Summer Skincare from LocalHarvest

Dear LocalHarvest Customer,

Do you love the outdoors but you're challenged by the thought of getting a dreaded poison ivy or poison oak rash? Don't let the fear of getting poison ivy keep you from enjoying your summer adventures. LocalHarvest member No Reins saves the day with their all-natural, effective poison ivy soap and salve remedy, Poison Ivy Stop, made from jewelweed plant, soybean oil, and Vitamin E. It's also a great soother for bug bites, eczema and shingles. Once you use jewelweed you'll never use anything else!

Summer outdoors can also equal sunburn and wind-chapped skin. Aside from making sure you're protected with a good sunscreen, it's a great idea to have a few herbal first-aid items on hand. Owen's Acres will provide you will all kinds of hand-crafted herbal salves that target common ailments like skin rashes, minor infections, fungal issues, pain, and dry skin.

Last but not least, if you're a plant-lover and want to enjoy a living herbal apothecary, add an aloe plant to your collection. Fresh juice from an aloe leaf is well-known and effective home remedy for soothing skin that's been irritated by bites and over-exposure.

Enjoy!
