For the past few weekends I’ve been spending time in my backyard clearing out old planter beds, weeding, putting in new plants, and doing all of the things I’m never fully confident in. I don’t have a green thumb so I’m hoping for the best when it comes to the new growth. Anyway, the whole time I’ve been outside working away, I hadn’t noticed that I wasn’t alone… far from it, it turns out. During my adventures outdoors I had attracted a few different species of ‘pests’ that decided my flesh and blood might make a nice meal. It hasn’t been until the evening time that I noticed the raised bumps on my skin on my legs, feet and parts of my arms. The bumps aren’t the problem, it’s the uncomfortable itch that always follows after you get kissed by these pests. ~ doTERRA has several oils that come in real handy when you experience these things. The first route of defense would be to use our natural repellent, TerraShield, before even heading outside to work. ( you’d think I would have done this out of habit, but Nooooo…) If you don’t have that oil blend, Eucalyptus oil, Cedarwood, Arborvitae, Purify, and Lemongrass are all good choices. And if you do get kissed while outside, you can safely use our Lavender and Peppermint oils, layered topically over the kiss, and this will relive your skin quickly. You can also try a bit of Helichrysum oil, Patchouli, and/or Melaleuca oil to help calm down your skin. And when you add any of these oils to our unscented Hand and Body Lotion you can spread the relief over a larger area of your exposed skin, helping to relieve any discomfort. ~ There is always something to try when it comes to our skin and doTERRA has your back for all of the things that could possibly come up.
Have a great day! Jana
