My 7-year-old granddaughter came to my house after school. While she was doing her homework, she had an area on her hand that was itchy.

I looked at the spot, and it looked like a bug bite; it was raised and red. She said that they had been outside for recess and that she had been playing in the leaves.

I used a little bit of olive oil along with a drop of Frankincense essential oil and rubbed that on the spot. After doing her homework -- about 15 minutes later -- I looked at the spot, and it was gone! I took pictures of the before and after to show her mom.
