Actually, they never stated that it's *not safe*... the reason that they recommend against using it on children under 3 is simply because there hasn't been as much testing of oil of lemon eucalyptus. This is an important distinction. So to summarize: the recommendation was not based on any evidence that OLE is dangerous. However, there most certainly is evidence that DEET is an irritant and neurotoxic in concentrations over 30%.
