You're probably in the same boat I was in...I want the bugs to stay away, but I don't want to use chemicals to make it happen. Well, fret no more, I have an answer for you. We've been using this solution for about 3 years now and its been wonderful!! We use it at home in the yard (or the hammock), at the lake, at the pool, at the ballpark and at picnics at the park. I carry a small bottle of it around in my bag and we reapply as necessary (especially when we're sweating or playing in water). This is also our sunscreen too!
AND I have a bonus video for you! Its the latest in the Have You Tried it Tuesday series. We're staying in the bug theme and talking Basil. I recorded it right after the last video, but its been stuck on my phone and I JUST figured out how to get it off of there and uploaded for your viewing pleasure.
