I researched a lot in finding a good mosquito repellent, especially for infants/kids cause I didn't want so many chemicals to be applied on their skin. I came across many brands and tried few of them as well but the only problem I had was the overpowering smell that they had.
Then finally one day I came to know about mama earth products and found a mosquito repellent which was specially made for infants and it claimed to be chemical and deet free. Without even giving a second thought I ordered it online from Amazon and voila it reached me the very next day (thanx to amazon's prime delivery)
The company claims it to be natural and deet free and it has the power of natural essential aromatic oils like citronella, peppermint, and lemongrass. It keeps babies safe and free from mosquito bites.
I have been using this product for past 1.5 months for my twins and I am more than half the way through the can. The packing is up to the mark. It comes in a spray bottle which makes it more convenient to use. It is an oil based product thus it can be evenly applied. The only problem that I faced as a first time user was nothing was mentioned in the bottle how to use it. It needs to be applied to clothes like other repellents or directly on the skin of the little one. The mistake I did was, I sprayed it in their clothes due to which I think it did not perform as much as it should and I was unable to see the results. Then started using it directly on the skin. Though being oil based it never stained the clothes which I liked.
My kids are still 10 months old and they tend to put their hand In their mouth a lot. Because this product is chemical free and deet free I am not worried that it would harm my child if it goes into their mouth. (though I never apply it on their palms to be in the safer side)

Till then stay blessed.
