What is the best Mosquito repillent to buy before heading out to Aruba?

I am 7 weeks pregnant and not sure if DEET is safe. I am more into natural stuff not chemical base. Any recommendations?

  • Or you could just use avon skin so soft. It is for beautiful skin and for some reason it keeps bugs away. So you will be sexy and bug free.

  • Thanks ladies. I really appreciate the response. I ended up making an old Arab remedy "hummus spray".

    Mosquitos hate garlic smell.

    Good one huh? Today off to Aruba - no nausia and excited to celebrate our honeymoon.
    Hve a great week.
