Zoe Organics Insect Repellent

Despite coming out of a pump, Zoe Organics Insect Repellent is actually more like an oil. So while it's great for nourishing skin dried out by the sun, it would likely roast your flesh if you were to wear it for any length of time in the sun. The initially strong lemon scent quickly fades into a more subtle clove and cedar wood that is pleasant. We also like its cooling tingle, which tempers any itching from existing bug bites. And we love that 100 percent of its almost grocery list-like ingredients are organic: sunflower oil, castor seed oil, neem seed oil, geranium essential oil, peppermint essential oil, clove bud essential oil, red thyme essential oil, lavender essential oil, cedar wood essential oil, and lemon eucalyptus essential oil.
