My Story: How I Use Essential Oils for Bug Bites

We live in Texas, so there are bugs EVERYWHERE. And almost all of them bite!! Ants, mosquitos, spiders, assassin bugs, and on and on!

Thankfully, Young Living has an essential oil blend that we LOVE for relieving the itch! It’s called Purification, and it’s a combo of Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Rosemary, Myrtle, and Tea Tree oils.

I just rub it on a bug bite, and it helps draw out the poison! My kids love it too, and they apply it themselves!

For a particularly bad bite, which we were pretty certain was a black widow bite, we used Purification, Basil oil, and Bentontite clay. I was prepping us to head to the ER, but the redness and swelling diminished so much in just an hour, that we stayed home. I applied the mixture just one more time and the bite healed right up!
