Brush up against an unfriendly plant and you will know it almost immediately. Uncontrollable itching…relentless scratching…spreading all over.
Many essential oils can soothe the itch and eliminate the scratch! Here is a recipe from doTERRA for a natural lotion to take on your next camping trip.
1 tablespoon sea salt • 1 tablespoon baking soda • 1 tablespoon bentonite clay
4 drops each of Geranium, Lavender, Melaleuca, and Roman Chamomile and enough water to form a paste.
Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl and mix. Slowly add water and stir until a smooth past is created. Add the essential oils. transfer to a squeeze bottle or jar with a lid and apply where needed.
