Homemade Bug Bite Relief
I decided to try my hand at making some homemade bug bite relief after my daughter was bitten several times and could not stop itching! You guys, this was so fun and easy to make! I enjoyed the entire process. Ordering the cute little bottles. Digging out my essential oils. Then finally putting it all together in the kitchen with Sienna’s help. (She’s a great bottle holder!)
This Bug Bite relief roll-on is perfect for sticking in your purse, diaper bag , pocket or backpack. You never know when you’ll get attacked by mosquitoes, flies, or other annoying pests! If you’re tired of being eaten alive by mosquitoes, you’ll definitely want to have this on hand. It works well for cooling itchiness, but I also like to roll it on in a zig zag motion on my arms and legs to help ward off the pests in the first place.
Here’s how to make Homemade Bug Bite Relief:
- 10ml glass roll on bottle

- 3 drops lavender essential oil
- 2 drops tea tree essential oil
