Summer Annoyances

by | May 14, 2021 | Environmental Pillar

Hello, hello!
When you’re out by the pool or enjoying the weather, so are all of the bugs and outdoor summer annoyances! When I was growing up, I was terribly allergic to no-see-ums. They have teeth like alligators, and I would wake up scratching and bleeding.

I eventually got to the point that I didn’t go outside because most of the bug sprays gave me such bad headaches due to the harmful chemicals within them. I eventually just gave up… especially when I moved to the south.
All of that changed when I was introduced to essential oils. I was able to make my own bite spray to calm that itch, and also found I had less and less bites every time I used it!! If you have children that are highly reactive, there is some hope, and you can make this spray at home. Check out my go-to recipe below so you can get back outside, enjoy the weather and enjoy that outdoors!

Many of the big pools are switching over to salt water and this is huge! Chlorine filled pools can actually block the iodine absorption sites for the thyroid. Which can ultimately put you at risk for skin and immune conditions.
