When you are enjoying a warm summer evening or exploring the great outdoors, the last thing you want to worry about is getting a bug bite. But if you hate the smell of traditional bug spray or want to avoid using DEET, then our Bug Away Neat blend is just what you need.

Bug Away is a specially crafted blend of Citronella, Cedarwood Atlas, Lavender, Lemongrass, and Thyme, a combination of oils that is designed to help keep pesky bugs away from you and your family. Although Bug Away smells citrusy and fresh to us, bugs can’t stand it! Each essential oil in this blend has powerful insect repellent properties, and together, they create a blend that makes it easy for you to avoid bug bites in a safe and natural way.

This Bug Away blend offers the same best-selling formula in our Kids Collection, but in a neat (undiluted) blend. This makes it perfect for creating your own DIY natural bug spray, or for diffusing around the picnic table or campsite. Although Bug Away is designed to help prevent mosquitoes and insects from biting your skin, it may also help deter bugs from invading your outdoor living space when diffused or sprayed around your tent.
