Lee AnnIt's summertime again, and that means more time outside tending to the animals, gardens, lawns and just having a good time. Which inevitably leads to more scratches, scrapes and bug bites. This Summertime Salve is our favorite here at One Ash for all those summer "ouches." It's easy to make, so try it out!
