Natural Bug Spray

I love summer time! The change from the cooler weather into the warmer energizes me. Unfortunately, with that change comes BUGS. Lots and lots of bugs. Thankfully there’s a natural way to protect my family from these pesky creatures.

  1. I LOVE this idea!! I have always wondered about spraying something on a person that is intended to KILL bugs. It never seemed like a good idea although necessary…until now! Thanks so much for this post!

    • Absolutely! Many sprays contain the chemical DEET, which can be harmful to humans. The EPA says that if used as directed, bug sprays containing DEET are not harmful to us, although long-term exposure is.When you spray it on your skin, it gets absorbed and eventually enters the bloodstream. It pumps through your nervous system and has been proven to kill brain cells, causing neurological damage. If you have heavy exposure to DEET, you may experience memory loss, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and shortness of breath. SO SCARY!!! We are so thankful for this natural alternative, especially now that baby is here. 🙂
