Living in Hawaii, I'll wake up scratching from bug bites constantly. When pests like mosquitos attack, they draw a tiny amount of blood while simultaneously injecting some of their own saliva into your skin. This foreign substance causes your body to release histamine as an immunity defense, which can result in itchiness. Luckily, if you find yourself up all night scratching like I used too, essential oils can help provide some relief.
This simple DIY combines the powerful soothing properties of Lavender and Melaleuca oils to help alleviate skin irritation and put your mind at ease.
As an alternative option, try adding doTERRA’s Purify Cleansing Blend to your roller bottle instead. This powerful blend of citrus and fir oils helps cleanse and protect the skin.
Once you’ve created your Bug Bite Relief blend, be sure to have it on hand for instant bug bite relief.
2 teaspoons doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
10 drops Lavender essential oil
10 drops Melaleuca essential oil
15–20 drops Purify essential oil
