EcoSmart Organic Insect Repellent -- 6 fl oz
dengue free and optimistic
This product is fantastic. I live in a subtropical country, and there is a risk of contracting dengue from mosquitoes. I used to get covered in bites, and didn't like my options (long thick pants or chemical sprays). Anyway, I've been using this product for the last 6 months or so, and it really does keep the mosquitoes off of my feet/legs. Sometimes they buzz around my ankles, land, and then fly off after a second, deciding that the scent of wintergreen is most unsavory.

not as effective
I bought this because I thought it would be a good alternative to ones with deet. One problem I have is that it doesn't smell very pleasant but I'm willing to overlook that for the health benefits. It doesn't work as well as other bug sprays either. But it is decent for an all natural product.

Didnt work well
My husband and I used this spray since we needed an organic bug spray. It did not work. We went to Playa Del Carmen Mexico for our Honeymoon recently and we got eaten alive by mosquitos! i have over 150 bites on my body and my husband has over 200! We look crazy and I cant wear shorts or a dress until the bites heal cause they are all over my legs ,etc. We had to go to doctor to get steroidal itch cream since we cant stop itching. Unfortunately this product DID NOT work.

Better than OFF! insect repellent
For my entire lifetime, mosquitoes have hunted me and attacked me like a never-ending plague, leaving countless red, inflamed, severely itchy bumps behind. My reactions are so bad that the bites become like large cysts that take days or even weeks to go away, even making me lose sleep because the horrible itch awakens me at night or early in the morning. Needless to say, I hate mosquitoes!! I have always used DEET-based repellents with very high concentrations of the chemical because I thought I needed a nuclear bomb-type of defense. This past summer has been an unusually wet one, and the mosquitoes have replicated like zombies. They, and biting flies of the black and green-striped variety, have been out in full force, biting me relentlessly despite my skin being saturated with DEET (Off). So, in desperation, and out of worry for all of the chemicals being applied to my dermis, I looked up natural repellents and gave this one a try. WOW is all I can say. Not a single bite - EVER - with this stuff on. It smells wonderful, sprays on more evenly than those chemical spray cans, and is much more effective. It does not make the skin sticky, and it repels them so well that I happily run around outside at all hours, encased in my own little force field. I just paid for another bottle of this magical cure. I wish I had found it sooner. I can use it on my children, too, without worries. Now I no longer have to limit my outdoor activities because of those infernal miniscule vampires.
