Mosquitoes…No Problem.

This article may not be of interest to you if you’re not prone to mosquito bites. For those of you that are, pay close attention.

In my family, there are the people that mosquitoes love and those that they generally have no interest in. Unfortunately, I am one of the people that mosquitoes seem to be drawn to. My son Jack is the other. Over the weekend I tasked my kids with yard work. Cleaning out weeds and pruning back some overgrown shrubs. While pulling weeds around the base of one of our ornamental grasses, Jack must have hit a very hungry mosquito or several. He came into the house with no fewer than 15 bites. They had swelled and I knew that if I didn’t get something on him to stop the itching, he’d scratch them into scabs like he usually does.



I grabbed some CBD oil and rubbed it into his bites. I asked him a couple of days later how his bites were doing and he asked me, “what bites?” He had completely forgotten he was bitten because they weren’t itching.

Two days later my son, Ian, came in from playing street hockey and had a huge mosquito bite on his forehead right between his eyes. It had swelled up and he literally looked like he had a third eye. I remembered Jack’s success and ran for the CBD oil. I put it on his forehead and the next day you couldn’t tell he ever had a bite. It is quite simply unlike any other bug bite treatment I have ever encountered. The itch subsides within minutes, but better than that, it doesn’t return. The swelling also disappears. It’s like magic.

If you’ve got some CBD lotion or oil, you now have the cure to uncomfortable mosquito bites. If you suffer from mosquito bites and don’t have this amazing product, come get it before your next outdoor party. You’ll be happy you did.


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.

    I am like the dad from My Big Fat Greek Wedding with his Windex about CBD and YOU ARE TOO. Hahaha. I LOVE IT. Is there nothing it doesn’t make better? I can’t believe I didn’t think about bug bites! Amazing.
