Natural Insect Bite Oil

Natural Insect Bite Oil

 

1 tablespoon (15 ml) vegetable oil
1 teaspoon (5 ml) lavender essential oil

 

For minor bug bites and the irritating itch that accompanies them, consider carrying this lavender-based insect bite oil with you the next time you venture into the great outdoors. This folkloric formula calls for a 1 to 3 ratio of lavender essential oil to plain vegetable oil. Combine the vegetable and lavender oils in a small glass jar and shake well to distribute. Dab a small amount directly on fresh bug bites. Keep oil sealed and store in a cool, dark place when not in use.
