Insect Bite Treatment - Recipe

This Insect Bite Treatment is a must have for anyone who spends time outdoors. It also works really well as a zit zapper!


45 ml (3 tbsp) Witch Hazel
45 ml (3 tbsp) Alcohol (can use denatured alcohol, rubbing alcohol, or vodka)
2 ml (1/2 tsp) Calendula Oil
10 ml (2 tsp) Polysorbate 20
5 ml (1 tsp) Skin Therapy Essential Oil Blend

METHOD: Mix the Calendula Oil, the Polysorbate 20, and the Skin Therapy Essential Oil Blend together in a glass measuring cup. Let them sit together for a few minutes. Then add the Alcohol and the Witch Hazel. Stir well and pour into glass rollerball containers. Shake well before use. (You could also store your mixture in a glass bottle until ready to put in the rollerball containers).
