Non-Toxic Bug Away

Happy May! I don't know about you, but these last few weeks have been crazy at my house. We've been preparing for summer, wrapping up school activities and spending a ton of time outside in the SUN!!! So with all of this fun outside time, it reminded me that we needed something to help keep the bugs off of our bodies. The rule of thumb at our house is that we only smash bugs if they're 1) inside our house, 2) biting us or 3) on our food. I think that's pretty fair...my son doesn't like this rule when he comes across the very smashable and always annoying June Bugs in the summer, but we stick to it.
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 sun spray too!
