When in doubt, grab a tea bag!!

Hello bloggies! Teenytiny post today- just have a tip!

Since it's summer time, bugs are beginning to fly! If you get bit by a bug, don't reach for the Cortizone 10! Instead, grab a TEA BAG!!! Let me tell you a story-

Three years ago, my husband and I were on our honeymoon in Sunny Isles Beach, FL. We were waiting for the valet to get the car for us so we could go to the mall, when all of a sudden, I get bit by what looked like a fat black mosquito. Twice. My arm swelled up so much because the venom from the two bites conjoined. We went to CVS to get every bug bite cream we could find... and NOTHING worked. My arm itched soooo bad! We called my husband's mom, who is a nurse, and she told me to lightly wet a black tea bag, and hold it on the bite for 20 min. AMAZING! It was the ONLY thing that worked! It drew the venom out, the swelling went down, the itching stopped... it was fantastic! Now, I always carry a black tea bag wherever I go, and so should you.

So, go buy some black tea bags for those annoying summer bug bites! Until next time, Namaste.

Do you proceed to drink the wound? Seems like a waste of a lot of delicious tea :)
