Essential Oils For Bug Bites Tutorial
Grab your supplies and head to the kitchen counter. First grab your roller bottle.
Start with your essential oils and add 12 drops of Lavender essential oil and 12 drops of Tea Tree essential oil into your roller bottle. These are some of the essential oils for bug bites because they both have anti inflammatory properties. As Healthline points out, Tea tree essential oil in particular, “is famous for its anti-pain, anti-swelling, and anti-itching qualities. It is also antimicrobial, preventing bacterial infections.” That comes in handy if you have already been itching at the bites and lavender is also antimicrobial.
Next, fill the rest of your bottle up with the carrier oil of your choice. I chose to use sweet almond oil for this roller. Once the bottle is filled up, pop the roller ball on and give it a few gentle shakes and it’s ready to go!
Pop it in a bag, a purse or even keep it in your car! The roller bottle makes it an easy product to carry with you and to use on the go!
Simply roll the DIY Bug Bite Relief Essential Oil Roller over the bug bites and gently massage into skin to stop mosquito bites itching. Do this several times a day and until the bug bite is gone. The Young Living Tea Tree oil is an anti-bacterial and an anti-microbial so don’t worry about rolling over numerous bug bites! The roller bottle oils will help you stay germ free!
