I really like using this on the kids. I refuse to use DEET on them so before this product I tried several essential oil type repellants which were not very effective at all. At the start of mosquito season, mosquitoes will take on any repellant out there so this won’t be perfect but nothing is, but I am very impressed with it. It does a very good job, as good or better than DEET IMO and this is safe for use on skin. It also has a much more pleasant scent (for us anyways, I guess the mosquitoes don’t like it) than typical bug repellants. Overall, this will be my repellant of choice for my kids for sure. I love that it’s also effective on ticks because Canada is now very much on their hit list and Lyme disease numbers are rising.
