Does anyone have a receipe for a natural non-toxic bug spray? I remember seeing a reciepe years ago and can not recall the ingredients. We are camping next week and am looking for something for me and the toddler.

OMG, Burts Bees has a great one. We bought it for our daughter and it works so well and smells so good that not only have I but my husband has also become a convert. I like California Baby baby products but the Burts bug spray is only 7.99 and so much easier to find in local stores where I live. Plus, like I said, our whole family uses it now.

That's a great idea, Brenda. I always worried during BF'ing putting anything on my skin... it can be easily absorped into the milk....

I use an essential oil blend called Terra shield. You can buy it at doterra.com for like $12. We have been using it for 2 years now and so far no bites:)

I'm not sure but I like the stuff that you clip on and don't actually spray on. I've been thinking of that. At least that way it isn't on your skin...
