|BUGS BITES & STINGS
|When we think of summer, we associate travelling, sunshine, swimming, hiking, beaches, lakes, warm weather, holidays & family time together. And we also think of insects and getting bitten during this time.
For those of you who are on Instagram & Essentially Lili's Facebook page, you may have seen that we went to Calabria this year. We stayed put at Riaci Beach on the Capo Vaticano Peninsula, very close to Tropea Beach. We ate so much home grown food and seafood caught in the nearby Sea.
One day, whilst we were swimming, I was brushed across the back of my legs by a Jellyfish (otherwise called Medusa in Italy). Gosh that hurt - the tingle on the back of my legs had me rushing out of the water and made me feel a little dizzy. We left soon after, where I jumped in the shower. I applied the Mozz Off blend I had brought with us onto the area behind my legs. The next day the welts on my legs were completely gone.
Another lady wasn't so lucky as the Jellyfish clung onto her shoulder. It was pulled off her and he had to get Pharmacy treatment. Thank goodness this one was nothing like the Box Jellyfish from Australia.
Now that we are back in Zurich, I have made another new blend of the Mozz Off. It's great to keep with you when you're out and about, containing ingredients that bugs don't like. These include Essential Oils like Tea Tree, Citronella & Lemongrass. For those of you who have the Mozz Off, please let me know how you are going with it.
If you have a story to share, please send it to me so that we can celebrate your success. I love that you are part of this journey - Thanks Lili x
This month, I asked for volunteers to try a sample for Acne/Rosacea skin conditions. To read more in the latest blog, click here - The Anguish of Rosacea with Acne. Feel free to contact me if you have, or know someone, who is suffering with this condition.
Note: The giant bugs were made by my daughter in Art Class at local Swiss school. I love the funky stuff she makes - and it felt appropriate to add her giant bugs to my Mozz Off blend pictures.
