Summer is upon us and so are the summer inevitables- sun exposure, insects, and of course the dreaded bug bite. While some of us may turn to harsh chemicals to keep bugs at bay, we say turn to natural repellents and remedies to do the trick without the tradeoff. Here are a few of our favorite summer essentials for repelling insects, relieving discomfort from the inevitable bite, settling dry, irritated skin, and helping tissue heal and stay healthy all summer long.
Tansynella Organic Bugscreen is an effective, insect repelling organic oil to use in the bath and on the body to moisturize skin and ward off mosquitos and other flying insects. Made with organic sunflower oil infused with the herb tansy with herbal essential oils provides a brightly fragrant body oil that also acts as a protective screen to help keep bugs at bay.
Bug Bite Balm provides the soothing, natural itch relief you are looking for. When the itch is on, we adhere to the 1-2-3 rule: clean the skin, stop the itch, and start the healing response. This natural remedy for bug bites is a camphor and peppermint essential oil blend that does just that- cleans, cools, and numbs the area, reducing the itch and swelling. A simple trifecta of herbal goodness for a quick bug bite fix.
Lemon Balm Remedy Oil is another specialty product we turn to for moisturizing and settling dry, sensitive skin. It also helps reduce irritation, even the kind associated with a bug bite. As a member of the mint family, lemon balm has a calming effect on both tissue and temperament so use as massage or bath oil to moisturize skin and calm agitation.
Calendula Remedy Oil is a skin mending beauty oil that promotes fast healing. It is also a wonderful organic oil to treat overexposed, dry or mature skin. Revered for accelerating the healing process, it also helps reduce visible scarring. Great for use on the face as well as body to even skin tone and add elasticity to dry or damaged skin.
So, when it’s time to get out in nature and embrace some summer fun, remember to have your skincare essentials ready, so you can stay comfy, healthy, and nourished all summer long.
