Ever since I was a little kid mosquitoes have always loved me, regardless of how much bug repellent I used! So I thought I would start off this summer series with my favorite doTERRA essential oils for both mosquito repellent and for treating my bites after I get them.
Last night, the weather was perfect here in Cabo; a light breeze and low-70’s, so I decided I wanted to sleep with the doors open.
I had been sitting outside so I had already applied my TerraShield to the exposed parts of my hands, arms, ears (yes, mosquitoes like my ears), and feet, so I figured I would be safe.
But I wasn’t… I woke up at 3am with about 6 new bites on my arms!! And they were ITCHY and already starting to swell up!!
I immediately grabbed my go-to items and started dabbing away at my bites and by morning the itchiness and swelling was gone!!!
Here is my go-to routine for treating mosquito bites… I hope it helps you too!
MY ANTI-MOSQUITO BITE PLAN FOR SUMMER:
2. Purify (Cleansing Blend)
– features Lemon, Siberian Fir, Citronella, Lime, Melaleuca (Tea Tree), and Cilantro essential oil
– a blend of Frankincense, Helichrysm, Melaleuca (Tea Tree), Cedarwood, and Lavender in a protective ointment soothes so many skin woes.
1. I put 1 drop of Purify blend (undiluted) on the bite and dab it in, then using my fingers I spread it around and apply it to as many bites as I can reach. I keep dripping 1 drop at a time on my bites until I’ve covered them all.
2. Repeat the same process above with diluted or undiluted Melaleuca, Lavender, and Frankincense.
3. Then cover all the bites with a small dab of Correct X.
