So glad summer weather is here! It is great to get out in the garden, or to relax on the patio. One of my favourite activities is a peaceful walk in the forest... until I end up jumping around, swatting mosquitoes, trying to stop the high pitched mosquitoe whine (or is it a buzz) in my ear!
Alas, I have found relief, that won't harm my skin, is 100% natural and smells nice too! I have been using doTerra's Terrashield essential oil blend. I rub a drop on each exposed arm and leg, and bit around my neck, ears and on my hair. The first time I did this I rubbed the oil on one arm and not the other. (Why not experiment?) I was intrigued to watch the mosquitoes hover over the protected arm, but not land. I did end up having some mosquitoes land and bite my unprotected arm. I will no longer choose to do that experiment. I will be prepared and use the Terrashield before venturing into the forest!
