DIY Bug Bite Relief
Summer is so close I can feel it! Literally! The weather’s warming up and with that all the little bugs start coming out of their hiding places.
So I thought it was the perfect time to share my favorite natural bug bite remedy.
As a family we love to be outside. We just bought a new house earlier this year and it sits on a nice piece of land but there are bugs EVERYWHERE!
It’s kinda insane. We want to enjoy our time outside but we don’t want to be eaten alive by all the bugs.

My son has already come in quite a few times from playing outside with huge, red, itchy bites. I put together this all-natural DIY insect repellent that has helped a lot. The bugs hate it. Especially the mosquitoes.
But unfortunately, we don’t always remember to put it on. So I created this all-natural bug bite roller for those days when we forget.
