  • 5 Blogs to Get You Ready For Summer

    by Paula Gallagher | June 25, 2019

    Summer is officially here! School is out and the 4th of July marks the kick-off to travel and spending a lot more time outdoors. Whether it is camping, sightseeing, or hanging by the beach, being prepared for whatever inconveniences may arise will ensure that you and your loved ones have the best summer. Here are 5 blogs that will help you get ready for summer and fully enjoy the hot months!

    Natural Bug Protection for the Summer: Mosquitoes, black flies and ticks are just a few of nature's creatures that can be a nuisance to many people who love the outdoors. Sometimes, though, they can be more than nuisance. West Nile virus, Zika virus and Lyme disease are just a few of the diseases that can be spread by their bites. But don’t hide indoors or douse yourself with commercial insect repellents. Try natural bug protection to outsmart these pests or take the sting out of getting bitten.

    First Aid Kit for Travelling: This blog provides a list of items that I believe every parent/caretaker should have on-hand for those moments when a local health food store/pharmacy isn’t available.

    4 Natural Remedies for Summer Travels: Many of us are planning trips, and whether it be a staycation or traveling abroad, here are a few natural remedies for summer travel to help your vacation go smoothly.

    Travel Essentials This Summer: Traveling should be relaxing and enjoyable. Unfortunately, it can also be hard on your body. Recycled air on flights exposes you to cold and flu germs and jet lag can make you lose valuable days of vacation time. And, eating foods that you are not used to can also cause digestive distress. Being prepared before you travel can make the difference between a miserable trip and a memorable one.

    Protect Your Skin: Your skin is your largest organ and should be protected. Get tips on how to protect your skin from cancer.
