All Natural Mosquito/Bug Bite Healing Balm

I have five daughters.

Growing up we’ve had to deal with some pretty nasty mosquito bite reactions at times.
I’m talking where they would really swell up.
The bite would turn super red and hot to the touch and sometimes even form a blister at the site of the bite.
One of my daughters even got cellulitis from a bug bite turned real bad.
One thing I have learned is how powerful essential oils are.
Especially lavender and tea tree (to learn more about these wonderful oils and their multiple uses , click here)
for anything skin related.
It works amazingly well especially when applied immediately to the bite!!
Now whenever they get a really bad reaction or even before one starts, this is  my new go to remedy.
My homemade bug/mosquito bite balm can definitely prevent a bite from getting out of hand.
What I  love about this balm is that it is good for more  than bug bites,
it can easily be used as a botanical triple antibiotic ointment.
It is capable of killing bacteria on the skin and helps to prevent infections in scrapes, minor cuts, and burns.
It doesn’t stop at being anti- bacterial either.
Tea tree and oregano are well known for being anti- viral.
Today, with all the viruses going around I think this is  good to know  🙂

I’ve finally found something that really works to stifle nasty reactions right away.
This makes me happy 🙂
I am confident you will love my balm.  Now, I’m ready to enjoy summer without
worrying about dealing with severe mosquito reactions.  Bring it on !! 🙂

All Natural Mosquito/Bug Bite Healing Balm Recipe (Makes about 2 ounces)


1  1/2- ounces shea butter (about 3 Tablespoons) I recommend this one here.
1- teaspoon jojoba oil
30- drops lavender oil (this is the brand I use and trust) (make sure you  use either Lavandula angustifolia or officinalis)
15- drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca) oil
7- drops Oregano oil .

*** To see why we are sold on Plant Therapy oils above all others go here.
4- ounce jar – use an empty one you may have on hand or this one, if you prefer glass, then this one


Get a small bowl and add your shea butter and jojoba oil and stir them together,chopping up the shea butter with your spoon as you continue stirring it. This will eventually whip up nice and creamy like a smooth body butter. Chop, stir, chop, stir. This only takes a few minutes and you will have a whipped shea butter, no heating involved  🙂  You are trying to prevent heating up the ingredients as that always takes away from the qualities and potency of your product.
Next, add in your essential oils and continue to mix very well together. Now you are ready to put it in your little jar. This can be stored at room temperature in a cool, dark place.
