects. It has an amazingly fresh, earthy and lemony scent. The amount of citral, the aldehyde responsible for its lemon scent, determines its quality.

If you have sensitivity to lemongrass, please do not use this product.

Peppermint Oil:
Researchers in India -- a nation with a large mosquito problem -- discovered that peppermint oil is effective as more than a flavoring or digestive aid. It also repels adult mosquitoes and kills the larvae. It has been particularly effective against the Anopheles culicifacies mosquito, which is a tyrannical menace in the northern plains of India.

Vanillin:
Vanillin (the real deal, not imitation vanilla!) is also considered a substance that keeps bugs at bay, and is included in the BUG OFF formulation.

Naturally-occurring sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate are included as natural preservatives to prevent bacterial growth. Sodium benzoate occurs naturally in cranberries, prunes, plums, cinnamon, ripe cloves, and apples.  It is this food-form of sodium benzoate that's in BUG OFF.

Because Dr. Mercola's BUG OFF doesn't contain neurotoxins or other dangerous or suspicious ingredients, you can apply generously without fear of reactions or long-term issues.

Note: Do not use this product if you are sensitive to lemongrass.
