I love Episencial products. I should give the Bug Repellant a try. I hate using DEET. And I especially don't want to use it on my kiddos!

I have considered trying to make my own, but never got around to it. Currently we use an Off Clip On hooked to the back of his shorts & it works pretty good. I might have to give one of these a try & see if they work better!

Thank you for posting this. I am pregnant right now and kind of paranoid about what I put in/on my body, so it is great to know there are options out there. Not to mention I can use these products on my baby next summer!
