Summer is here!!! In full force the past week. We have been having so much time out side with sprinklers, kiddy pools, bubbles, nature walks, and all things summer. With all this fun unfortunately comes with a concern for moms everywhere… Bug bites can have some serious consequences with all the diseases they spread. Protecting the littles is our top priority as moms so we spray them with bug spray because that is how we keep the bugs away. While this does protect them from bugs doing this we are also exposing their little bodies to very harsh chemicals. I don’t know about you but I know I am trying to avoid that at all cost. So what do we do? Stay inside? Miss out on all the outdoor summer time fun? Heck no!!! Fortunately we have a safe alternative to these chemicals. ESSENTIAL OILS!! I can not say enough about how much oils have helped my family from pink eye, ear infections, fever, stomach bugs, athletes foot, I even helped my father rid his skin from flake psoriasis. They are amazing especially if you use a high quality natural brand. I use Young Living essential oils. They are all natural about there whole process from seed to sealing up the bottle you can even tour the farms its really cool. So lets make some awesome kid friendly bug repellent.
