Bug bites, what to do? A seriously good recipe

I do love the warm weather, but the bugs can be a bit fierce this time of the year. We have enjoyed some lovely summer vacations in Spain (Costa Blanca). Great summer weather, no bugs. Upstate NY? Great weather, oodles of bugs!

This year we discovered a great formula to put on the bug bites. It really works.
Base oil: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used extra virgin olive oil)
10 drops Lavender essential oil
10 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops Rosemary essential oil

The oils we have been using are Aura Cacia. They seem to be very good quality and not too pricey.

Get a bite? Dab on a little of the recipe. Works a treat. No red swelling. No itching. Disappears overnight.

Enjoy the summer
