Keep The Mozzies Away The Natural Way

Updated: Apr 10, 2020

Summer is all about long warm days, holidays and… the dreaded mosquito! And while you used to reach for your trusty can of Doom, now that you are pregnant or have a baby, you might be looking to non-toxic options to keep the suckers at bay!

Nothing can ruin your evening or holiday faster than an annoying mosquito or a fly that just won’t quit. Parents rarely forget the first time their baby was attacked during the night by mosquitoes, the swollen red evidence that shows up on their baby’s skin in the morning reminds them to use an insect repellent. But no parent wants to expose their child to toxic effects DEET that is contained in most mainstream bug repellents.

Fortunately, there are natural alternatives that use essential oils like citronella, soybean oil and lemon eucalyptus oil.
