Protect yourself against insect bites on outdoor adventures this summer. But ditch the harsh chemical aerosol sprays that sting your eyes. Instead, use bug repellents made with natural ingredients. 

Lenexa Farmers Market vendors Madd House Hill, Locally Good, Next to Nature Farm and Mindfully Made offer a range of effective bug repellent products. They are moisturizing and made with high-quality essential oils.

Keep bugs at bay with Madd House Hill’s Bug Off product line. During the summer, many customers switch to their insect-repelling goat milk soap bar. You can also swipe their top-selling Bug Off lotion stick on arms, ankles and neck without having to coat all exposed skin.  

Locally Good has an all-natural, vegan, paraben-free bug repellent. Apply a small amount on arms and legs to protect you for at least four hours. It’s made with therapeutic-grade essential oils in a sunflower and avocado oil base. 

Next to Nature Farm’s Buzz-Off Bugs lotion bar contains a mixture of citronella, lavender, geranium, spearmint, and cedarwood essential oils. No sticky feeling left behind!

Mindfully Made offers a botanically-based bug spray to deter mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers. If you forget to protect yourself, Natural Neo salve will help your skin heal from insect bites. Their concentrated Itch Away balm relieves irritation from oak mite lesions, chigger welts, mosquito bites and poison oak/ivy rash.
