The Bug Stuff means natural protection from bugs

The Bug Stuff: All Natural Mosquito, Fly & Tick Repellant gives you protection from annoying and biting insects, without the chemicals! Enjoy this DEET-free protection made with organic essential oils in 8 ounce ready-to-use amber glass spray, or a 4 ounce double-refill in an amber glass bottle. Use The Bug Stuff when you want to enjoy the outdoors in a chemical free way.

How does The Bug Stuff work?

The Bug Stuff uses a blend of powerful organic essential oils to repel many common biting insects found in the United States. Simple Apothecary has also added organic vanilla extract to repel flies, witch hazel to help disperse the oils in water, and glycerin to keep the oils on the surface of fabrics so they stay effective longer.

Why a natural bug repellant?

While there is no definitive link from the use of DEET to cancer, many people are concerned exposure to it. For many it's a matter of, why take the risk when there are known safer alternatives? The Bug Stuff: All Natural Mosquito, Fly & Tick Repellant is one of those safer alternatives. You also have the option to spray The Bug Stuff on your clothing, rather than skin, so you don't absorb all of the oils.

How do I use The Bug Stuff: All Natural Mosquito, Fly & Tick Repellant?

The Bug Stuff: All Natural Mosquito, Fly & Tick Repellant should only be used diluted, never as the concentrate. Spray The Bug Stuff on your clothing and shoes, concentrating on the areas nearest skin. You can also spray The Bug Stuff on nearby fabrics, such as a chair or tent.
