  1. I have been getting lots of doses of nature lately since we moved off grid! Yellow flies sting the worst! They bite me wherever I don’t get the bug repellent on! Ugh

      Ugh. Use Aloe Vera. Wear shoes when outdoors. apply insect repellent to exposed skin – repellents that contain 50% DEET (diethyltoluamide) are most effective. avoid using products with strong perfumes, such as soaps, shampoos and deodorants – these can attract insects.

      Maintaining healthy skin is important for a healthy body. Many people may develop skin diseases that affect the skin, including cancer, herpes and cellulitis. Some wild plants and their parts are frequently used to treat these diseases. The use of plants is as old as the mankind. Natural treatment is cheap and claimed to be safe. It is also suitable raw material for production of new synthetic agents.
