I know, I know, it’s been awhile. We’ve been busy, still are. But recently I was inspired to post again. It’s something so great that i just had to tell you guys about. Okay so let me just jump to the good stuff, we started using Young Living essential oils. Seems like such a simple small thing but it has really impacted our life in a short amount of time.
My son is allergic to mosquito bites, they get really swollen, super itchy, he gets multiple bites at one time, just awful for him. After a bite, he usually spends the day with an ice pack, Benadryl, hydrocortisone for topical itching and nonstop activities to keep his hands busy so he doesn’t scratch and a general grumpy mood. This clearly is not how someone wants to spend their summer. We wanted a natural remedy but felt uneducated and unprepared to treat naturally so we would always end up getting into a situation where we had to rely on strong drugs, with all their nasty side effects. Until I started searching for bug spray recipes, that’s how I found Young Living. I asked around and heard they are THE BEST, which is important because I wanted to use them on my children. So pure, you can ingest them and even use while pregnant. Okay, sold. I ordered a starter kit and off we went.
Moments after my starter kit arrived my son got a mosquito nite, which is not that unusual , he must taste like chocolate to those bugs. I instantly opened my desk reference manual to find out what to put on it. I grabbed the lavender and my Tilvee Calendula and comfrey healing balm and rubbed both in. Within seconds the bite started to get smaller, no uncontrollable itching, no screaming. I had to reapply a few times over the next 24 hours but he never had the urge to itch it, which meant no swelling. None. He has had a few dozen bites since and same treatment, no swelling. If he gets multiple bites at once, say in the middle of the night, those jerks get in his bedroom, I reapply every 10 minutes as the desk reference suggest until he gets relief. The most I’ve had to do is 3 applications every 10 minutes. So amazing, we are hooked, astonished, skeptics turned believers.
I will share more of our successful remedies as we discover them.
Here is what we did:
Lavender – Mosquito bites. Stopped itching and eliminated allergic response in my family members. Immediately we ran (didn’t walk) and applied 1 drop neat on site. We reapplied every 10 minutes until reaction started to subside. And then we applied as needed throughout the day and before bed to stop involuntary nighttime itching.
We use Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils because they are extremely pure and contain no synthetic ingredients.
