Much Ado About Bugs!

Bugs, bugs, bugs, how to deal with bugs! Spring has sprung and summer will be quickly upon us, so you'd better have a plan in place to deal with those ever present, yet uninvited guests...bugs! The best thing to have on hand is some lavender essential oil. Once bitten, to take care of the itchy, irritating feeling, here are some easy, home-made remedies!
  • When bitten by a mosquito or black fly, place one drop of lavender essential oil directly on the bite.
  • For multiple bites, take 1 cup of vinegar (apple cider) and mix with 10 drops of essential oil of lavender and 5 drops of essential oil of thyme. Blend well and add to a tub of tepid bath water. Pour mixture into the tub and swish to mix well before putting yourself or your child into the tub. Soak a washcloth or a sponge in the water and then use it to liberally wipe down the body areas affected by bites. Make sure to keep this water away from the eyes.
  • Take 1/4 cup sweet oil and mix in 5 drops each of eucalyptus, thyme, chamomile, and oregano essential oils (you may substitute oregano extract if you'd prefer), This bug bite soother recipe will last about 6 months, so you can have a bottle on hand all summer long!

OR
  • To protect you and your family from getting bites to begin with, try my all natural bug repellent soap. Made from a proprietary blend of several essential oils known to repel insects, this is a natural, chemical-free way to protect you and your family from pests that ruin beautiful, warm evenings! All that you need to do is to rub this solid bar over exposed areas of skin, making sure to keep away from the eyes and the mouth. Or, if you prefer, you can spray the skin with water first, then slide the bar over the dampened skin. Either way, you are sure to appreciate the ease of its use, as well as the fresh, herbal scent.
