You’ll be glad to have this Itch Be Gone Essential Oil Recipe as a natural remedy to stop mosquito bites itching.
Soothing Essential Oils For Bug Bites
I love warm weather and I love the outdoors. The only down side of summer fun is the insect bites and the skin irritation they can cause. Itchy bug bites sure are a discomfort! Here are the best essential oils for your first aid kit to help you be prepared to stop itching the natural way. While all of these are great essential oils for quick relief, they should be diluted before use in a carrier oil because they are powerful oils.
Lavender oil (lavandula angustifolia) is known for its anti-inflammatory ability as well as its pain-relieving and numbing effects. Lavender essential oil is known to be great for its healing properties and is very beneficial to the skin.
Peppermint essential oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it has a cooling sensation when applied to the skin and is therefore very useful to stop itching and relieve minor pain such as you may experience with bee stings.
Rosemary essential oil is an excellent choice for bug bites as well. As Mind Body Green points out, it is well suited for skin care because of its antioxidant and antibacterial properties which help lower the risk of infection.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree essential oil (melaleuca alternifolia) is one of the favorite essential oils to treat irritated bug bites. It helps in so many ways as it is anti-pain, anti-swelling, and anti-microbial which all help with anti-itching!
Roman Chamomile Oil
Another oil with soothing effect is chamomile flower oil. It is a perfect choice for great relief because the oil helps with redness, itching, and irritation. It is known for easing skin conditions and improving wound healing.
- Check essential oil products for purity and only use high quality products.
- Essential oils are for external use and should always be diluted in a carrier oil before use in order to prevent skin irritation and/or allergic reactions.
- If this is your first time using essential oils, you may want to patch test on a small area of skin and wait at least 24 hours to confirm no negative reaction before using further. Especially if you have sensitive skin!
- If you experience any adverse reaction, discontinue use immediately and consult your health care provider.

Essential Oil Itch Relief Recipe Supplies Needed:

- Young Living Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Carrier Oil ( olive oil, liquid coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, or grapeseed oil)
How To Make Anti Itch Bug Bite Relief:
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 best 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!
How To Use Bug Bite Essential Oil Roller Recipe:
Simply roll the DIY Bug Bite Relief Essential Oil Roller over the affected area of skin with bug bites. Gently massage into skin to stop mosquito bites itching. To enjoy the soothing properties, 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 your itchy skin stay germ free!
