Zack & Nack's is made from all natural ingredients from plants, such as peppermint, lemongrass, clove and soybean oil and geraniol (made from roses and geraniums). All the essential oils are food-grade, making them even safer. There's no DEET or ingredients you have to worry about your children over age 1 using (for younger kids, check with your pediatrician before using the spray). I'm always leery of DEET and other chemicals being on M2 so that is the first thing that drew me to Zack & Nack's. It's safe for clothes and skin. Even with my crazy sensitive skin, I don't have any reaction at all.
As you can probably tell from the ingredients I mentioned, unlike many bug sprays, it also smells great. Really, it's more of a perfume than a bug spray! It smells fresh and light, not at all chemical or medicinal. I've been tempted to spray it on to use as a perfume, to be honest. M2 always asks to put it on when she sees the bottle because she thinks it actually is perfume! She'll stand there smelling her arms once it's on. We don't feel like we have to take a bath or change clothes from the smell as soon as we come in like with traditional sprays.
Best of all, the spray actually WORKS. I'm often leery of products that claim to be all natural and work yet am amazed and really impressed with Zack & Nack's. Flies, gnats, mosquitoes and no-see-ums leave us alone. We tested it out when apple picking a few weeks ago. Usually, we all end up covered in bites the next day. A and I both used it while M2 had a fit that day and refused to. The only one of us with any bites was M2. Throughout our walk through the orchard, none of us had bugs flying in our faces making us want to run for the car. When I sit out on the deck at night, I spray some on then as well and am left alone. The other night when I forget, I was swarmed as soon as I walked out the door. I gave up and came back in for the night, annoyed by all the bugs. I should have used the spray!
Zack & Nack's DEET-free, natural bug spray and am going to be using it often. Check it out for yourselves over at Amazon, dear readers! Spray it on when you're sitting out on the deck, sitting around a bonfire roasting marshmallows, chasing the kids in the yard, picking apples for some yummy pie, fishing, hunting, camping (not having to wash if off comes in handy!), hiking -- any time you're outdoors.
