With all those outdoor activities, those pesky insects are eating you alive! It’s so hard to stop scratching those itches…  but here are a few remedies in the form of FUN that will hopefully make you forget you were bitten at all.

Miss Cozy’s Tip of the Day: Bug bites can be a pain, but even more so, scratching them can sometimes cause an infection – so we definitely want to avoid that! Cut a lemon in half and scratch your itch with the soft pulpy side of it. This will provide a soothing relief. Next, put some aloe on top of the area for a cooling relief and it will help heal those bites even sooner!

If you have the chance, try to stop by one of these great events this weekend:
