Bug Soother is a natural* insect repellent made with essential oils that actually work! Unlike the big names, we’re DEET-free and made with skin-loving ingredients!

Bug Soother is so safe that it can be used as an insect repellent for pets and young children, when used as directed. Our formula is gentle on the skin, but tough on bugs.

Proudly made in the USA, Bug Soother has a light lemon and vanilla scent. No harsh chemical odors, but bugs hate it!

Our formula has less than 2% scent — while big name brands have nearly 10%!

Bug Soother is gentle on skin and leaves no oily residue. But mosquitos and insects will stay far away.

Why Bug Soother?

We created Bug Soother because we believe in using skin-loving ingredients that smell great, but bugs HATE! The strength and odor of leading bug repellents can make people hate putting it on because it stinks and can be irritating to your skin.

Bug Soother is made with 100% essential oil and simple, skin-nourishing ingredients. Our natural insect repellent keeps mosquitos, gnats, and more off of your body.
