Insect bites (of the non-poisonous variety) can cause itching and swelling, but are relatively harmless and are more of a nuisance than anything else.
Essential Oils Suggested for Treatment:
Lavender , Tea Tree, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Clove
Suggestions for Use:
* Combine the essential oil with 1fl oz carrier oil and apply to the bite. (Lavender or Tea Tree oil can be used on their own without a carrier oil for this purpose)
* Add 10 drops of essential oil to the bath and soak for fifteen minutes
* Use a few drops of essential oil to a cold compress to ease swelling
