Lemon Balm Lavender Bugs Off Spray | Bloom, Bake & Create. I seem to always get bitten in the garden.
The Plantain Anti-Itch Balm seems to be working on those. Hubby even reported he used it on his tick bites and it has helped heal them. Well, in a perfect world, I’d like not to get bitten in the first place so I wouldn’t need the balm. When I go out to work in the garden or even harvest the blueberries when they come in season, I usually spray myself with the regular bug sprays but I am concerned about what I’m putting on my skin. I recently attended a seminar with Pam Jones of Nature’s Glory of Hazelton, Indiana. DIY. Fake Windex. I was so satisfied with the Fake Febreeze for 15 Cents, that I began wondering what other common household cleaners I could make on the cheap.
There's tons of resources out there for DIY cleaners, but I want to REPLICATE as closely as possible the Real Thing! Probably the Number One Cleaner I use in my house is Windex. Fake Febreeze. I came across this great idea to Make Your Own Febreeze over at Homemade Mamas ( and I just had to give it a try to see if it's as good as the real thing.
Well, it is as good as the real thing. No.
