I began making bug spray because I was concerned about the effects of DEET based products and the potential impact on myself and my family.  I developed this formula using essential oils that have been shown to have repellant effects against ticks, mosquitos and biting flies.  

I made this product with a blend of EOs of Geranium, Lemon Eucalyptus, Citronella, Lavender, Alaskan Yellow Cypress, Cedarwood, Spearmint, and Lemongrass.  

Each oil used has been calculated to be within the safe topical application limits, as defined in "Essential Oil Safety, Second Edition" by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.

You will find other all-natural bug repellants on the market, but many of them contain essential oils that are not recommended for use on children under age 10, such as clove bud oil, peppermint, wintergreen, rosemary and others.  

This is the bug spray that our family uses.

Legal and Safety Information:

This product is not registered with the EPA, as products using essential oils are considered by the EPA to be "generally recognized as safe.

From Consumer Reports:

How to Use Repellents Safely
All repellents can cause side effects, especially if you apply too much of it or too often. For example, they can all cause rashes and skin irritation. In addition, deet might cause disorientation, particularly in high concentrations, which is why we don't recommend repellents that are more than 30 percent deet.

So use all repellents with care. Here's how:

Apply just enough to cover exposed skin, and only for as long as needed.
Don’t use it on wounds, cuts, or broken or irritated skin.
Never put it on under your clothes.
For your face, spray it on your palms first, then rub it in, avoiding your eyes and mouth, and using sparingly around ears.
Adults should put it on children, since children often put their hands in their eyes and mouths.
Don’t use near food, and wash hands after application and before eating or drinking.
At the end of the day, wash treated skin with soap and water, and wash treated clothing in a separate wash before wearing again.
Wash repellent off your skin and launder treated clothes.
