Bee Stings and Insect Bites
There is nothing as much fun as being bitten or stung by any variety of insect. Bee stings especially can be painful and sometimes even life threatening. One of the quickest and most effective way of soothing insect bites and bee stings is to rub the purest lavender essential oil available. The more potent the better. Preferably CPTG (Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade) essential oil. It will give quicker relief than any other grade of essential oil.
Be sure to remove the stinger if stung by a bee, then apply the essential oil. After applying the lavender essential oil, eucalyptus or basil can also be applied. Applying a cold compress after the essential oils can also aid in pain relief.
Very few people have allergic reactions to bee stings, only about 3-4% of the population. If you are allergic, seek medical attention.
