Wasp and bee bite

Wasp and bee bite

We now have quite a lot of wasps and bees, and since the children often run around mindlessly, I've had minor heart attacks countless times because one of them is stung. Yes, I know I'm a bit of a para-mom, but I sure as hell mixed in a spray to ease the pain and itchiness in the event of an accident like this.

Peppermint-thyme spray


20 drops of peppermint essential oil
10 drops of thyme essential oil
1/4 cup witch hazel
1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel


Mix the essential oils in a spray bottle, then add the aloe vera gel and witch hazel flower water. Shake thoroughly before each use and spray on the sting every 2-3 hours.

I found the recipe in the book Aromatherapy for Beginners.
