    This stuff is amazing! I love that it is all natural and a safe alternative to chemical laden sprays. It smells great and works wonders. We went on a family trip to the river and my son and I were the only ones not getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. I always have some on hand.

  2. Amy Jo Miller

    My 13 month old loves outdoors, which means we are constantly fighting off pests! I love that Pest Aside smells nice, is easy to put on and that it’s safe for our whole family!

  3. Beth (verified owner)

    Hubby and I use this when we go hiking at our nearby state park and when we are working in the yard. It works great! We keep at least one, if not two sticks, around all the time.

  4. Lisa R

    Super impressed at something that does the job so well and being all natural, healthy and taking away my worry.

  5. Jenna (verified owner)

    Love using it for travel as its compact and easy to use in a pinch! Of course we love the safe and effective ingredients!

  6. Margot Muenzing (verified owner)

    I only gave it four stars because although it works really well, I’m not a huge fan of the smell.

  7. Rachel Tripp (verified owner)

    This works as well or better than any store bought bug spray and I feel so much better using it on my family knowing it’s safe and not toxic chemicals!!

  8. Naturalmama (verified owner)

    I love the smell and natural ingredients. So far this has worked better for me and my 19 month old than any other combo of EOs or *truly* natural bug spray.

  9. Dana Bobbit (verified owner)

    Works great on the whole family.. the bugs get pretty nasty in Illinois. My 2yr old did get hold of it and covered himself in it once.. which was a mess- but it all washed out of his clothes! It’s a bit messier to put on than a spray but we like to avoid toxins so I say it’s worth it!

  10. Rachel Wynn (verified owner)

    So glad we found this product. I never liked putting the chemical bug repellents on myself or my kids. Myself and several of my children are allergic to mosquitoes and they love us. Going outside in the spring and summer is no longer a hassle. Thank you so much for a wonderful, natural product that works!!!!
