The perfect gift for the outdoorsman (or woman). Being out in nature is such a wonderful way to spend time. but there are a few little things that can make it less enjoyable. Who likes plant rashes and mosquitoes? What? What was that? That's right. Nobody does. We've got just the thing to help. We've put together a little kit that includes:
A spray bottle of Hiker's Releaf (jewelweed, plantain and sage in apple cider vinegar) that can be helpful in drying up weeping rashes. During our years at the Renaissance faire, the actors would often show up in the morning for herbal assistance. One particularly memorable instance was the day after most of the cast had gone swimming in a creek which was apparently surrounded by poison ivy. This spray saved the day. Not to say they weren't still uncomfortable in multiple layers of hot clothing and shoes, etc., but the spray made it bearable.
A bar of our Happy Camper soap which contains jewelweed and plantain with a touch of lavender and tea tree oils. Of course, all true soap is made with lye, so it is lye soap. If used quickly after exposure to poison ivy, it should wash the poisonous oils off the skin. Otherwise, the herbs and oils are said to be helpful with the itch of rashes and bites.
A Git Stick which is a lotion bar that is full of essential oils that bugs hate. This is a great way to apply a bit more long lasting barrier around ankles, wrists and neck.
A bottle of Git Spritz. We use it ourselves, and a friend of ours who was camping in a very buggy area wrote from the trail to let us know that when she sprayed the Git Spritz on, she could watch the skeeters head for her arm and then skid to a stop before heading off.
Take this forest green jute drawstring bag filled with first aid into the woods with you.
