Tick and Mosquito Guard
Did you know . . . ?
According to the nonprofit organization Environmental Working Group, the average newborn baby has 287 known toxins in his or her umbilical cord blood. Imagine how many toxins we each are exposed to every day.
Most insect repellents contain DEET, a chemical that effectively prevents bites from mosquitoes, flies and ticks. On the negative side, DEET is also absorbed quickly through the skin, and then spreads to your body’s organs. Some of the known side effects of DEET are rashes, muscle twitching, confusion, slurred speech, seizures, and even death. So what are we to do? Endure insects biting us at will? Stay indoors all summer?
Happily, there is another option. We absolutely love MosquitoGuard and TickGuard from Botanical Solutions. These sprays are DEET-free, non-toxic, and -- best of all -- they really work AND smell great, too!
