I was sitting on the beach last night at sunset simply enjoying the view.  I was so lost in the beautiful scene that I didn’t realize that I had mosquitos feasting on me!  When I got home I started to itch all over my arms and legs, I was ferociously scratching all over.  I quickly whipped up a few of these as I know this won’t be the last time my family and I have itchy bug bites this summer.  Thankfully these start to ease the annoying itch as soon as you apply it.  I’ll be keeping one in my purse for the rest of the bug season!
