Itchy bites can really bug you.
We have a few tricks up our sleeve to help ease the itch & swelling of those inevitable bug bites and stings.
Tea Tree Oil - This natural oil is capable of alleviating itching, pain, and swelling, according to Women's Health and dermatologist Neal Schultz, MD. Tea tree oil is also antibacterial, which can help prevent infection of the bug bite. Add it to your cart >>
Lavender Essential Oil - Dr. Schultz says dabbing a few drops of lavender oil to the itchy or painful bite can help dull the sensation—and help you resist touching and picking at it. We recommend diluting the Lavender Essential Oil with a few drops of water or a carrier oil such as coconut oil (which can also soothe the itchy, red skin, and is antibacterial) before use directly on skin to prevent any irritation from the oil.

Soothe inflammation and heal your skin! Eric Zielinski, DC (Dr. Z) says Calendula is soothing, healing and can help with fungal infections, rashes, sunburns, and so much more. A 2012 laboratory study found that calendula oil had SPF properties as a cream mixture. Anti-inflammatory herbs, flowers, and essential oils have a well-deserved place in natural remedies, and calendula is one of the best, as it can be generally used as a base for body care ointments.
