This blend of essential oils helps calm the skin, soothe skin irritations, and reduce itching. Bug bites are a huge pain in the summer—literally. While they are itchy and uncomfortable, bites from common bugs like mosquitoes, mites, and fleas are usually harmless.
This recipe has been known to provide almost immediate relief — without the toxic chemicals found in most commercial anti-itch products.*
Add essential oils to a 9 or 10 ml roller ball then fill the rest with tamanu oil. Tamanu oil has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce itching. Shake well to blend and it’s ready to use. Do not use on face or near the eyes.
Note: Often, bites from fire ants, wasps, hornets, and bees may cause you intense pain or even an allergic reaction. Identifying the culprit may be the difference between either going to the emergency room due to a potentially dangerous allergic reaction, or simply applying a natural DIY soothing bug bite roll-on.
We hope you find great use for these Bug Repellent & Bug Bite Itch Relief recipes and they are beneficial during your summer activities.
