Natural Bug Spray

What are the best natural Bug Sprays available on the market? Before Hurricane Irma and Maria hit Florida in September we hurried to stock up on supplies before we had to evacuate S. Tampa. We live in Flood zone A. There was a mandatory evacuation pretty early on for flood zone A. I love the homemade bug repellent option - but we had little time [...]

Cellular regeneration is the key to preventing wrinkles and aging skin.  Essential oils accomplish this and it is far more pleasant than most methods of skin care treatment.  The nutrients and proteins in essential oils help to maintain the elasticity of collagen and encourage [...]
