Is Greenerways Organic Bug Repellent Safe for Kids and Dogs?

Our best selling mosquito repellent and bug spray are all natural, USDA Organic, Non GMO, Premium Safe Repellent for kids older than 6 months and pets. And, it’s DEET FREE.

When you spray it to your clothing and skin, it will repel mosquitos, ticks, flies, chiggers, mites, sand flies, and gnats. Rest assured Greenerways Organic is safe on hiking, fishing, hunting, camping gear, and clothing.

We use all organic essential oils - Lemongrass, Cedar and Citronella. These are effective in deterring pests and also have other beneficial properties to our bodies and minds as well.

For example;

  • Lemongrass is known for helping with high blood pressure, and is a popular tool in aromatherapy to help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Cedar oil has a great soothing and calming effect on the mind. It cures inflammation and itching on the skin while relieving tension and anxiety.
  • Citronella has properties known as antibacterial, antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, deodorant, diaphoretic, diuretic, fungicidal, and is a known insect repellent.
Our products were made by our family, for our family with incredible care and dedication. We were unhappy with the toxic and chemically ridden choices we found when we were pregnant and needed a bug spray, so we set to develop our own formula with the help of Jayme’s grandmother who had been using essential oils her whole life and kept a diary about her formulas. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think!
