I know we are almost to the middle of November and it seems like mosquito bites should be over with for a bit, but not here in Florida. This past weekend was the beginning of hunting season and I spent most of my time out in the woods.
I had forgotten to take along the bug spray but it was quite chilly so I didn’t buy any on the way either. That was a big mistake!
We found a game trail and decided to check it out. Not long down the trail I was attacked by mosquitoes and bitten several times near my right eye. Ughhh…. that really hurt. Not too mention it was quite ugly and itchy.
Well, I should’ve remembered the bug spray the next day but again I forgot. That’s what happens when you get up before the sun… or at least that’s what happens to me. The worst part was that it got quite warm towards the afternoon. Then I was once again swarmed by mosquitoes will on a trail.
I am like a mosquito magnet. Some of the other people with me never got bit and some got one or two bites. I was covered wherever I had no clothing which was my face. As soon as I took a glove off I got bit a couple times on the hand too.
I really wanted to cry because my face was covered in bites. Talk about sore and itchy, it was quite miserable. I didn’t have anything on me but when I got home I headed to the medicine cabinet. This is a sure fire way to handle the itch. This combination also works well for rashes and even acne. (Be sure to test for allergies on a small area first.) I prefer the smell of Lavender oil but Tea Tree was all I currently had on hand.
Stop The Itch Cream
Combine all the ingredients together and apply to bites or rash. This should begin to work in a minute or two. The tea tree oil has antibacterial properties that can help to heal the bites as well.
Tea Tree oil and Lavender can also help to repel mosquitos too.
