Natural Organic-Natural is always best for common problems:
Here are tips for avoiding mosquitoes, for helping dry skin, & for aromatherapy.      

Tips for some natural solutionsThere is help for dry skin!

* On the inside:
  Drink lots of water.

* On the surface:
  Use gentle non-drying real soap like my goat milk soap.
Apply an all-natural lip balm and body balm throughout the day.

* In the environment:
  Put a pan of water on your heat registers ( This is the frugal way - many people just buy humidifiers ) to hydrate the air and your skin.

Summer Help for Mosquito Time Again !

* This was sent to me by E-mail *
I am only including the most natural hints that were given.

"OK, mosquitoes... prepare to be repelled!
... Bob takes a B-1 tablet a day April-Oct.
He's had 0 mosquito bites in 33 years.
B-1( Thiamine Hydrochloride 100 mg.)
* Stop eating bananas for the summer & the mosquitoes will be less interested in you.    ...
* Plant several marigolds and citrosa (it's in the geranium family) around the yard, they give off a smell that these bugs do not like.
* Also, plant some in the garden to help ward off bugs without using insecticides.    ...
One of the best natural insect repellants someone discovered is made from clear-real-vanilla. * This is the pure vanilla that is sold in Mexico. It works great for mosquitoes and ticks, don't know about other insects.
***** When all else fails, get a frog ! *****
***** Even better, invite a few bats over ! *****
