Insect stings and bites

Before treating an insect sling, make sure that you get the sting out if at all possible, using tweezers.
• For wasp and bee stings apply repeated cold compresses of witch hazel and lavender until the immediate pain has eased. Then apply a couple of drops of lavender or ti-tree directly to the sting, repeating as necessary.
• For mosquito bites, apply neat lavender or ti-tree as required. If the bite becomes swollen and painful, apply cold compresses of lavender and german chamomile.
