    Default Fragrance free insect repellant?

    Can anyone recommend a good insect repellant that's completely Fragrance free & is safe to use during pregnancy?

    I'm having trouble finding one, most of the ones that say 'fragrance free' still smell.

    Ok well obviously there aren't any. Can't find anything online either.

    So I wonder what people are supposed to do during what seems to be a mosquito plague when they are pregnant & the smell of the fragranced ones make them retch?

    I don't know if it's fragrence free but it doesn't smell anywhere like aeroguard or rid (which both have teh same active ingredient - deet), there is one that I really like but I can't think of the name of it. Its active ingredient is something like lemon eucalyptus something something. I will ask DF later tonight, he will know and get back to you. It's usually only available from camping stores but I do remember seeing the website have a list of stockists.
