Summer often means yard work and gardening. Stay cool with these Frozen Eucalyptus Mint Towels while you work in the yard. Try freezing the towels rolled up in a shape to conform to your neck. Then secure one around your neck with a bandana so it stays put as you as you mow the lawn, pull weeds, or do other yard work. Also, increase your garden produce by keeping the birds and bugs away from your plants with this Protective Gardening Spray.
