It's that time of year again where the bugs are out, and the itch is real. Last season, more than a few of my friends experienced the terrible results of touching a brown-tail moth, and it's insane how bad the itch is.

According to, 

The browntail moth caterpillar has tiny poisonous hairs that cause dermatitis similar to poison ivy on sensitive individuals. People may develop dermatitis from direct contact with the caterpillar or indirectly from contact with airborne hairs.

This year, in order to be more prepared, I will share what I know about this one Maine store that gives you what we've all been searching for!

Pickle's Potions and Lotions at 130 Main Street in Winthrop has created a trio of remedies for all of your itches in Maine this year.

These are all natural products.

The balm will help halt the itching! It's called, "All The Itches" Soothing Balm. Pickle's Potions are all for brown-tail moth, duck itch, plant-contact, black flies, mosquitoes, and other things that cause the summer itch.

Pickle's Potions give you more than just a soothing balm, because they've created sprays and rollers to tackle summer itchiness as well.

In addition, they also have you covered with soap!

This soap is made with colloidal oats, jewelweed, and rose, the protective barrier of zinc oxide, and the purification of bentonite clay that will make your skin rejoice.
