Summertime in Northern Minnesota is truly a sight to behold. In fact, it’s about the only thing that makes those endless -30 degree below zero Winter nights somewhat bearable and a little easier to get through. Come mid June those freezing temperatures are far away, buried in the back of our minds and tucked away until next year. It’s now that the trees are in full bloom, greener than any other green you’ve ever seen and the water sparkles like glass.
When I was a kid, my favorite summer pastime was camping with my family. We used to head for a week to a little campground not too far away in Fifty Lakes. That was my favorite week of the year. We didn’t have much, a small pickup camper that was just big enough for the 4 of us but that’s all we needed. Hot, sunny days, late night campfires and fried bread every morning for breakfast.
Now 30 some years later, it’s my turn to be the adult and keep that tradition alive. So 4th of July weekend, my husband and I take our 2 kids and head every year to that same little campground, on that same little river and I get to watch my kids enjoy it just as I did when I was their age.
However along with those glorious summer days, also comes things such as sunburn, cuts and scrapes and so many bug bites that the kids legs look like they’re covered in chicken pox. That’s why from now on, we will not leave the house without plenty of Your Hometown Hemp CO’s beeswax balm. It’s honestly a game changer and works miracles for everything that I mentioned. It immediately stops itching, redness and swelling from bug
bites. One use literally forms a new layer of skin to protect and heal sunburn. We no longer need Aloe Vera, Neosporin, chapstick, Advil or ibuprofen which used to be must haves in our household! Your Hometown Hemp CO’s beeswax balm replaces it all and more! We will never go camping without it again! Don’t wait to grab a bottle so you too can enjoy Minnesota’s great outdoors without the little annoyances that come along with summertime! You won’t regret it! 🐝🐝
