In northern Wisconsin, I do not know how a male black widow spider got in the armpit of my sweater. But it managed to bite me which I felt strongly. No marks, nothing for 3 days, then huge large bites all over the side of my breast. It managed to get into my bra & just bit a large area. I soaked burdock leaves and applied the warm burdock. Then followed it with Young Living Lavender Essential oil covered with Animal Scents ointment. It took 3 weeks for the blisters, scabs and pain to disappear. There is no scarring left. The one area was about 4x8 inches. I did not seek medical attention. The nerve pain was almost unbearable, but Peace and Calming oil helped greatly.

Praise God for the essential oils. I am now using Melrose oil and Helichrysum oil covered with Animal Scent ointment.
