I have always been a big fan of Fit Organic, a company that makes household cleaning products that are USDA Certified Organic. All of their products are top notch with high quality, plant based ingredients. Not only do these products clean exceptionally well, but they are also nontoxic and completely safe for the environment and people (even safe to use around infants)!
I was ecstatic to learn about their newly launched mosquito repellent. Straight from the Fit Organic website: “Using a combination of organic lemongrass, and organic oleic acid our mosquito repellent provides equal protection to DEET for up to three hours WITHOUT any harsh chemicals.” Wow, sounds too good to be true! But it isn’t… They provide the lab results to back up those claims on their website. The testing was done in Brazil, and it shows that their repellent is effective for at least three hours against the mosquitoes that carry malaria, West Nile virus, and even Zika virus!

They are offering free shipping through their website if you purchase two bottles of repellent, so I went ahead and bought two of course (go big or go home)! Here is the link to purchase: http://www.fitorganic.com/products/fit-organic-6-76-oz-mosquito-repellent
So, you want to know what I think about this repellent…? It’s AMAZING! I live near the delta in the Bay Area, and there are TONS of mosquitoes out here. It gets very hot at night during the summer and sometimes I leave the back door open for cool air. I used to have a big problem with lots of mosquitoes coming in the house, but they are nowhere to be found now that I spray the mosquito repellent over the perimeter of the door opening.
My step father also tested this repellent while he was on a fishing boat, he said that it worked like a charm. Not only mosquitoes, but ALL insects that normally plagued him while he is out on the water were deterred by this product.
Fit Organic is also super friendly and very approachable; they are honest about their ingredients (which are always CERTIFIED ORGANIC!) and always open to answer any questions or concerns. I love when you can trust a company through and through to provide safe, effective products. Thank you Fit Organic!
