Please note: On the Daybreak TV Segment Chelsea mentioned that she also likes to bring a Deet Sunscreen with her when she is camping in addition to a natural option just to make sure that she is protected. While we advocate using natural as much as possible, it is important to weigh the risks and benefits when choosing any product. Since bugs can carry serious viruses, in heavy conditions sometimes a non-natural solution like sunsect might be your best bet. In general, the Natural Products Network likes to advocate an integrative, non-judgmental approach to natural living.
