Herbal Insect Repellent from Turtle Moon Health (Review & Giveaway)

by Jill Berry

On the second day of no power after a recent storm, I ventured out to my porch to read. As I neared the end of a chapter, my husband opened the front door. He told me to “Get up!” I asked “Why? He pulled out the bench I was sitting on to reveal 4 or 5 tiny bee hives. Yikes. I was literally sitting on a powder keg. So much for a relaxing reading spot!

The next day I armed myself – I wasn’t going to let myself get stung, or bothered by any bugs for that matter. I sprayed my arms and legs with an insect repellent before going out with my kids to walk the neighbor’s dog. The bug spray I used was Herbal Insect Repellent by Turtle Moon Health.


Herbal Insect Repellent is the featured product on Turtle Moon Health’s site. The product is:

  • pesticide free
  • all natural formula
  • non-greasy
  • $12 for a 2.5 fl oz/75 ml metal spray bottle

I sprayed Turtle Moon Health’s Herbal Insect Repellent on my arms and legs. I noticed that it was non-greasy, and didn’t have that lingering, chemical-smelling odor that I have experienced with other bug sprays. Herbal Insect Repellent comes in a cute and oh-so-sleek metal spray bottle. A perfect fit for inside your pool bag or hiking backpack. When we were out walking the neighbor’s dog, I knew I was protected against any bugs and creepy crawlies lurking in the tall grass.

Turtle Moon Health was founded by the DuBois family. The DuBois family is committed to producing simple and natural products. The family describes their mission as follows:

in Texas you need insect repellent just to walk out your front door especially with all the rain we have had recently. I like to walk early in the morning

Awesome! I’m one of “those” moms where we only use all natural insect repellent and physical block sunblock and the like. I haven’t tried the Turtle Moon, but I’d love to – especially when I’m trying to weed my garden!


29 Angela E. July 18, 2012 at 11:07 am

When were out on the patio for a cookout, those bugs can really be pest’s.

Even being in the front of my house with my dog Birdie or sitting on the porch or the steps or the swing, I need insect repellant!

For real!! In TX U cannot open your front door without getting eaten alive. The city’s mosquito sprayer truck just drove by spraying out something from the back of his truck and my son and I agree that it must be mosquito fertilizer..make them grow bigger and badder and more plentiful..I hate texas…lol

With two young children, we spend lots of time outside playing at the park, in the sandbox, pool, etc. It is amazing to me how quickly they can get a bunch of bites of their soft skin.
