Arguably our best-smelling mosquito repellent, this balm rubs in easily and repels mosquitoes for two hours. Small for light travel yet packed with big protection, this repellent balm is ready to be your dependable companion for all of your outdoor adventures.

The lemony smell of this repellent balm masks our human aromas that make us attractive targets to mosquitoes. By hiding your scent, mosquitoes turn nose-blind making them unable to locate their targets (ahem, you). Wearing our balm is practically the closest thing to having an invisibility superpower.

- Castor Oil (10.5%)
- Lemongrass Oil (3.25%)

- Cedarwood Oil (2.0%)

No synthetic repellents. No added fragrance. No dyes.



We test our repellent balm at New Mexico State University's Molecular Vector Physiology Lab. But what does “tested" really mean? It means that we don’t hesitate to get in the weeds—or in this case, put our arm in a mosquito cage—until we get the results you deserve.

Our balm is tested on its ability to prevent mosquito bites on a human volunteer. In the most recent study, Murphy’s Mosquito Repellent Balm repelled almost two hours longer than the untreated skin.


What insects does this balm repel?

Murphy’s Naturals Repellent Balm has been tested and proven to repel mosquitoes for up to two hours per application. 

Is this balm made for application on gear/fabric?

This product has not been tested on fabric and should only be applied to skin.

If you want a solution that can be sprayed on skin and gear, try our Lemon Eucalyptus Oil Mosquito & Tick Repellent Spray.

Is this formula safe for all ages?

Do not let children apply this product to themselves and avoid applying to their hands to ensure they do not accidentally ingest the product.

How do I keep this balm from melting?

Be sure to store this product in a dark and cool environment. Do not leave in a warm vehicle. 

Can I apply this balm to my face?

You can apply Murphy’s Naturals Mosquito Repellent Balm to your face, just be sure NOT to get it in your eyes, ears, nose or mouth.

How do I open the 0.75oz tin?

While holding the tin in your hand, use your thumb to firmly press down on the bottom tip of the tin, where it says “press to open”. The opposing side will “pop” open. Simply press the lid back on when you are done. 


We don't think twice about putting in the extra effort to protect our planet—whether tirelessly researching more sustainable packaging or giving back 2% of our revenues. We make decisions that will protect the outdoors for the long haul because when it thrives, we thrive too.

    Mosquito and tick spray

    The only complaint I have is that the spray plunger us difficult to press. Perhaps it will ease with more use.

    Great mosquito repellant, not oily

    This is the only mosquito balm I've use that smells good and doesn't make me feel all sticky and oily. It does a really good job of keeping the mosquitos away too. I've gone through 2.5 tins this spring/summer.

    Game Changer

    Absolutely love the Mosquito Repellent Balm… not only does it actually work, but it also gives me peace of mind that it’s all natural so I felt good using it throughout my pregnancy and on my toddlers. Added bonus is that it smells sooo good!!! Have definitely recommended this to everyone who sees me take it out of my bag.
