Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Being pregnant, I am currently quite a mosquito magnet! I started applying Tea Tree oil or Lavender to my bites and they would subside very quickly.

A few days ago I had more than 20 bites after being out side for a short time. Since I didn't want to use that much oil, I took a cotton pad and soaked it with witch hazel, then added a couple drops of the above mentioned oils in order to wipe the whole affected area. Within a few minutes the bites were no longer visible. I re-applied a few hours later when there was some itching, but overall it has been a very effective method this summer.
