Basil Essential Oil for Bites

by HFHR

Whenever I'm out in the yard or garden I simply run to the nearest plantain plant if I get a mosquito bite because this seems to work fabulously. Believe me, this is very frequent here in Minnesota since we have squadrons of mosquitos the size of small aircraft! Yet sometimes plantain isn't handy and I recently discovered that carrying a bottle of basil essential oil in my purse is the ticket. Just one drop on any bite or sting and the itch is gone within 10 minutes and doesn't return! This is like a miracle oil for me since I'm highly sensitive to bites and they typically last for days if not weeks. Hope it works for you too!


PS: If you have basil plant in your garden, a couple leaves used as a poultice will work also :-)
