Insect bites are soothed when using essential oils. Soothe skin irritation. Traditionally oils have been used since the time of the Egyptians to soothe bites and repel insects!
Insect bites also have the potential to carry disease. Mosquitoes for instance carry West Nile Virus which can be burdensome for humans and animals, especially horses. And of course we know that the tick bite can create ill health for us and our dogs, horses and cats.
What Types of Bites can be Remedied with Essential Oils?
All types of bites will respond well using essential oils. One can use them for mosquito, horse fly or chigger bites. And bee stings and tick bites.
What Essential Oils can be used for Insect Bites?
Here are some oil recommendations:
Apply 1-2 drops directly on the bite undiluted or dilute 50:50 if you would like. Place it on the bite up to four times per day. It is that simple!
Personally, I love Melrose and Purification oils for insect bites. Between the two, there hasn't been a sting or insect bite that has bothered me for very long.
Are there Oils I use for Certain Insects?
All the oils that are listed above will help with insect bites; however, there may be a specific oil or oil recipe that has been used successfully for certain insect bites so I have included them as well. These are listed below:
Insect bites and spider bites can be very serious so please do seek medical attention if warranted immediately.
