Treatment of Spider Bites with Essential Oils

Spider Bites: 

Spider bites are often itchy, swollen, and slightly painful. Refrain from scratching during treatment, as this can cause the venom to spread and increase your discomfort. Seek emergency treatment if you have been bitten by a poisonous spider such as a brown recluse or black widow.

Neat Lavender Treatment: 

Lavender essential oil aids in detoxification while helping stop the pain and itching associated with spider bites. Using your fingertips, apply 1 drop of lavender essential oil to the bite as soon after it occurs as possible. Repeat this treatment every 1 to 2 hours until the pain and itching subside.

NEAT BASIL TREATMENT: 

Basil essential oil has a numbing effect that stops pain and itching; it also helps soothe inflammation. Using your fingertips, apply 1 drop of basil essential oil to the bite as soon after it occurs as possible. Repeat this treatment every 1 to 2 hours until the pain and itching subside.
