As I’ve shared previously, mosquitoes love me. Maybe it’s my blood type, or maybe it’s my love for sweet-smelling natural perfumes, but I am a biting bug magnet. Which means I am entirely too familiar with itching—and the over-the-counter remedies used to fight it. I’ve got sprays and creams and gels galore, but nothing seems to dull that scratching urge for long—until now.
It’s bug bites season. And that means that I can sit at a table full of people and be the only one walking away with bug bites. According to the Smithsonian, it might have something to do with my blood type, which—for the record—is O. Regardless, I’m not taking chances with bug bites this summer. Because of my work with the Environmental Working Group, I was lucky enough to read early versions of their brand new Bug Repellent Report, which represents 18 months of research.
