So today I was thinking about what I was going to blog about today when my husband came home with his shirt off. Well I thought he was hot but in reality he had been stung by a wasp. He had the windows down in our vehicle and one flew in and stung him not once but twice before he was able to pull over and take his shirt off.
I had sent a text to a friend of mine asking what type of oils I could use for his bites. She responded with these instructions:
- First make sure the stinger is removed
- Apply 1-2 drops of Purify. This will draw out the poison and start to ease the pain. Apply 2-3 times for a few days
- Next apply 1-2 drops of Lavender. Lavender will help with inflammation and pain. Apply every 15-30 minutes as needed.
Well it was a success! After about 30 minutes I looked at his back and the welts were almost gone! The swelling had gone down so was the painI did a second application and honestly cannot believe how well this worked my husband says it doesn’t hurt anymore.
These two oils are a must have in your first aid kit they are so versatile in their uses.
