Product Background

Most insect repellents on the market use DEET or harsh chemicals to keep bugs away. That’s way Young Living created a 100% naturally derived, essential oil-infused alternative. In addition to not containing DEET, this Insect Repellent is formulated without parabens, fillers, phthalates, petrochemicals, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic colorants. It’s even gentle enough to use on kids!

  1. “A new study shows that mosquitoes can rapidly learn and remember the smells of hosts and that dopamine is a key mediator of this process. The study proved a mosquito’s preference can shift if that person’s smell is associated with an unpleasant sensation.”

    I imagine that turning “that person’s smell” itself into an “unpleasant sensation” would cause an even more dramatic effect. Enter Young Living Insect Repellent.
