Ingredients

 


Instructions

  1. Start by adding 1/3 cup of bentonite clay to a medium sized mixing bowl
  2. Add 3 tablespoons on witch hazel
  3. Add 7 drops each of lavender, tea tree, and peppermint essential oils
  4. Mix well.  Your lotion may be a bit lumpy, so I advise getting your hands dirty and squish it around to help get it smooth.  You may also need to use a stainless steel mesh strainer and push the lotion through it to get it very smooth.
  5. Whenever you see a bug bite on your skin, add some of this lotion and let it dry on your skin.  Re-apply as needed if it is still inflamed and itchy.


Notes

This will make about 1/2 cup of natural itch relief cream.
