The weather is warmer up, mozzies and bugs are coming out!
Dangers of DEET and Chemical Insect Repellents:
Permethrin is another harmful chemical found in many bug sprays. This chemical is a neurotoxin, meaning it can kill brain cells.
If these sprays can kill mosquitoes and melt plastic, it is probably not a good idea to use on your skin. When we use these repellents, the toxic chemicals that are inside them get directly absorbed into our blood through the skin and may be doing more damage to the body than we ever imagined.
Luckily, nature has provided us with a chemical free way to deter unwanted friends! Essential oils!
