Bug Bite Relief Recipe Roll-On

Bug Bite Relief Recipe Roll-On

This bug bite relief recipe is terrific. I travel a lot and spend a lot of time outdoors. I can tell you stories about mosquito swarms in Egypt after the first rains in 8 years, southern US battles with no-see-ums, and black fly swarms on Prince Edward Island that made our run at breakneck speed to safety from the swarm. Waking up with 50 plus bites on each leg, yes, this is all true. I am the ultimate delicacy for blood-sucking bugs. They love me. So I developed this easy to transport and use Bug Bite Relief Recipe for my own sanity and relief. Don’t let the simpleness of this bug bite relief recipe fool you. It really works.
Bug Bite Relief Recipe
This simple bite stick is lovely for bug bites like No-See-Ums, Mosquitoes, black flies, and gnats.
Use a small 10 ml roller container. If you don’t have roller containers, you can use a Boston round bottle or another small bottle you have on hand. Boston round bottles are also called tincture bottle. Mainly you want to use this a drop at a time, if not in a roll-on container.
Use 1-2 ml essential oil blend and 8-9ml carrier oil.
Use equal parts of the following essential oils.

Oils you will need.

Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Peppermint (Melaleuca alternifolia)
Lemon (Citrus limon)
You can vary your ratios depending on what works for you. Sometimes I use a little extra Peppermint for cooling relief. Other times I use a bit more Tea Tree if I have been scratching a lot.
Roll on the bites for relief.
The variations of the essential oil has to do with the reaction you are experiencing. Personally, I react horribly to bug bites and have huge welts, and I use a higher level to keep me from itching. Use a lower level for children.
The carrier oil can be calendula or St. John’s Wort oil, or almost any other carrier oil you desire. Both of these carrier oils are soothing and consequently offer relief for bug bites. I know this recipe seems like it is too easy to work, but it does provide me a ton of relief and comfort. Besides, while traveling this blend can be used as an inhalation for nausea, headaches and sore muscles. As a result of the multi-use option of this easy to travel with combination, I take this with me wherever I go. Since it seems to me, that no matter where I go I am a delicacy for that nations bugs, while this may be optional for some,  having a bug bite relief recipe on hand is a travel must-have for me.
