Insect Repellent

Using a gentle formula and naturally derived ingredients, Young Living’s Insect Repellent drives bugs away and prevents bug bites. Made with pure essential oils and no synthetic chemical such as DEET, this nongreasy formula rubs smoothly onto skin for easy application.

Don’t let bug bites ruin your family’s outdoor fun this summer! Young Living’s Insect Repellent is tested to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas using only 100 percent naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.

Pure sesame oil and a carefully selected blend of essential oils traditionally used for their bug-repellent properties come together to make up all 99 percent of the active ingredients in this formula. The other 1 percent? Vitamin E. That means you can use it on your little ones and not worry about the synthetic chemicals used in many traditional repellents. You’ll also love the pleasant, citrusy aroma and smooth, non-greasy, non-sticky application.

Whether you’re spending time in the backyard or the backwoods, you can feel great knowing you have a pure, plant-based way to protect yourself and your loved ones.

PRODUCT BACKGROUND
Many insect repellents on the market use DEET or synthetic chemicals to keep bugs away. That’s why Young Living created a 100 percent naturally-derived, essential oil-infused alternative. In addition to the absence of DEET, Young Living’s 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 when used as directed!
