Summertime and bug bites seem to go hand in hand. I noticed that some people attract more mosquitoes than others and some react to bites more strongly than others. So while researching on Wikipedia, I found that most mosquitoes prefer type O blood, heavy breathers, those with a lot of skin bacteria, people with a lot of body heat and pregnant women. And sometimes it’s just a matter of how sweet your sweat is!
I’ve been asked several times over the last couple of months if I have a recommendation for the itchy irritation of a mosquito bite. I always suggest giving Lucidia a try. The body’s chemical reaction of a mosquito bite is similar to the reaction other allergies. Basically, the body releases histamines to try to fight off the protein left by the mosquito. Lucidia being a natural antihistamine, has the ability to stop the histamines from being released, which cause the swelling and itchiness.
In addition to Lucidia easing the urge to itch, I found that applying some Cinnamon Protector oil directly on the bite helps relieve the itching as well (be careful not to put the oil on the bite if you’ve broken the skin by scratching too much).
If you try these two the next time you have some bites, let us know. We love to hear from our customers – it helps us learn, grow and share experiences with others.
