We are going camping in a few days up in Northern California -- with my best friend who only very recently recovered from a horrible bout of Lymes disease (which she got it in Northern California, btw). She is recommending highly that we all use DEET (research shows 3% of all ticks in the area we will be carry Lymes disease).

Anyone know of a very good all-natural alternative for me, dh and our children to use? And any research on how effective it would be compared to a chemical product like DEET?
