This wonderful `invention` was created quite by accident. While camping one spring, I was hiking through a small forest with several friends. When we emerged, we had chigger bites along our legs, and they were itching like crazy.
Knowing the medicinal quality of Calendula, I carried some of the tincture with me as an herbal first-aid. It worked great, other than I had a small one-ounce bottle and there were many of us gathered together with many bites. The solution was to make a little bit last as long as possible. One of the friends had a partial bottle of hand sanitizer and the answer was simple... use the sanitizer as a carrier and Dry-Bite was created.
