Reviews for REPEL - Anti-Insect Oil Blend
Such a better alternative to Deet
Jul 7, 2017
The use of Deet terrifies me. After reading all the horrible effects it can have (especially in children) I was very relieved that this might be an option. I was a little leery of the price tag and afraid it may not work. I was very pleased that it was effective, and plan on ordering more to keep my kiddo and myself safe! Plus, it doesn't have that greasy feel that makes you want to take a shower the second you get home from an outdoor activity.
Where has this been all my life?!?

One word. Amazing! I tried this for the first time on my husband and son when they went hunting deep into the woods. Right now ticks are everywhere and I've been searching for something to repel them. They came back after 3 days without a single bug bite and NO ticks!!!

I bought this oil for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic & it really worked at keeping the bugs at bay & I was really happy not to have to apply a product with Deet everyday. The only drawback was that applying an oil all over your body like that made you hot. I did use another natural spray some days, also called Repel which was lighter but had a very strong odor which I didn't like. (http://www.repel.com/products/personal-repellents/alternative-solutions/lemon-eucalyptus.aspx) So - my only suggestion for Jade Bloom's Repel would be to see if there was a way to lighten the heaviness of the oil because in some places like where I was you have to apply it morning/noon/night & it really raised your body temperature even after a COLD shower - you'd apply the Repel then you were hot again. All in all it is a very good product and I would buy it again and recommend it to others.

We go to Mexico every year and the parks and things we visit require natural insect repellant and sun products. I ordered this before we left and the whole bottle lasted the whole trip and I was sharing it with the 3 other couples that went with us. Not one of us was bitten by any insects!! LOVE this stuff. I highly recommend this product for any trip or everyday use!! Very impressed!!
