Today is our last day up here on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. Our yearly tradition of a family reunion. I just love it up here. The salt air, the ocean, the seafood, the pace.
What I don't love....the green flies.
These little demons from hell...
When they bite you, it HURTS! And then you get a huge welt that itches and ends up looking and feeling like you got punched for days.
I managed to go our whole vacation without one until today. Within 10 minutes, it swelled up. I immediately put lavender essential oil on it...straight undiluted. It took 5 minuted for it to stop itching and just another 10 minutes for the welt and the pain to disappear completely.
Lavender essential oil is one essential oil that I am totally comfortable using undiluted in cases such as this for immediate results for minor first aid.
ps.... as I continue with my 5 month advanced aromatherapy training , I will be posting regular essential oil tips!....stay tuned!
