Mystery bug bites and Melaleuca

My daughters and I attended a birthday party this afternoon at a park where it was quite warm with a lot of ants and other bugs around.  We had a really nice time.  Later in the evening, my eldest daughter came out to show me a bump on her leg. She said it itched really bad. When I looked at it, there was a lump with a red circle around it and I had no idea what kind of a bite it was.  I put melaleuca on it right away and then got my Modern Essentials book to look up insect bites and what oils to use.  Most everything said lavender and melaleuca.  She said it was still itchy so I put lavender on it.  By the time she went to bed, the swelling and redness had all but disappeared.  I love my essential oils.  🙂
