Simply...Organica Review & Giveaway


Summertime in the south brings about many things, including the swarms of mosquitoes. There are many known factors attracting mosquitoes to a yard, but sometimes no matter what you do, they just keep coming... and biting. Since we spend a lot of time outdoors, especially in the evenings when mosquitoes are particularly bad, I went searching for repellents. To my dismay, most contain DEET, a chemical that is NOT considered safe for children and infants. I learned that DEET can cause seizures, death, skin reactions, and even toxicity to fish in some water environments. YIKES! I don't want that on my skin or my children's! After searching in stores without luck, I went to the internet and found a wonderful store!
Simply...Organica is an online store dedicated to using all-natural ingredients that are not only safe for your body, but they are also eco-friendly. Kelly, the owner of Simply...Organica, is a resident of Florida so, she knows a thing or two about pesky mosquitoes! 10 years ago she began making organic skincare items for friends and over time it has evolved into Simply...Organica. She is passionate about teaching others, especially moms and moms-to-be, about the importance of toxin-free skincare. That is why all Simply...Organic products are not only organic and toxin-free, but also safe for adults and babies alike! Kelly is currently working on a new line of products, including lotion, wipe spray, and dream mist specifically developed for babies and children! I can't wait to check those out!
So, back to the Simply...Organica Bug Spray! I couldn't wait to try it out and get the kiddos back outside in the evenings so, the night it arrived we sprayed down myself, Josiah, and Liam before heading out. Made with citronella oil, you are left with only a nice lemon scent, which is much better than the usual medicinal, unpleasant scent left behind when using a bug spray. Did it work? Absolutely! We spray it on every time we go outside now and it works wonderfully. We recently visited my parents and made the mistake of walking the dogs through some high grass. I looked down and saw about 10 mosquitoes on my legs so, I took out my spray and, within seconds, they disappeared. I even sprayed the dogs since it's safe for pets! We had a wonderful walk without bugs constantly bothering us. We received a 2 ounce bottle in June and still have about 1/4 left almost 2 months so, you definitely get your money's worth.

I'd love to have their bug spray. I have two little girls, and I only like to use organic bug spray on them, but it's pretty hard to find. This one looks great!
