Burt's Bees Herbal Insect Repellant is a 100% natural blend of bug-fighting oils that repels even the most stubborn of pests. Rosemary, Lemongrass, and Citronella oils mix with 5 other oils that bugs hate, creating an all-natural solution for keeping them away. Since there's no DEET in this formula, it's safer to use around children and pets.

Herbal Insect Repellent features rosemary, an aromatic shrub with scaly bark and leathery, needle-like leaves yielding a pungent pine-like aroma with a woody, camphor note.

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Herbal Insect Repellent is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I like Burt's Bees Insect Repellent because there are no dangerous chemicals in it. It smells good and it really works! I'm only sorry I cannot spray it directly on my head because the repellent consists of 9 different oils. The noseeums attack my head like crazy. Maybe they confuse me with a deer, because I'm blond? I have to wear a tight fitting hat and spray on my ears, forehead and neck to keep the bugs away from my hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good The can sprays out dripping oil, which stays real oily on your skin. Didn't care for it because of that reason, as for the bugs....I 'm not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff smells very nice; quite effective. I live in a wooded area and it is as effective as anything else we have tried. An oil that has to be rubbed into the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love this product! I absolutely love this product it smells great. this product really works. we live in Georgia where there are terrible gnats. We live in a low land area where there are mosquitoes and this stuff works. the best part about it is that it's all natural. I feel very secure in use it on my little children. but I do wish that it was a little bit cheaper. other than the price I think this is a great product and would highly recommend it especially if you have a gnat problem!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells strong but works good My husband jokes when me and my 21 mnt old daughter wear this that bugs, and no one else for that matter, wants to come around us! I personally like the smell. It is oily, but I use oils on my skin anyway so that doesn't bother me. I don't think it stops all bites, but really cuts back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Little oily We are just now getting into mosquito season, but this seems to work ok. The reason I won't give it higher ratings is because it is oily I prefer lighter sprays like California baby so I don't feel the need to wipe my hands after spraying. This also doesn't spray well so you must rub it in which gets the oil all over your hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Product! I purchased this product for the first time and I will definitely buy more than one in my next order so that I have extra. It works beautifully and smells great! Not even one bite! Awesome!
