We're getting ready here in my neck of the woods for mosquito season and it promises to be pretty rough. What brought this to mind was an allergy reaction I had this week.
I broke out in hives and honestly, I have no idea why. So, while I haven't figured out what caused this breakout, I knew immediately which oils to use to eliminate the itch.
So, here's what I did.
One day I used lavender, the next day melrose and then on the third day I used peppermint. I have to say that all 3 essential oils eliminated the itching immediately. The effect lasted for several hours so I applied the oils in the morning and again before bedtime. The hives are slowly going away – woo hoo!!!
When mosquito season finally rolls around, I'll be prepared with a good supply of the above.
Oh – one more thing – you can "layer" the above oils as well. Simply apply all three!
