Welcome to Santa’s Blowout Event! There are 6 wonderful blogs participating in this event, each brinigng you reviews and giveaways from some great sponsors that we think will make excellent holiday gifts … even for that hard-to-shop-for person! Get them a unique gift this year!

Be sure to check out the sponsors pages, not only do you get extra entries for doing so, but you’ll find some great products I know you’ll just love! To keep moving through the holiday blog hop use that handy dandy “Bookmark” tool you have on your computer! ๐Ÿ™‚ I know I will!

The 6 blogs participating in this event include: Emmy’s Boos and Rawrs, My Life With Rats and More, Mommies Playground, Closer to Lucy, the host blogs Evoluchun’s Misc. and A to Z Medical Reviews, and of course SAPsMaMa: Natural Parenting in the Modern World!!

SAPsMaMa’s wonderful sponsor for Santa’s Blowout is Insect Shield!

What is Insect Shield?
Insect Shield Repellent Apparel and Insect Shield Repellent Gear are revolutionary products designed to provide long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection. The durable protection provided by Insect Shield apparel and gear is the result of years of research and testing. Insect Shield products protect against pesky and potentially dangerous mosquitoes and ticks that can carry diseases such as Lyme disease, malaria and West Nile virusโ€ฆ

Why does SAPsMaMa love insect shield?!

Insect shield is a more healthy and eco-friendly way to protect yourself (and your little ones) against disease causing insects. Some of their products also protect against the sun…a more healthy and eco-friendly alternative to sunscreen! No more re-applying spray or wipe on repellent or buying can after can of repellent. Less waste, less money out of your pocket book, and better for you and the planet!

Insect Shield: Technology for the future

Some repellent products require fogging or spraying, and topical insect repellents can readily come off while bathing or wading through a body of water. Also, many traditional insect-repellent products require disposal of a non-biodegradable container.

A Positive View of the Future
Insect Shield technology represents a responsible way to use insect repellent. Insect Shield puts just enough bug protection right where it is neededโ€”around an individual. Insect Shield products repel mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers, ants and midges (no-see-ums), with only a small amount of long-lasting active ingredient. Compared to spraying, fogging, or topical insect repellents, Insect Shield products can help reduce overall pesticide and repellent use. Simply put, Insect Shield provides a method of insect protection with many advantages.
