A lovely, lightweight spray repellent that dispenses as a fine mist that can be spritzed all over your skin and hair. With an organic rosemary hydrosol base, this delightfully-smelling insect repellent will keep you bite-free naturally – without the stink, stickiness, DEET, or toxins found in conventional repellents.
Each essential oil in the blend is an active insect repellent according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of active ingredients allowed in minimum risk pesticide products.

Founded by mother-of-three Heather Hamilton in 2009, Zoe Organics originated in Heather’s kitchen when she began making natural products after her second baby was born because she was sick of all the toxic and unnecessary ingredients found in products already on the market. Heather’s education in health and wellness began at an early age; as a child, she suffered from allergy-induced asthma and was on a restricted diet, regular medication, supplements, and allergy injections. Through the years, she outgrew her asthma, and today she attributes her conscious lifestyle choices to feeling better and stronger than ever.
Zoe Organics creates organic skincare products for the modern family, and the company was founded on a passion for providing moms and babies with the most pure, safe, and effective remedies. Zoe means “life,” and Zoe Organics’ mission is to celebrate and protect the lives of children, family, community, and planet. They practice fair trade and social responsibility, with the goal of enhancing lives in every community they touch.
What’s in a name?
In 2009, the year Zoe Organics began, Heather’s sister-in-law, mentor, fellow entrepreneur, and friend, Suzanne Hamilton, passed away. She left behind a beautiful legacy and her precious three-month-old daughter Zoe Anne. Heather had been working on an organic skincare product line for months and had discussions with Suzanne about the need they saw as mamas for a truly natural, organic line that combined luxury and wellness with social responsibility. Most product lines they had come across failed in at least one of these areas. Heather had already picked out another name for the product line, but was never content with it. One day after Suzanne’s death – during some quiet time – the name “Zoe Organics” dropped into her heart, and she just knew it was right. As she continued to reflect on the name, she was amazed at how it captured the entire essence of the company she wanted to build. Zoe means “life,” and Suzanne knew how to celebrate and live life better than anyone Heather had ever known. It was contagious. How fitting that her own daughter was given the name Zoe, a part of Suzanne that will keep on living.
Suzanne spent the last months of her own life fully dedicated to her sweet baby girl. In that same spirit, Zoe Organics seeks to celebrate and cultivate life and, in doing so, honor mamas and babies everywhere.
