My Oh My!

Yay for summertime and yay for new albums and concerts!
Can't wait to see Tristan Prettyman in Cleveland this July!
The ladies and I are loving her new song, "My Oh My."

Ouch! Itch No More...

Summer is here which means more time outdoors and
more contact with the bugs that bite.
My little ladies tend to react BIG to bites.
Mosquitos bites turn quarter-sized on my oldest
and my middle CAN’T stand to be itchy at all!
Most products only work short term and the girls are
quick to ask to try “something” else.
Sometimes a mixture of different remedies does the trick and
we tend to rotate through them as the day progresses.
So here are a few of our favorites…

1. Ice
2. Tea Bag (cool before applying to skin)
3. Banana peel

Pour into a spray bottle and spritz on bites.
1. Witch Hazel
2. Lemon or Lime Juice
3. Tea tree oil (dilute with water)
4. White vinegar

Spread small amounts over bites.
1. Honey
2. Baking Soda (make a paste with water)
3. Mud (yes, mud!)
4. Aloe vera
