Bug Bites and Fireworks

Bug Bites and Fireworks

20150704_214733

Did you guys have a good 4th? I sure did. I spent mine on a beautiful island in Skagit County. Samish Island is home of some of the best people and firework shows in the world. Well, in my opinion, anyway. With a gorgeous sunset and spectacular firework show, I felt lucky to be an American.

One thing that comes with good outside fun by the water is mosquitos. Normally I would have made my bug spray and brought it with me, but for one, Citronella, which used alone is a great bug repellent, is out of stock, and two, I forgot my other oils because I went straight from work. I’ll share the bug repellent recipe even though I didn’t get a chance to use it last night. Because I didn’t have my spray with me and I refused to wear chemical filled store bought ones, I fought it out. I came home with a few itchy bites. But hey, I didn’t get burned this time. If you did, check out this post.

bye bye bugs

I am terrible with not itching bites that should be left alone. Terrible. I couldn’t wait to get home to get some relief. When I finally did get home, I applied some purification and poof! No more itch. I also added some lavender because I had irritated my poor skin itching it so much earlier.

Do you have a bug bite? Pop out your purification and get to oilin’.

This is my personal testimony. Please consult with your physician prior to using any kind of natural remedy or supplement.
