Buzz Away


Summer is officially in full swing, which means we are entering one of the buggiest times of the year. From the Zika virus taking over my newsfeed and the fear of being eaten alive while playing outside, our family is paralyzed by this season. We absolutely love to be outdoors and between sports, swim, going to our family ranch, playing in the backyard, and everything in between, we are faced with mosquitos, gnats, flies, and more all. day. long.

One of my favorite new products that has become a staple in our home is Buzz Away Extreme. I’m sure insect repellent isn’t one of the most exciting “products” to have at home, but seriously, it’s a necessity in Austin, Texas! Having 3 little ones ranging in age from 6 years to 6 weeks old, there are so many things to consider before slathering myself {and my kiddos} in some toxic spray just to keep the pesky bugs away. Alas… it’s unavoidable. Here is why our family loves Buzz Away Extreme and why yours should too!

5 Reasons Why We Love Buzz Away Extreme

  1. Eliminates Insect Phobia — My boys are literally freaked out by things that fly and land on them. I don’t know if it’s a phobia per say, but we can barely make it through an outdoor meal without someone having a panic attack over the flies. Now I can’t guarantee that Buzz Away is going to keep all the flies away, but I can promise you that it helps immensely! And at least my littles don’t have mosquito bites from head to toe anymore.
  2. All Natural — Buzz Away Extreme is an all-natural insect repellant made with essential plant oils that delivers the same protection as many chemical DEET-based repellents, without the negative effects on individual health and the environment.
  3. Odor — I haven’t found a single product on the market that is 100% odorless {even if advertised as such}, but Buzz Away doesn’t have an obnoxious repellent smell. Often times I decide to just deal with the bugs, because I don’t want to be plagued by the smell of bug spray; however, Buzz Away is way more tolerable than any other product I’ve ever tried.
  4. Whole Foods — Buzz Away is sold at Whole Foods!!!! As an avid Whole Foods shopper this really speaks to me and says something about the brand. It may be silly to some, but to me, it’s just another bonus about this product!
  5. Easy To Throw in the Diaper Bag — Buzz Away comes in various sized spray options or even towelettes!!! As easy as One-Two-Swipe. This family-friendly towelette makes protecting you and your loved ones super easy. Great for weekend trips, camp and travel, Buzz Away Extreme’s non-greasy formula keeps mosquitoes at bay for up to 4 hours and ticks for up to 2.5 hours.
