Indeed, if you use peppermint oil for bug bites, you are going to get almost immediate results, its refreshing aroma and also its very powerful antiseptic compounds are going to get rid of the pain and most importantly, because peppermint oil contains huge amounts of anti-inflammatory compounds, it’s going to make bug bites go away very quickly.
However, I need to give you a warning, after all, you are using an essential oil, it’s not medicine, so, be very careful, if you have very serious bug bites, then, you need to consult with a doctor or even better, you need to head to the emergency room!
A lot of people are simply stupid, for example, they get bit by venomous spiders for example and the first thing they think of is applying some vinegar or some strange home remedy and think that it will be all right!
Don’t be stupid, if you have been bitten by dangerous bugs or insects, you need to consult with a doctor very quickly, especially knowing that a large number of people are allergic to many bugs and insects nowadays, so, be very careful, don’t play with fire, it’s your life you are risking.
With this said, let me show you how you can use peppermint oil for bug bites, and here, I’m talking about minor ones, small ones.
As mentioned before, if you suspect that you have been bitten by a venomous bug, or that you are developing certain allergic reaction to your bug bites, then, you need to head immediately to the emergency room, and please, do not wait on this, it can be life-threatening!
So, take one teaspoon of peppermint oil, half a teaspoon of tea tree oil, and one teaspoon of almond oil.
Mix everything very well, then, using a cotton ball, I want you to apply onto your bug bites, within a very short period of time, you are going to feel a fantastic feeling of relief and freshness, and most importantly, by using this amazing peppermint oil for bug bites, you will disinfect your skin since it contains huge amounts of tea tree oil.
However, you have to be careful, you have to understand that you are dealing with an essential oil, meaning that if you use too much peppermint oil and tea tree oil directly onto your skin, without the use of a carrier oil, in this case, almond oil, then, you have only yourself to blame, because you are not only going to increase inflammations, but you will also be hurting your skin terribly!
I don’t want this happening to you, so, always use a small amount of essential oils, it’s for your own safety.
Please, if you have a question or a comment about preparing/making or applying this fantastic peppermint oil for bug bites, don’t hesitate to ask me in the section below, I will be very happy to help you.
