While I had my essential oils out to make the Aloe Vera Burn Treatment a couple weeks ago, I used the same oils to make this all natural bug-bite relief roll-on. The Boy is a mosquito magnet and this works better for relieving itchy bug bites than any over-the-counter remedy we’ve tried. And since it doesn’t contain alcohol, it doesn’t sting if the skin around a bite is irritated.
- A small roll-on bottle
- Carrier oil – I used safflower oil, but grapeseed or sweet almond oil works well, too
- Lavender essential oil
- Tea tree oil
- One vitamin E capsule
If you can’t find roll-on bottles locally, you can order them online. I get mine here and try to keep a half dozen or so on hand. They’re great for all kinds of essential oil projects.
Prick the Vitamin E capsule with a pin or toothpick and squeeze the oil into your bottle. Add 10 drops of lavender oil, 10 drops of tea tree oil, and fill the rest of the way with carrier oil. Snap the ball into place, cap the bottle and shake well.
To use, just roll a small amount on the itchy spots.
