My husband once counted somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 chigger bites on his ankles and legs, after we stupidly strayed off a hiking trail many years ago.
- I GAVE, dammit!
I always use my formula of essential oils to treat this condition
which seldom fails to deal with it. The oils are tea tree, lemon grass, patchouli, and lavender at a nine to one ratio with a carrier oil, ie, ten ml of the essential oils to one hundred of carrier oil.
The formula is as follows. One part each of Patchouli, Lemon Grass, Lavender and Tea Tree oils to ten parts of Neem oil. If you cannot get Neem oil any good vegetable oil may be used. People sometimes get confused about these amounts but to put it more simply, if you use 2.5ml of the essential oils, making a total of 10ml you dilute that with 100ml of the carrier oil.
Both sites seem really knowledgeful and holistic. I have two pigs with fungal infections. I am currently using a lyme and sulfur dip, but I think I will give the essential oils a try. My piggies HATE the dip, and it makes them smell like rotten eggs.
