My youngest niece was playing in the yard the other night & walked through a fire-ant bed. She had ant bites all the way up both of her legs. The were instantly big, swollen, red, & painful. Now, my sister has the Everyday Oils kit, so I told her to pull out the Peppermint & I went to get the V-6. After one application, my niece immediately stopped crying & I never even had to apply v-6.

I'm not sure why I suggested Peppermint before Purification because that is generally what my kids use for bites. I guess God knew what she needed so that was the first thought that came to me. They reapplied before bed. The next morning no signs of bites at all!
