Moisturizing Anti-Bug kids salve bar works!  It’s summer, and in the midwest, that means mosquitoes and other bugs! During this time of year, if you are planning to garden, play, camp, or anything outside you’ve got to be prepared to encounter bugs.

There are many products on the market; some are natural while some include DEET or other types of chemicals.

We choose to avoid chemicals and look for many alternatives.

When making your own insect repellent you can decide what scent and how strong you want to make it.  Moisturizing Anti-Bug kids salve bar can be made into a salve or lotion bar.
