I don't spend a ton of time in the deep outdoors (I'm a hotel over hiking gal), but I do enjoy walking through my local parks, having fancy blanket picnics, and opening my windows for fresh air.

And even with those few activities, I find that bugs are all around me! Just this morning I found a mosquito that made its way inside when I had my balcony door open. No, I did not remain calm. But I did successfully kill it!

I have especially sensitive skin, so pretty much everything makes me react, and I have to be very careful. If you're also in the sensitive skin club or you just like to avoid extra chemicals whenever possible, you might be looking for some all-natural bug repellants.

Below, I've linked to everything that has worked for me so far. Please reach out if you have any winners that I did not include! I'm always looking for more organic bug repellants to add to my arsenal.
