Hive are swollen bumps on the skin and appear suddenly. While hives usually itch, they sometimes sting or burn. The raised patches vary in size, with some being about the diameter of a pencil eraser and others being as large as dinner plates. They can also join at their edges to form much larger areas called plaques. Hives typically respond well to essential oils, but you should seek emergency treatment if they are accompanied by vomiting or shortness of breath, or if home remedies fail to bring relief.
NEAT BASIL TREATMENT:
Basil essential oil is an effective analgesic that stops the pain and itching associated with hives, lowering the risk of scratching and causing the problem to worsen. Using a cotton ball, apply a small amount of basil essential oil to each affected area, allowing it to penetrate. Repeat this treatment every 3 to 4 hours as needed.
NEAT MYRRH TREATMENT:
Myrrh essential oil has anti-inflammatory and astringent properties that make it ideal for soothing serious itching and addressing the swelling that accompanies hives. Using a cotton ball or your fingertips, apply a small amount of myrrh essential oil to each affected area, allowing it to penetrate. Repeat this treatment every 3 to 4 hours as needed.
