Natural Bug Sprays That Work

Stop Bugging Me: Nice-Smelling, Natural Insect Repellents

If you don't think there's anything sweet about smelling like a big ol' spray can of DEET at barbecues and garden parties, take heart. There are plenty of natural alternatives that actually work. First, Badger Balm's Organic Anti-Bug Balm ($9), which gets rave reviews from us — on a recent vacation, one member of Team Bella found that it protected her better than regular chemical repellent did.

If you'd prefer a spray, there's California Baby Natural Bug Blend ($13), which is nontoxic and made with organic ingredients as well. For people who love towelettes, there are BugBand Bug Repelling Towelettes ($7), which are made with bug-repelling geranium extract that also happens to smell great on people. And if you're running to the drugstore quickly to pick something up? Try Burt's Bees Herbal Insect Repellent ($8), which blends citronella, lemongrass, and rosemary for a lovely, light scent that bugs hate.
