DEET | Dangerous for Sure

DEET is best if avoided.  It can melt plastic, so why on Earth would we want to put it on our skin, let alone our children’s skin?!  Herb-based products are more gentle.  Some ingredients might include: eucalyptus, citronella, lavender, and tea tree oil.  You can even make your own recipe by looking online to find one that best fits your family.  If you do get bitten, put a drop of peppermint oil to soothe the spot.
