Which is the best bug spray for babies out there?
The winter is now behind us and the warming days encourage mosquitoes and bugs to troop back to life from their hideouts.
For them it means better opportunities for life and living but for us it means increased risk of Zika, Chikungunya, West Nile, Dengue and such other awful viruses.
The risk is higher when children are involved and you can’t confine them indoors especially in the warm spring weather.
What is more, some of the insects and bugs raid the indoors as much as or more than the outdoors and there is no point of hiding from them.
The solution is to protect yourself and your baby and you would therefore want the best bug repellent for your kids.
To get the best bug spray for your baby, you need to consider factors like the type and concentration of ingredients, the mode of application, the protection hours, cost and so on.
Here are my best two repellents
1 SelpHbalance Mosquito Deterrent Bracelet
With these bracelets marketed by SelpHbalance, your kid can enjoy his play time outdoors without the itchy mosquito bites spoiling the party.
These are bands that you or baby can wear in the wrist or ankle and they contain natural essential oils such as Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemongrass, and Citronella. These are 100% non-toxic and they produce scents that put off the mosquitoes all around the user from a safe distance.
Besides organic ingredients, you don’t have to smear the spray on the skin thus avoiding direct skin penetration.
You can even hook it to a backpack or stroller and it will still serve its purpose well.
The insect spray can last up to 10 days and therefore it is a must have essential for travel, camping, hiking, fishing and so on.
2 Babyganics Natural Insect Repellent
Babyganics lets your children enjoy the fun and adventure of childhood to the maximum.
It is made of 100% plant-based essential oils such as Rosemary, Peppermint, Geranium Oils, Citronella, and Lemongrass.
This blend produces a smell pungent to the most thick-headed mosquitoes, flies and fleas thus keeping your baby protected from their cruelty and allowing him to play and explore.
What I love about it is that it is free from chemicals such as DEET and picaridin and thus you never have to worry about your kid developing reactions such as allergies, headaches, and skin irritation.
You are free to apply the oil to your kid’s head, face, arms, legs and neck, but avoid the nostrils, eyes and mouth.
And that’s my experience with baby bug sprays. Let me know your view. What do you look out for in a baby bug spray?
