What a weekend! I hope everyone was safe and had a fabulous 4th. If you didn’t already know, the 4th is my favorite holiday: the gorgeous weather, fireworks, bike parades, and fantastic food. I love it so much, even two major inconveniences couldn’t put a damper on the weekend. 1- My refrigerator went out. On Saturday. After a huge grocery trip. Thanks to coolers, tons of ice, and even dry ice, we only lost a couple of items. 2.- Shattered the screen of my iphone. I’m fairly clumsy and have dropped it before, this time it hit just right & shattered the screen. Thankfully the phone still works, hoping it’s an “easy fix” at Apple.
Happily, the one thing that didn’t bug me this weekend was mosquitoes! Generally I don’t like bug spray: the smell and the chemicals particularly. But, Blissful Botanic has created their own Natural Bug spray made with pure essential oils. Instead of a long list of unpronounceable ingredients, you’ll find lemon eucalyptus, geranium, lavender, citronella, lemongrass, rosemary and catnip. I know, catnip sound crazy, but Iowa research study shows that catnip oil is 10X more effective than DEET and the CDC recommends lemon eucalyptus as a natural insect repellent. They also use witch hazel and aloe vera also added to soothe existing bites. Safer for everyone!
