Wow, summer is here and I’m so grateful for the lovely weather, but I can do without the mosquitoes. Yes, I love animals and truly try to respect all Gods wonderful creations, even the little annoying ones. You see they believe it’s their job to place a damper on our fun in the sun. To ruin our hanging out, interfere with us enjoying a nice breeze or our laying near the water just as the sun decides to set. For these little creatures, Tis the season to bite, they come out in full force to disturb us humans who they believe are having just too much fun; they’re determine to put a stop to the summer madness. So they bite away, leaving our skin covered with their marks, watching us frantically scratching desperately with little relief. I can here their sinister little laughs (this is my story and I say mosquitoes laugh at us, OK). They actually encourage their other little annoying friends to join in on their version of summer fun. Fleas and other itch-inducing insects hear the call and they too come out in full force to cause trouble. I’ve always been a magnet for mosquitoes and other bite-happy bugs, and my skin is super sensitive to bug bites.

Once, when I was living in my college dorm, my roommate and I discovered that one of our perimeter walls was host to a pretty extraordinary number of mosquitoes that decided to make the presence known at an ungodly hour in the morning. We were totally ambushed and so we spent the weekend itching, scratching and totally grossed out. It was our custom to wear as little clothing as possible and our excuse for shamelessly flaunting our bodies was due to the extremely hot weather but we both knew we had other motives for showing skin. Well, the truth be told, the male dorms were not far away and we had our eyes on a few good looking guys (the trials and tribulations of young women, right….). That weekend was ruined, our skin was a mess and we decided not to play baseball that weekend, later I discovered the guy of my dreams found the girl of his during that game. I declared war on mosquitoes that summer; they had ruined my life (a 19 year old girl’s point of view).

So what does all this have to do with Lovely Lady Products? The owner is smarter now and thankful that those little mosquitoes ruined her chances with the Jock, now she’s happily married to a handsome geek who also has a love for nature and so we’ve come up with a solution to keep the little critters from ruining summer without the need to kill them or ruin our own health by using creepy commercial bug repellents that are full of nasty chemicals like DEET, this stuff is totally off limits when it comes to my skin. Call me crazy, but since I try my utmost to keep pesticides off my veggies and out of my diet, I’m not about to go rubbing pesticides on my skin and neither should you.

Here’s our solution on how to stop worrying about bugs this summer: Everlasting-Argan Solid Lotion Moisturizer – Lemongrass (bugs aren’t too crazy over lavender either, so that solid lotion could work too).

Our deeply nourishing Lemongrass Solid Lotion works well for keeping mosquitoes away. Lemongrass, native to Asia, has long been used in natural insect repellents that contain citronella oil. This ingredient along with helichrysum and argan oil is wonderful for sensitive skin, dry elbows, rough feet and hands, cracked or irritated skin. It’s all about the seasons, use in winter for wind damaged skin, in the summer for a fresh and clean scent that moisturizes, soothes and nourishes. It’s also a wonderful moisturizer to apply after a bath. Unlike traditional lotions, it will simply melt as it is applied to your skin, absorbing quickly and sealing the moisture inside. The twist up container makes it travel friendly and because it is in solid form, no spills. Please keep these out of direct sun exposure, nor leave in a hot car. Heat will cause product to melt, and sun can decrease freshness (however, will solidify again once placed in cool area).

Should you have some irritation due to mosquito or other insects’ bites and find yourself in need of soothing. Our Helichrysum Hydrosol Skin Toner is excellent and it’s great for sun burned skin too.  Enjoy Your Summer and click links below to make a purchase.
