Can we take a minute to talk about the bugs this year?

At least where I live people always say, “This bugs are terrible this year.” They say that EVERY year, though! The bugs are always terrible! It’s a real challenge with where we live, and I imagine where most people live. I think it takes away a lot of the enjoyment of spring and summer if you’re constantly worried about bug bites and bugs flying around your head and into your eyes, etc. That’s why I pack both sunscreen and family-friendly Buzz Away Extreme® in my kids’ camp backpacks.

We want our family to have an incredible, and safe, summer.

Here Are 5 Tips to Help Your Family Have a Bug-Free Summer:

1 – Cover up! If the kids are going into the woods are doing a lot of outdoor exploring, they wear soft cotton pants in light colors, as well as long sleeved shirts. We generally don’t have too much heat, but the clothes are lightweight anyway.

2 – Protect yourselves all day, every day. I used to think mosquitoes were only active during dawn and dusk but now they’re out there all day, every day. So think about protecting your skin 24/7 pretty much. Bugs get in the house!

3 – Apply sunscreen before bug spray. In fact, let the sunscreen dry for about 15 minutes before putting on Buzz Away Extreme®. If you reapply sunscreen, reapply bug spray too. Don’t mix up the order of things!

4 – Get Buzz Away Extreme. This is an innovative, non-greasy mosquito repellent that utilizes a proprietary blend of plant based ingredients that work together to protect your family. The formula contains Citronella Oil, Geranium Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Cedarwood Oil, and a dozen other plant based carrier oils, aromatic essential oils, plant-based preservatives, and purified water too. This is a DEET-free bug spray, and it’s effective too! Buzz Away Extreme® has been independently field tested and proven as an effective DEET-free insect repellent. We don’t do spring or summer without it.

5 – Convenient wipes are wonderful! You can also get Buzz Away Extreme in wipes form. There’s nothing as easy as using DEET-free mosquito and tick repellent with a One-Two-Swipe. And there’s a pop-up dispenser that is great to travel with.

I love having the two formulas. The spray is crucial for our summer lives, and the wipes are easy to use when applying insect repellent to the face, especially on wiggly kids. I feel more confident about summer when I have this combo at home:

The Many Benefits of Curcumin For You and Your Dog!

This is a paid partnership with CurcuminPro, but all thoughts, photos, and product love are clearly my own!

CurcuminPro makes curcumin products of all kinds, including capsules, shakes, drink mixes, bottled drinks, jelly beans, chocolates, and even a pet food topper. See all the ways you can use it, and its many benefits!

That’s right. I’m about to blow your mind. When you think of ways to feel great, do you think of your pets too?

I’m no stranger to curcumin, as we’ve had it in our house for years. You may be wondering what it is? Curcumin is a substance found in turmeric, and it may help reduce inflammation. It may also help you manage aches and pains. That’s why I was excited to find CurcuminPro – a company that makes curcumin products of all kinds! And they’re really creative! They make capsules, shakes, drink mixes, bottled drinks, chocolates, and even jelly beans! That’s right. Jelly beans.

If that isn’t the coolest thing ever, then I don’t know what is! CurcuminPro also makes a pet food topper, which is also pretty exciting to this growing family. They developed a curcumin-protein conjugate called CPro. It makes curcumin 36 times more soluble than standard curcumin, which you generally have to take with pepper or piperine. This inflames the digestive tract to help you actually absorb it. This is the world’s first biosoluble curcumin supplement line, and it’s been on my radar for my family. To get more in-depth about curcumin, it’s a polyphenolic compound that is derived from the plant Curcuma Longa – commonly known as turmeric. And it’s awesome that it’s been used for centuries as a food preservative.

Curcumin has also been used to treat a wide variety of ailments in Ayurvedic medicine.

So here are the benefits! Curminoids are derived from an extraction of turmeric. They’re a rich source of anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants, and this small plant is the subject of thousands of studies worldwide regarding its ability to assist the healing of the body. This is important because so many of our current illnesses and diseases are rooted in an issue of inflammation happening within different parts of the body. It has 3,000 years of use behind it, with no signs of stopping! It’s like the superfood of the supplement world! Basically there’s no reason not to use it. The jelly beans even say on the label to eat them and feel great. And CurcuminPro has made this great formula for various products.

Did I mention that there’s no soy, additives or fillers? 36 times more soluble. Super awesome. Jelly beans. Maximum bioavailable curcumin per dose. Yummy shakes and drinks. Easy capsules. And that gorgeous turmeric color we all love.

I am SUPER impressed! And not least because they made a pet food topper – CurcuminPro® UltaPet.

This is the only meal topper that offers the highest level of natural curcumin benefits in a BioSoluable™ food enhancer combined with TerraPro™ clay and superior joint supplements. Athena’s multi-action health additive includes TerraPro™, which is a rare earth mineral clay known as one of the best absorbents for aflatoxins. And aflatoxins are acutely toxic and carcinogenic in many animals, but especially dogs. CurcuminPro® UltaPet is an amazing source of the minerals silicon and calcium, which are necessary for joint health. Also, all of this amazingness is super tasty to dogs! Athena loves the powder.

This is a wonderful and convenient way for you to help your pet lives a healthy and awesome life. Here are key benefits:

• BioSoluble™ curcumin — all natural with whey protein isolate (WPI) quickly absorbed and assimilated

• Helps remove aflatoxins

• Supports heart, joint, brain and immune system health

• Natural pain relief and joint support

• High level of curcuminoids — each serving contains approximately 600mg of protein-curcumin complex Key ingredients: The topper is made from defatted beef liver powder and contains CPro whey protein isolate, TerraPro™ clay, MSM, glucosamine HCL, chondroitin sulfate, cetyl myristoleate, and bromelain.

Don’t forget to check out CurminPro here. We have used curcumin products in our house for years, and I’ve written about it too. I’m so impressed with a company that has so much science and data behind it, but also great-tasting, easy-to-use products. We have the jelly beans, of course, and we have the chocolates! Not to mention capsules and powders for yummy drinks and shakes. We have it all and I was bursting to share about it. I’d love to hear what products you’ve tried/will try.

*CurcuminPro® UltaPet is not meant for puppies!
