What Is The Way To Handle Bites and Stings With Essential oils?

Bites and stings

Essential oils are well known for their ability to keep you sting free and are the active ingredient in many brand-name products.

 

In case of animal bites, wash the area with a mild soap and warm water in which with thyme, or lavender added. Then cover the wound with a bandage, piece of gauze, or plaster to which you have added 4 drops of lavender and 3 drops of thyme.

 

In case of insect sting, remove it if visible sting, but try not to squeeze and break the venom bag which may be attached. Apply 1 drop of neat lavender oil directly to the site of sting. Continue to apply neat lavender, a drop at a time, every 5 minutes or as soon as the drop can be seen to be absorbed, until a total of 10 drops has been reached.

 

Swelling: first apply neat lavender to the area, then neat chamomile. One drop can be rubbed to cover quite a large area---use as many drops as you need. If the swelling is excessive as a result of an allergic reaction, it should be seen by a doctor as soon as possible. On you way there apply 1 drop of chamomile to the neck area, every 5 minutes to a maximum total of 4 drops.

 

Bees

Apply a cold compress to the area, leave it for several hours or as long as possible. Apply 1 drop of neat chamomile 3 times/day for 2 days.
