Soothing Yellow Jacket / Wasp Stings with Essential Oils

by Cynthe on April 2, 2008

As long as we’re chatting about insect stings & spider bites, thought I’d include another therapeutic essential oils self-help success story:

always buy the best essential oilsNotes from 9-5-2004
My girlfriend Pam got stung by a mad yellow jacket right on the tip of her big toe, while she was on the phone with me. Must have hit a nerve ’cause Pam said it felt like the toe had been smashed by a hammer!

Suggested she put LAVENDER essential oil and a great Young Living Oils blend called Purification on it immediately…. or as soon as she could.

Pam told me later the pain from the sting diminished instantly with the therapeutic essential oils applications! How’s that for a great summertime essential oils first aid tip!!

Thank you for sharing your tip about lavender oil for stings for years I have kept APIs Mel in the house.

Will definitely try it.

Hello!! I just got stung by a wasp and put this combination on immediately and the pain stopped just a few seconds after application. Thank you so much for sharing this combination.

I consulted google who led me to you as soon as my husband was stung on the head by a wasp. Well, 30 minutes after the sting because he tolerated it until it hurt too badly. I put the lavender and purification on it and very soon, he was fine! Thanks. By the way, I was stung not more than 20 minutes later, and the oils helpd but didn’t prevent a trip to after hours medical clinic for a shot. I usually have to do this after a sting, but this was on my thumb and the swelling didn’t have anywhere to go. Thanks for the remedy I will remember!

Glad to hear these essential oils helped! Frances ~ Curious, did you use them only once on yourself? Or several times? Sometimes Peppermint helps. And drinking LOTS of water, so your body can detox the venom.
