Sustainable is the way we make them
There's not much stock to promising you earth-friendly products if we didn't put the environment and people first when we made them. That's why our motto is, "Doing Others Good."
When you give 2% of revenue back to environmental, local nonprofits, and goodwill organizations, it really adds up.
Ingredients from nature that you know.
Formulas that you can put to the test.
When it has DEET, the chemicals smell bad, they leave your skin feeling sticky and dirty, and they can actually damage your gear. (It's a solvent powerful enough to melt plastic—do you really want it on your skin?)
With our sprays, you get 30% lemon eucalyptus oil—the only plant-based mosquito repellent recommended by the CDC.
And our candles and incense harness proprietary blends of citronella, lemongrass, rosemary, and peppermint to shield you from the pesky biters.
B Corp certified
Balancing purpose with profit
If you look for organic labels on your products, then you should keep an eye out for "B Corp certified" from your next service or goods provider. B Corp Certification is the only certification that measures a company's entire social and environmental impact.
To earn the certification, we opened up our entire production for review back in 2015: from our business model and supply chain to our employee benefits and charitable contributions.
We wanted to be certified because we share the belief that people can (and should) use business as a force for good—not just as a means for their own profit.
1% for the Planet Members
Part of your purchase goes back to our planet
Every time you buy something from Murphy's Naturals, we donate 1% (or more) of our gross revenue* to non-profits that are focused on climate solutions, environmental preservation, and education.
Through our membership, we get to collaborate with other like-minded companies and spread our support from conservancies in our local community to more globally-known organizations like the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Plastic Ocean Project.
(*Gross revenue is important here. It means that we don't donate 1% after we deduct all our expenses. It's 1% from the actual amount you pay.)
Sustainable and responsible sourcing
Producing essential oils is an inherently green business. The quality of the oil we get depends on keeping the soil and trees healthy.
To harvest the main ingredient in our sprays, Citriodiol®, we partner with Citrefine International Ltd, a family-run company that harvests the oil from responsibly-maintained groves of Eucalyptus citriodora trees. These trees are maintained by local men and women without any pesticides and herbicides.
We named our company after Murphy the dog. But we also embraced a D.O.G. philosophy: Doing Others Good
In addition to our 1% for the Planet contributions, through our own "Doing Others Good" initiative, we donate 1% of more of all profits to local non-profits and goodwill organizations.

Meet Philip & Murphy
Murphy's Naturals was named after our best buddy, Murphy—a Brown Standard Poodle who loved the outdoors. Our passion for finding a natural mosquito repellent was born exploring the best (and buggiest) fetch spots with our four-legged friend.
