In the winter time I deal with runny noses, sneezes, and coughs. In the summer time bug bites, rashes, and something my kids like to call swamp butt. I know the latter is unpleasant to consider, but it really is an actual problem. Running around in a wet bathing suit all day can leave your bottom damp and a bit raw. On numerous occasions my son has been brought to tears because of swamp butt. I can just hear my kids giggling every time I type swamp butt.
Needless to say I have been dealing mostly with the summer time afflictions. When you have three children, this can be a bit overwhelming at times. As a mother who tries to exclusively resort to natural remedies, I am always on the lookout for quality products to have in my medicine chest.
Every time I open a shipment from Garden Dream, the whole workspace has the most wonderful smell. I brought home one of the Garden Dreams Mama TLC kits so I could sample some of the products they produce. The three that I have used most this summer are Baby Bum Butter(helps soothe Samp Butt), Smooth Soothe Heal (wonderful for any bug bite, rash or sunburn), and I Can’t be Bothered Bug Lotion(deet free! and works great!).
The Garden Dreams Mama TLC kit also contains some skin treats for mommy too, but I will Save that for another post.

I really love these products and find them to be useful for many purposes than what they are meant for. The bum butter is great for my dry hands, and the Bug lotion does not only keep the bugs away, but it also makes you smell nice. I have not gone one day this summer without using at least one of these products.
