Its that time again when the mosquitoes come out and bite! I hate when they come back from their not long enough slumber. I am like candy to those evil blood sucking machines. Just the other day I was out looking at my garden and checking on our chickens and got 5 to 7 bites. Once I got inside, I went to my trusty essential oil recipes and whipped together this amazing anti-itch stick to help with the awful itching.
Anti-Itch Stick Recipe
- Fractured Coconut Oil
- Lemon Oil
- Peppermint Oil
- Lavender Oil
- Small Funnel (helpful but not necessary)
- Empty Roller Bottle (I got mine on Amazon)
Take your roller bottle and if the roller part is in the bottle pop it out so that you can add the ingredients. Add 10 drops of Peppermint, Lavender, and Lemon essential oil into the bottle. (I didn’t use the funnel for this part.) Once you have added your oils, then funnel in the fractured coconut oil to fill the rest of the bottle.
Note: From my research it was recommended to use a dark colored glass apposed to buying the clear bottles to help the shelf life of the mixture. Once you add the essential oils to the carrier oil they taken on the expiration date of the carrier oil.
Place the roller ball piece back into the bottle and make sure that it is all the way in. Screw on the lid and slowly tilt the bottle back and forth to mix the oils together. Add a label (I cut down a file label and wrote on it) so you know what it is.
Wow does this anti-itch stick really help when I apply it to my bug bites. You can bet I’ll be using this all summer long to keep the itch of my mosquito bites at bay.
*Disclaimer: I am in no way an expert at essential oils and can not guarantee results. These are just recipes that I have come up with by looking at what others have done and researching what oils are good for what. Also as you might have noticed I do not have one brand that I am loyal too. I am open to trying all brands of essential oils.
