Summer is fast approaching and with summer comes those pesky mosquitoes and insects! Their bites are irritating and they sure can put a damper on outdoor family activities especially for little ones in the family. What’s worse are some of the repellents that are currently on the market. Some lotions and sprays are messy and leave you feeling gross and sticky. Also the nasty part of most repellents are all the harsh and toxic chemicals such as DEET. Parents want safe and effective options that are natural and non-toxic. At GMOFreeBaby.com we worked on finding great non toxic options for families to use this summer. Below you will find some options to look into:
