Hi--
I just thought I'd post this because I forgot about it and it is bug season.  Anyone with horses knows that the original Avon Skin So Soft is a great insect repellant and works better than a lot of commercial sprays.  If you mix it half and half with water in a spray bottle and spray it on you, it works great on repelling gnats, flys, and even mosquitos to some degree.  So many horse people use it on their horses, and selves, that most tack shops, horse equipment places, The Tractor Supply I think even carries it.  Since it's summer I thought this might be useful information. 
Love, Marji

Hi Marji, yes you are so right.  They now make Skin So Soft in a spray can. 

We went to watch the fireworks last night and when we first got there it was like the mosquitos were just waiting on us.  We sprayed and they never bothered us all night.  It is great and safe stuff. 

Like you I use to mix it too, but since they came out with the spray it is even easier to use.  Good info.    AnnieRae :-)

Tells you how much I go shopping! LOL I wonder if I can find that around here. Maybe Walmart might have it. Since its Avon it's hard for me to get. Where did you find it? Do you know if it works against ticks? My guys bring tons of them home. I never had any ticks on my horses, but then we didn't have hardly any ticks where I lived back then.

Hi Marji you can go to my avon. com and order it online. They do charge a delivery charge so try to get it when it's 2 for 1.
