This post is by Bernie Carr,

Welcome to another Monday Musings, where we share interesting links about all things preparedness, as well as updates on the blog.

I’d like to take a moment to pause and honor our heroes who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country.

First the blog updates…

I’m back to regularly scheduled postings!  It’s been a busy couple of weeks as we finished moving to a new apartment.  The torrential rains we’ve been having in Texas have certainly added a challenge.

What’s your favorite mosquito bite remedy?  With so much rain and standing water, the mosquito population has exploded.  I found I got six mosquito bites during one morning walk.  I’ve been using the moisturizing salve (miracle salve version, with 5 drops of lavender, 5 drops peppermint and 5 drops rosemary oil) to relieve the itch.  It works!

Who won the The Survival Savvy Family giveaway?  We held the drawing The Survival Savvy Family by Julie Sczerbinski.  and the winner was Bobbi.  Thank you everyone for entering the drawing!

Now for the links…

  1. My favorite mosquito bite remedy is taking a hot teaspoon (just run it under hot water) and put it on the bite for a minute or two. No more itch and pretty much gone by the next day!

  2. I use peppermint oil diluted with jojoba oil. the lavender and rosemary are new to me. I will definitely try this. I think I will try tiffany’s idea too. both sound good. thanks.

    1. Hi maggi, That sounds like a good remedy too. I have peppermint oil but not jojoba oil, I may try substituting coconut or olive oil. Thanks for the tip!
