Home made bug spray WORKS GREAT!!!

4 tbsp. vanilla
1/3 cup lemon juice
15 drops lavender oil
mix in 16 oz. spray bottle and fill the rest of the way with water. It takes a minute to dry on skin but bugs will steer clear of you.

IF you don't use bug spray and happen to get one, or some, take a warm bath/shower this helps open skin pores and will allow some if the toxins to escape. After you bath/shower and towel dry, rub mentholated cream on it, vicks vapor rub, carmex lip balm work well. This will sooth the itching and swelling and the bite should disappear shortly. It will burn a bit if the skin has been broken from scratching, but it still has the same effect.
