Essential Oils Soothe Summer Bites and Stings
Warm weather and summer rains mean more than just lush gardens: they mean bites and stings from mosquitoes, bees, red ants, stinging nettles, and other bugs.
Just yesterday my partner headed unknowingly into unfortunate contention with a beehive in our tool shed, when we got to test the oils.
Watching him run across the yard swatting at his neck (go for the jugular, indeed), I immediately headed for the Blue Tansy and Lavender Skin Balm from Ananda Apothecary. After applying 2-3 drops to his multiple stings, the itching, stinging, and swelling resolved within minutes.
Not all encounters with biters are so dramatic. Common mosquito bites can be itchy and uncomfortable, but a drop or two on each bite makes them disappear overnight. Blue Tansy's anti-inflammatory power, combined with the soothing, firming actions of Lavender in the regenerative Tamanu oil, lends this bug balm features to make your summer itch-free.
Even when applied to blemishes, the swelling and redness dramatically decrease overnight. Win. Win. Win.
Here's the recipe for you to try:
Mix well, and apply directly to the skin. Soothes itching and irritation within minutes. Eliminates swelling associated with bug bites, and even blemishes. Those mosquitoes are after me now, but I fear not :)
