I am 13 weeks pregnant with my first and heading to the jungles of Costa Rica for a holiday in February.
As much as I am against putting mainstream bug repellents or deet on my body, I also don't want to use essential oils to keep the bugs off.
Since you've spent so much time in Costa Rica, what would you recommend that's a pregnancy-safe way to keep away mosquitoes?
Susun’s go to herb for this is yarrow… Yarrow tincture in a spray bottle – effect doesn’t usually last as long so you may have to respray every thirty minutes, depending on the amount of bugs… You can use just the tincture straight or add a bit of water or witch hazel to extend amount… You can read a little about it here: http://www.susunweed.com/herbal_ezine/April08/wisewoman.htm
