the only bug bite relief you need to know right now

We recently moved to South Texas. We LOVE the weather here – it allows us to be able to do all the things we love: from campouts to barbeques and spending lots of time outside.  What we haven’t loved though is an increase in bug bites. And I’m talking about ALL OF THE BUG BITES!  When these mosquitos attack, they draw a tiny amount of blood while simultaneously injecting some of their own salivae into your skin. This foreign substance causes your body to release histamine as an immunity defense, which can result in itchiness. Luckily, I’ve found the essential oils blend that helps relieve the itch, so I can get a good night’s sleep!

This simple DIY combines the powerful soothing properties of Lavender with the cooling impact of Peppermint. Together, these oils help alleviate skin irritation and put your mind at ease.

This is a great option to try: add Purify Cleansing Blend to your roller bottle instead. This powerful blend of citrus and fir oils helps cleanse and protect the skin.


2 teaspoons  Fractionated Coconut Oil
10 drops Lavender essential oil
10 drops Peppermint essential oil
As an alternative, you can also use this:

15–20 drops Purify essential oil

Add Fractionated Coconut Oil to empty 10 mL roller bottle.
Next, add the essential oils of your choice.
Secure the lid to your roller bottle and shake until ingredients combine.
Apply as needed.

Don’t let bugs ruin your summer fun. Once you’ve created your Bug Bite Relief blend, be sure to have it on hand at the next outdoor activity.

I hope this helps to bring some relief! Do you have a favorite way to get rid of the itch? Let me know!
