Bug Bites No More: 3 Oils to Soothe the Itch

Bug Bites No More: 3 Oils to Soothe the Itch

Summertime is here and so are bug bites.

I’m sure we’ve all gotten a few bites here and there (some of us more than others), but regardless they can make the outdoors less enjoyable for everyone.

For most people, they will have mild reactions to insect bites, but they can easily become uncomfortable, especially for young children. Itchy, swollen, red bumps are not comfortable for anybody to deal with, but as always, we have a few oils that can help out with repelling those undesirable insects or soothing the aftermath of bug bites!


Basil is known as a gentle oil that not only repels insects, but can also help to soothe the itchiness that comes with bug bites!

Basil has anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce the itching and swelling, soothing your irritated skin.

The sweet, herbaceous oil is also useful for the following:

  • Energizing & uplifting the mind
  • Boosts hair health
  • Eases sore muscles

Camphor White is another excellent choice for relieving the pain & discomfort of dry, scratchy bug bites.

If your bug bites are more than a mild discomfort, we do not recommend using this oil as the warming effect it provides could further irritate your skin, so please use with caution.

This sharp, camphoraceous, woody oil is also helpful for the following:

  • Eases congestion due to cold symptoms
  • Soothes mild skin inflammation
  • Calms the nervous system


Here’s our personal favorite for bug bites- spearmint oil!

Minty oils are often seen as too strong unless blended with a gentle oil or extra carrier oil, however Spearmint is known for being a gentle mint oil (compared to their counterpart–Peppermint essential oil).

Spearmint is a cooling oil when applied topically to the skin, along with being a natural insect repellent, it’s an oil perfect for protecting your skin & soothing to the touch!

This sweet, minty, slightly fruity oil is also excellent for the following:

  • Easing nausea/headaches
  • Soothing for sensitive skin
  • Boosts focus
