Thank you for visiting Herbs and Oils Hub!!
The plan was to stay overnight with my friends and they are not into natural remedies. So I tried soap and witch hazel and the itching continued. It was miserable!
So when I got home the next morning (itching all the way) , I immediately took a bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil and spread some peppermint oil on all of the bites.I instantly felt the warmth of the peppermint oil penetrating into my skin. AND THE ITCHING STOPPED!!! Immediately!! If I had sensitive skin I might have used peppermint oil and a carrier oil. But honestly, I just wanted fast relief. This is just a little testimonial that essential oils (and herbal remedies DO work) !!!
