Make this a Deet-free Summer!

The warmer days are here and so are the bugs!    Bugs aren't only any annoyance but their bite/sting can be quite uncomfortable and even dangerous in some instances.  My kids, especially my oldest always swells up in the area if he's bitten by a mosquito. The latter in particular can cause diseases such as Malaria, Yellow and Dengue Fever. West Nile is another one to fear.  So the question is, how do we protect ourselves from these vicious bugs? Well, the problem with most insect repellents on the market, is the fact that they contain DEET. And according to Health Canada, DEET is classified as a pesticide.  Naturalnews dot com also recently published an article declaring DEET as  neurotoxic.  Now that you're aware of the dangers of DEET, the next big question is what to use in place of Deet products, right? Well, I'm here to tell you about this awesome alternative by Miessence Organics. Their  Bushflower Spray is formulated to comfort you throughout these warm months.  It's formulated with pure essential oils and organic herbal extracts -- no chemicals whatsoever. For a complete list of ingredients, take a peek here.  As a mom, I say this product should always be a staple whenever you're heading out to the parks or any place where bugs dwell.

Finally, you can say goodbye to your toxic deet formula. I am positive you'll love this non-toxic alternative. It's also non-sticky and doesn't feel heavy on the skin. 

Wishing you all a safe, happy and deet-free summer!
