Maz who follows this blog offers this advice about my insect bites, “Have you tried dabbing a spot of Lavender essential oil on the bite. I always carry a small bottle with me when in Spain & France and everyone else are always dabbing it on their bites to stop the itching. I'm lucky - they don't like my blood. Oh and the lavender will help you sleep as well.”
Thanks for that Maz. As it happens the bites have now gone down but I will bear it in mind for the next time!
