Living in the prairie province is fabulous...but it also means you have a lot of mosquito's to deal with! And, they really love both myself and my 4 year old son...it's always us two that get the majority (if not all!) of the bites. So, that said, it maybe rather be obvious that I've been on the lookout for a good bug spray that is natural and safe to use on both children and adults. And I must share with you...that I have discovered it! Porcupine Creek Farm creates an all natural bug spray called Canadian Bush Spray (great name, huh? :) ). The ingredients include witch hazel infused with catnip (which is SO effective for warding away those bugs & mosquito's). It also contains a variety of essential oils including citronella, tea tree, catnip, and more. We found that the Canadian Bush Spray worked very well. We had a bug balm before that contained catnip and it was VERY effective...the only thing was you had to rub it on, like lotion. Personally, we like the spray much better as you can put it on your clothes and on your skin for ultimate protection!
Another great product from Porcupine Creek Farm is the Herbal Healing Balm. This is great for heat rashes, scrapes and more. My oldest daughter always suffers from heat rash on her neck during the summer months...so we tried the balm on her neck and it has helped heal it up quite well! I'm looking forward to using the Herbal Healing Balm more in the future as well. It smells so yummy with the lavender essential oil, and is easy to spread & use.
Finally, a product for the littlest babes. Porcupine Creek Farm has not left out the tiny members of our families and has come up with a wonderful Baby Bottom Balm. Our cloth diapers are smelling quite a lot like ammonia these days (I've GOT to do something about that!!), so if you leave an ammonia filled diaper on the baby too long, you've automatically got a red, sore little bottom. The Baby Bottom Balm is great both as a barrier cream (to keep that wet diaper from causing a rash too quickly!), and also has a healing cream if baby has already developed a rash. One thing that I love about this balm is that it is petroleum free, which makes me feel a LOT better about putting it on my children's skin. Oh, and we haven't tried it for any of these yet, but the Baby Bottom Balm can also be used as a protective cream to help prevent frostbite, or even a face cream!
Porcupine Creek Farms is all about providing natural, herbal products, and I'd have to say that from what we've tried, they do a great job of it!
