I was out walking after sunset last night and forgot to spray on my DIY aromatherapy bug repellant. Very frustrating….especially the next morning, when the mosquito bites on my arms, lower legs, and behind my knees started to itch like crazy! I am definitely a mosquito magnet!
I whipped up a fresh batch of anti-itch cream and it did the trick. After blending, apply directly to the bite or directly on larger areas of itchy skin.
It may not work for everyone but give it a try. For instance, some folks find that it reduces eczema itch, but as eczema often has different causes, it may not work for all.
I tend to get very dry shins in the winter, and this always works for me. And I am now happily not feeling the itch of those mozzie bites!
As with all natural aromatherapy formulations and products, please research the oils first to make sure there are no contraindications for YOU related to health, age, pregnancy, prescription medications, etc.
If in doubt, consult a certified/qualified aromatherapist.
DO NOT apply undiluted EOs directly to the skin, and do not take internally.
