Keep Insects Away Naturally

My Secret Stash is a bohemian boutique collective featuring handcrafted works of Michigan and American artists, makers, crafters and designers. Owner Karen Hilt says, “Warmer weather means the bugs are waking up. We have soy citronella candles and bug spray made in Chelsea, Michigan, that is eco-friendly! Don’t spray chemicals on you this summer, support local and snag these so you’re prepared. We carry a line of Drunk’n Mosquito brand products.”

            Drunk’n Mosquito brand eco-friendly, premium, bug sprays and soy citronella candles are safe for the whole family plus dogs, horses and farm life. In partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources These Goods are Good for Michigan program, a portion of all Drunk’n Mosquito sales supports Michigan state parks, trails and waterways.

        Natural insect repellent can ward off bug bites while also protecting our skin and the ecosystems. Traditional bug sprays and insect repellents may include synthetic chemicals such as DEET and picaridin, which can cause irritation to those with sensitive skin.
