How To Treat Insect Bites with Tea Tree Oil

Have you been bitten by an insect? It stings, right. The pain can be anywhere between a mild prick to a downright painful stinging sensation. Most bites cause mild stinging or itching. This is common and should not be a cause of concern for you. Common symptoms of an insect bite include itching, redness, skin rash, stinging sensation, or swelling.

Some bites can trigger a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires emergency care. Breathing difficulty, facial swelling, dizziness,confusion, and hives are symptoms of such a reaction. Under normal circumstances, you would probably rub it off or use basic antiseptic creams to treat the wound.Using a general medication may seem like a logical choice, but is it the right thing to do?

Have you ever thought about using tea tree oil to treat insect bites? Suppose you have been bitten by a mosquito or an ant. The immediate reaction will be to scratch the wounded area which would be followed by a stinging or numbing sensation. Plus, there would be visible inflammation in the affected area. Instead of using general medication or ointments, use tea tree oil.

Put a few drops of pure tea tree oil on a cotton ball and apply it directly on the wounds. The oil has an immediate anti-inflammatory effect which reduces the redness in the wound and nearby areas. The tea tree oil, being anti-bacterial in nature, helps to prevent bacterial growth. If the wound is severe, then don’t worry. The oil is anti-septic and will work its magic to provide a soothing effect.

Did you know that insects absolutely hate tea tree oil? You can use tea tree oil infused bug repellants or you can simply apply the oil to the exposed areas of your body. The insects will steer clear from you and you won’t have to bother about insect bites at all. Prevention is definitely better than cure. After all, who wants to keep up with the irritation, pain and hassles that follow a bug bite.

For those who are not comfortable in applying tea tree oil directly to the skin, the oil can always be mixed with an appropriate carrier medium before being applied. This will ensure that you get the healing benefits of the oil without worrying about the concentration of the oil being too much for your skin to handle.
