I live in Bug Country. We have sand gnats in the spring with the nastiest bite. In the summer, the red ants come out and both C’Man and I have dealt with swollen feet from their attacks. And the darn mosquitoes? I don’t think they ever leave! It doesn’t help that our house backs up into a woodsy area. The boys came home the other day with red bites all over their bodies. I just looked at them and said, ‘I told you so!’.
Now before we head outdoors, I spray on Episencial’s Mighty Shield, an all-natural bug repellent is enriched with plant nectars and essential oils designed to work with the skin’s own natural defense system to keep skin bug-free.
It is lightweight and non-greasy, and actually acts as a moisturizer. It squirts on like a lotion that you smooth on your skin. The best part is the scent of fresh lemon & tea tree. I don’t know about you, but it makes me sick when I am at O’Bears soccer game and people are spraying that nasty, chemical, bug stuff all over their kids and the scent gives me an instant headache.
We’ve also been using Episencial’s Sunny Sunscreen. This is a top rated lotion from EWG and one I’ve been anxious to try for awhile since I’ve heard nothing but good things.
It is safe, made with organic ingredients, transparent zinc, and green tea!
Water resistant, up to 80 minutes!
Unscented, just like fresh air, the website says. ha!
I’ve also been testing out the Soothing Cream. Made with actively healthy ingredients like calming calendula, oat extract and raspberry butter restores moisture balance, while nourishing probiotics and neem oil fortify and soothe developing skin.
Remember those nasty bites I just told you about? We now have a soothing solution.
See all the awesome kid and baby products Episencial makes!
