There are the pleasures of Summer, such as yesterday's feature post - watermelon, and then there are the pests, in this case the tiny but mighty mosquito. Mighty? Yes! The little red welts I woke up with this morning are mighty maddening! Silent, stealth-like, these little flying beasts can make this season very unpleasant. However, there is one pleasant thing which is remotely related to the mosquito and that is the Growing Mosquito Plant or more commonly known as Citronella. Not only a natural repellant but so beautifully fragrant all on its own. Pick up one of these lovely plants & keep it by the window this summer. Rub a leaf between your fingers or on your wrist for a citrus-y, great smelling natural scent that doubles as a dynamic deterrent. Take that you buzzing little beasts!
I've always been crazy for products made from pure & natural ingredients & things that smell fragrant & delicious and, have even been known to follow someone down the street as if trailing the Pied Piper himself if they smell good enough! As such, I've decided to start my own line of things that smell fantastico-fabuloso! The balms & essential oil perfumes smell dreamy, are made out of fine, pure ingredients, in small batches & are safe to use.
