Tick season is among us. And my kid goes into the woods daily. So the best we can do is at the end of the day, do a thorough check for deer Ticks. On cooler days we dress him in long-sleeved shirts and pants, but on a hot steamy day like it’s been recently…T-shirts. So again, the best thing to do is to do a body check before bed. And those nasty ticks can be anywhere!
Although studies have claimed that small amounts of DEET is okay for toddlers (and quite necessary for repelling ticks), I still hesitate to put DEET material on my kid’s skin. This is because he may lick his arm. So I wanted to find a bug repellent that works for ticks, but something that with minimal contact to the kid’s mouth, I won’t freak out over. This one is an affordable $14.00 that comprises of 100% natural essential oils and is completely DEET-free, guaranteed. Ingredients include: Soybean oil, peppermint oil, sweet marjoram oil, lavender oil, lemongrass oil, rose geranium oil, Texas cedar oil, Himalayan cedar oil, inert ingredients (front label), water, acacia gum. All looks pretty natural to me, so I don’t have to hesitate using it for my kid and myself.
