The summer of rain. As if the South isn’t muggy enough, add to the weather buckets of rain, and there’s stagnant water everywhere. Water that attracts mosquitos.
Mosquitos ruin the fun.
Go ahead, step up on your soapbox and preach to the masses how much you love these blood-suckers. Right? No one likes the mosquito.
Want to protect yourself from them? Aside from fire, there’s DEET.
When I lived in Miami, decades ago, I remember watching the trucks spray this chemical. It was NOT something I wanted on my kids. Not from a truck. Not from a can.
I prefer my bug spray to be effective, like my parenting, and gentle, like my kids.
This summer we are using Bug Bandit by Fairy Tales with great success.
My kiddos live outside during the summer. This year, back in the spring, they were coming in complaining they were being “eaten alive by mosquitos”.
I present to you my leg after walking from the door to the mailbox.
I want my kiddos to experience childhood. To play outside and watch day fade to dusk. I want them to be part of their neighborhood, enjoy friends and come home exhausted with adventures to tell. I’d like them to leave the itchy bites, which get scratched and become infected, far behind them.
This is where Fairy Tales Bug Bandit comes in. It’s a DEET-free formula that repels mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies, and no-see-ums.
Spritz it on–it smells like mint and citronella. It’s sort of refreshing!
Bug Bandit works.
I have used Fairy Tales Bug Bandit. It is light weight, non-greasy and left me with nothing to do but enjoy myself.
It is free of harsh chemicals, toxins, parabens, sulfates, and pesticides. It’s all the bad stuff removed, leaving behind the stuff that works and leaves Mom feeling good about what she’s putting on her child’s skin.
Bug Bandit is also free of dairy, gluten, and nuts–for those with allergic reactions this might be a great choice.
Here’s what’s inside Fairy Tales Bug Bandit:
- Soybean Oil is proven to repel mosquitoes for 3.5 hours
- Lemon Eucalyptus Oil is as effective as low levels of DEET – without the harmful chemicals (Plus, it smells nice)
- Cedar Bark Oil great for repelling the bugs. (It also smells nice)
- Citronella and Rosemary Oil, the signature scent, and the effective Ninjas of repelling everything from ants, flies, and mosquitoes.
