During the summer, I don’t leave my house without a bottle of No Natz Bug Repellent. I keep a bottle in my car and one in my purse, so I have it wherever I am. It’s amazing how quickly you’ll make friends when you’re with a group of people, plagued by gnats, flies, or mosquitoes, and you pull out a bottle of bug repellent. I love this spray because it contains some of my favorite oils, including lavender, coconut, rosemary, and lemongrass.
