Relief for Those Summer Itches

This time of year our kids can’t spend enough time outdoors. From hopping into their kiddie pool to playing house in Sugarbaby’s Cottage (it’s a playhouse perfect for her size), and checking on how ripe our strawberries are to helping with yard work and gardening, they are outside as often as they can. Not to mention going to our local park. And a couple of them are begging almost daily for a walk up our butte, while it still seems impossible to me that they genuinely enjoy the 20 minute climb only to wander around a grassy area (with an awesome view, mind you) – yet, they ask, all the time.

They are positively itching to go outside. And so am I.

And then they’re often itching once they are back inside.

What do you about the frustrating itches that make us want to lose our mind? Well, there’s breastmilk, of course. And there’s the recommendation to rub, or slap, the itchy spot instead of scratching. NO SCRATCHING!!! When you’re ready to pull out your hair and you’re desperately looking for a safe product to slather onto your wailing kid, you may wish you had some of Motherlove’s Green Salve on hand.

Motherlove Green Salve

The Motherlove Green Salve is all natural and versatile, and quickly and effectively takes the itch out of insect bites, bee stings, and poison ivy. It soothers and eases the discomforts of rashes, chapped and irritated skin – including insect bites and poison ivy! It has zero toxins and is made with 100% certified organic ingredients.

The Green Salve is one of Motherlove’s original products and uses the same recipe that Kathryn made in her kitchen when she started Motherlove. It’s really special to Motherlove because it’s still handmade (albeit in much much larger batches) in their facility in Colorado.
