Home made itch lotion
Hi all, its another lovely day on the mountain. Really cool this morning, 56 degrees. Feels so good after the heat. Will warm up by afternoon but the nights are lovely for sleeping now. If you are working in the yard and battling bugs and bites, minor scratches etc, try this to soothe the itches. Mix 2 Tablespoons of aloe gel( I buy it bottled but you might be able to use it from a plant if you have one) with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of water. Apply liberally to affected areas. I love the weather cooling down but hate the thought of winter so hope we have a lot of fall days ahead of us. They have late cropped the tomato fields and Doug, my son is putting out new seeds. My eggplants which have not done well finally have a few blooms. take care, enjoy these lovely cooler days.
