Customer Question: Just Coco for bug bite relief
Summer is in full swing and itchy, biting bugs are out to get you. A Just Coco customer recently asked how Just Coco can help.
We just returned form the cabin up North and I am covered with bug bites. Especially my legs. What would you recommend from Just Coco to apply to bug bites?
Just Coco offers several choices to enjoy your summer outdoors.
First, our Pet Protect Body Oil is made from pure virgin coconut oil and a blend of essential plant oils that can be used on both you and your dog to deter mosquitoes, flea and tick bites. Rub Pet Protect into your exposed skin most at risk for bites. And, as the name implies, Pet Protect will help keep your dog safe from biting insects. The essential oils in Pet Protect work effectively on adult humans and dogs. (The ingredients in Pet Protect are formulated to be safe on adolescents-adults and adult dogs but may be irritating on small children, cats, small breed dogs and puppies.) Rub into a dogs coat ans brush to evenly distribute or concentrate on rubbing under collars and behind ears.
Once bitten, twice shy
If you’ve already been bitten and are looking for itch relief try our body care products with lavender or peppermint essential oils. Both lavender and peppermint have anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling and redness and they have a cooling effect of the skin to sooth the itch. Rub on a small amount of the product every 1-2 hours or as long as the itch persists.
