EcoSmart Organic Bug Repellent Review

I love so many aspect of nature, but bugs are not one of them. I wasn’t always this way, because as a child in Japan we would go catch bugs and even keep them as pets (i.e. Japanese beetles). And it’s not that I have anything against bugs themselves, I just cringe if they are on me or in my house. The obstacle I have found, however, is in finding natural home pest control, that is safe for my daughter, family, pets and the environment.


EcoSmart is proof that I am not alone in wanting a product that is both natural and effective, as they have been researching their products for 15 years. They use modern science combined with essential plant oils to for a spectrum of organic bug repellents to treat your home, lawn and even spray-on insect repellents for a day at the park. I like a lot of things I have learned about their products, but the following information (also found on their website) really put my mind at ease and gave me a sense of trust with these products:

Since EcoSMART’s proprietary botanical oil blends attack attributes that are specific only to pests, they have no effect on people, pets or the environment. The primary active ingredients in EcoSMART products are approved as Direct Food Additives or classified as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. These oils are commonly used to add flavor and aroma to many cosmetic, beverage and food products, including cake, candy, sweetener, gum, soft drinks, and lipstick. Children and pets are safe. No need to clear them out after application or be concerned if they are near our products. Our products have no adverse effect on mammals, birds, and fish and also will not contaminate water sources.


I was able to review their insect repellent and although it’s got a nice whiff to it, I can actually make out a lot of the scents I smell! I can’t say that about most organic bug repellent products I have seen or used on the market. Cinnamon, Lemongrass and a hint of Rosemary…it’s a product I feel safe putting my myself and especially on my daughter. Although you should always keep these products out of the reach of children, they are a much safer and an organic alternative to synthetic chemicals and pesticides to safety store in your home. Missouri is a very “buggy” state and the ticks are especially overpopulated so I am excited to have a product I feel is safe for my daughter’s skin, yet will keep her as bug-free as possible.

I am also anxious to try the other product in their line for lawn care when it warms up and to try the Home Pest Control spray as an added barrier I can use in the house in those entry points like the doorways where bugs always seem to squeeze their way in. I am excited to have found a line of product I can use to effectively keep bugs at bay, without the guilt of the ingredients in them when using them around my family.

Save! 
Buy more and save more on their
website store. This is an easy task as $45+ gets you free shipping so you’ll want to stock up and take advantage of that. Spring is just around the corner so you’ll want to be well prepared!


A sample of the insect repellent was provided by EcoSmart for this review.
