Ah summer, the long-awaited season when we all get to head outside with a mojito in one hand, while swatting at all the pesky mosquitos with the other. Not a great look, but that’s what it usually boils down to. And since no one wants to wear nasty DEET, along with all of its toxic chemicals, we’re happy to share these five amazing fragrances that help keep mosquitos at bay.
This uplifting and delightful lemon scent is a huge improvement from other formulas, which are both full of toxins and smell awful. And depending on the humidity, it can provide up to four hours of mosquito-free fun.
This aromatic spray is safe for pets and pregnant women alike. It’s made using water, aloe vera, polysorbate and 6 essential oils, including Citronella, Rosemary, Eucalyptus and Peppermint.
Made with 100% organic ingredients, this is something you can feel good about using on your skin. And for only $20, this is a bargain for ladies on a budget this summer.
