After Bites


After Sun Spray

Use for insect bites or after a long day in the sun.

Cut garlic clove in half and apply cut side direct to bite for immediate relief of bee or wasp stings.  Apply Purification and Lavender to bite for lasting relief.

For ticks:  apply 1 drop Peppermint or *Thieves essential oil direct to tick – it should wiggle out on it’s own.  *Thieves is a hot oil and can feel hot when applied directly on skin, however, most people do not mind the heat as the objective is to get the tick out.  

After removal, apply Lavender essential oil to the site of bite.
