We are welcoming the warm weather with open arms as we approach Summer and already, we are experiencing the pesky insects, such as mosquitoes, also joining us. If you are looking to create your own Natural Insect Repellent you can learn more about that here. Within this blog we are going to focus on what to use after you have experienced an insect bite.
This context and recipe can be taken on board for any small insect bite but to understand what happens in the body and topically on the skin we are going to focus on mosquito bites. When a mosquito lands on your skin and decides to have a taste by piercing your skin, it injects saliva into your skin and your body reacts to the salvia by creating a bump and itching. Essentials oils may help this reaction by minimising the inflammation and irritation on the skin.
