BiteBlocker Anti-Itch & Insect Repellent Lotion

This repellent's combo of all-natural and almost exclusively food-grade ingredients (soybean oil, citric acid, and geranium oil) wards away insects for an extended period compared to most natural sprays – from four up to eight hours. The inclusion of coconut oil also makes it a great (and honestly, surprising) choice for the relief of already itchy bug bites and even poison ivy. [$8.50 for 4oz; homs.com]

Best for: Backyards, light hikes, kids.
