Itching and bug bites

About a month ago I was visiting three of my granddaughter's and one of the things that we did just before dusk is we went for a walk with them on their bikes. Moisquitos began to bite them. They did not bother me that night! When we got inside the girls were itching like crazy and I had my essential oils in my purse. Good thing that I did! I put a drop of Tea Tree Essential Oil on each place where they were bitten by those nasty pests and quickly the itching stopped and the bites began to heal! A few mornings ago I woke to the top of my hand itching and I saw that I had two small bug bites. I got up and put Tea Tree Essential Oil on them and they stopped itching within a few minutes and the bug bites were gone in a few hours. Today my mom went for a walk and came back saying that apparently somes fleas had attacked her feet. I gave her my bottle of Tea Tree Essential Oil had she was fine quickly! Thanks for Tea Tree Essential Oil!

Tea tree oil works for a number of things I use some in my homemade deodorant because it kills bacteria on your skin that causes really bad odor

@hereandthere I use baking soda, cornstarch, coconut oil, tea tree oil and sweet orange essential oil. They have many videos on YouTube on how to make homemade deodorant.

it sounds like a good idea to always have a bottle of tea tree oil at home and one in your bag, too.

I do and it was lucky for me to have them in my bag to help my granddaughter's then.
