No More Bugz! Organic Insect Repelling Bug Balm

Its mid July in CT and we live near woods.  That makes for many, many bugs especially at dusk, when we’re trying to play outside after dinner, swim, do yard chores, etc.  I’m always on the lookout for bug repellants that don’t contain DEET or harmful to your skin ingredients, so I jumped at the chance to try the No More Bugz! balm from Green Girls Market.  The first thing I liked about this product was the cute label, but I find it hard to resist anything that’s pink in color!!  I do really like the product being in a balm form instead of a spray.  (There is a spray available, but we got to try the balm, and I’m not sure I want to go back to sprays now. I lOVE the balm).  It feels like I can get more coverage on the kids instead of wasting some with each spritz.   My 6 year old likes it because she can apply it herself, without struggle or frustration.  The scent is very, very mild and offers a hint of citronella but not an overbearing one.  [click to continue…]
