Billy B's Summer Guide & Essentials

With the summer season advancing in full swing, it’s important to have the right supplies and essentials for a fun and safe time. Summertime is always so exciting for everyone with the number of activities possible. Whether outdoor sports, going to the beach, traveling, meeting friends and family or just enjoying the hot summer days and mild summer nights.

Before venturing out on your summer adventures, be sure to be prepared with a first aid kit, insect repellent, and sunscreen. When it comes to camping, fishing, and other outdoor activities, some cuts or bruises come up. Also, don’t forget about insect bites or sunburn. Here are some great products I found to keep you safe:

My paramedic first aid kits

Equipped with life-saving accessories to help you feel prepared, protected and confident.

  • Expertly selected accessories for: bleeding, respiratory tract, burns, hydration, medication, sprains and fractures, outdoor, topical items.
  • 100+ high quality first aid and trauma supplies.
  • The tear-open bag can be used as a mini first aid kit.

“No-Bite-Me” by Sallye Anders

Nature is a safe place thanks to Sallye Anders’ amazing “No-Bite-Me” insect repellent cream, which is now complemented by an equally effective soap. Just like the cream, the “No Bite Me” soap contains a wealth of active ingredients, including essential oils from cedar, mint, lemongrass, geranium, clove, thyme, rosemary and eugenol. In addition, it has a calming base of olive and vegetable oils. It’s DEET-free and safe for children (babies too!).

“No Bite Me” soap is effective against black flies, mosquitoes, fleas and ticks. It will make your skin happy and you will also be free of the nasty bugs that spoil the fun. Use it in the morning before gardening, fishing, golfing, or just before morning game time. For children who don’t want to sit still while applying our fantastic cream, this soap will keep insects away for 2 hours after use.

B2 Performance Daily Defense Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 30+

This broad-spectrum UVA / UVB moisturizing sunscreen is designed to meet the stringent demands of outdoor activities while an improved blend of botanical ingredients, including HC56Complex® with organic hemp oil, moisturizes and moisturizes the skin. The unique blend promotes healthy skin and keeps the harmful effects of the sun at bay.
