Claire Essentials – Summer Essentials! ~Giveaway & Discount!

Back in November, I told you all about my very local lovely lady who makes delightful products! Remember those black raspberry vanilla bath salts that I thoroughly enjoyed? And the bath bomb with the same scent? Well I’m back with more from her! And yes, she’s still a lovely lady! It’s always fun to pop over to our home business/craft sale in the mall and have a wee chat with her!

So what products to I get to share with you this time? Well, Claire Essentials has a fabulously earth and people friendly bug spray! It’s called the DEET Free Summer Spray and it helps to deter mosquitos, ticks and flies! Sounds good to me! I’m super glad that the ticks weren’t near as bad this year as they were last year – but the mosquitos are still quite enjoying being close to us! We’ve had good luck using Claire’s spray. One thing you have to keep in mind is that any of these natural products that don’t have DEET require that you reapply them more often. So don’t be surprised when two hours later you notice that the mosquitos are befriending you again – just dig out that bottle and spray again!

As a Mom, I love the fact that this spray is DEET free! I’m getting more and more careful about what I put on my kids and it’s very nice to be able to get products that are safe! Our kids are good about closing their eyes when they’re having anything like this sprayed on them, but it’s also really nice to know that the ingredients in this spray consist of essential oils, water, witch hazel and only two other ingredients – both of which are deemed to be safe ingredients! This spray is safe for children ages 1 and up. Oh, and my son has a classmate that’s allergic to DEET, so I’m also glad to have a spray around that we can use at school and not worry about hurting his classmate!

The other product that Claire has for the summer blues is her Wild Plantain Itch Stick! I’m *loving* this product. First, it comes in a little 10 mL glass bottle with a roller ball top. That means you can open it up, roll it on and you’re done! The kids can use it on their bites and not end up with 10x more than they need! I’ve had several black fly bites this year and I always swell up and am itchy for about five days! This itch stick has been a *very* welcome addition! It’s worked on every bite I’ve had and the kids are very happy to use it as well! The only ingredients in this product are three essential oils – lavender, tea tree, and calendula and then the wild plantain extract. I’ll definitely be keeping this product around for our buggy summers!

Looking for some products to pamper yourself? Have no fear, Claire still has a full line-up of bubble baths and those lovely bath salts and body butters. She also has a bunch of other products like lotion, lip balm, three different baby products, and soaps! In other words, Claire Essentials can be your one stop shop for just about everything you could want or need when it comes to bath and body products! She’s also recreated her labels so her products have an all-new look!

I’d like to include one bit of information from Claire’s website regarding the ingredients she uses.  “Our products are made using hand picked wild prairie herbs, home grown organic Calendula, and unrefined raw ingredients sourced from local farms & apiaries.”  How awesome is that for a #MadeinCanada product?

Be sure to head over to Claire’s website and check out all her lovely products. and follow her on Facebook to keep up with what’s new!
