Mighty Shield is an essential oil based bug repellent that not only repels insects, it also soothes itching caused by existing bug bites. Developed by doctors, Mighty Shield is safe to use on infants, but parents are encouraged to check with a pediatrician before using it on children under 6 months of age.

Cassandra's review- The scent is really strong and noticeable.  I like the texture because it is not runny or misty, but thicker and easy to rub in.   I did use quite a bit during my testing, but I did not have any skin irritation or redness.  I did not get bit where the lotion was applied, but I did get a few insects landing on me and a few bites in places where it was not.  So overall coverage is very important and 3.4 fl oz would not last my whole family very long.
