Soothing Oatmeal Body Wash

Although they may not be our favorite, bugs are an unavoidable part of certain times of the year, buzzing about and playing their important part in nature. As much as we would like to completely avoid insect pests, they still manage to sneak past our barriers and leave us with bites, stings, and irritated skin. This soothing foaming body wash is the perfect thing to help calm and heal those insect bites and stings that we weren't able to escape. Unscented liquid castile soap offers a gentle cleansing base to get the area clean and ready to heal. The calming oatmeal infusion helps to relieve itchiness and moisturize inflamed and irritated skin that can result from insects bites. Lavender Essential Oil also helps to ease inflammation, reduce pain and speed healing of bug bites and stings.
