Deet-Free Alternatives for Pregnancy & Baby
We're often asked for a deet-free alternative that's "safe for baby". Butterfly Weed does not contain any harmful chemicals or synthetics and is considered safe for children, however for a baby under 6 months of age, avoid use on the skin. Essential oils are powerful and concentrated and care with their use should still be taken. As with any essential oil blend, we recommend a small spot test be done on children over 6 months of age to test for skin irritation. If irritation occurs, spray only on clothing, carriers, or strollers.
Similarly, because of the addition of Pennyroyal leaves, an effective deterrent for pests, we would caution use during the first trimester for pregnant women. However because the Pennyroyal leaves and essential oils are an infusion, the concentration is incredibly mild and generally considered safe during pregnancy.
If you are looking for a deet-free alternative, our Butterfly Weed makes a much safer choice. Tested and used by tree-planters and campers since 1997, this gentle formula is safe for children as well as pets. It doesn't smell strong or harsh, and has a mild and pleasant scent of cedar and peppermint.
Ingredients in Butterfly Weed: Eucalyptus leaves, Lemongrass, Pennyroyal leaves, Tansy flowers, Soya Bean Oil, Neem Oil with essential oils of Cedar leaf, Lavender, and Peppermint.
Made in Ontario, Canada.
finally...something deet free that works! Review by Michelle
Price Value Quality
My whole family loves this "outdoor" spray. Canada makes it very tough to call these natural products 'mosquito repellent' but it does the job. We live in a heavy mosquito area and since I've moved here I've been terrorized by the mosquitos. This body spray keeps them away, just be sure to apply it all over and re-apply often. I love it most for the peace of mind...no deet on my baby and no deet on myself (especially now that I'm expecting again). Highly recommend. Although it sells out fast, so maybe I don't want you all to love it too! ;-) (Posted on 6/28/14)
