Insect bites-such as mosquito and spider bites or bee stings-can be concerning for many people. Some fears are justified, since some bites and stings can be fatal if untreated. Although this is rare, it can still be frightening.
However, insect bites are a reality of life. It is impossible to eliminate the possibility of ever getting another bite or sting. Fortunately, just like with everything else related to sickness, disease, and injury, there’s a natural remedy for insect bites and stings.
Before we get to natural remedies, here are a few explanations why some insects bite people.
Why Insects Bite People
Believe it or not, insects pick up on your energy. If you are fearful, then you are asking to be bit. Your fear of the insect attracts them to you. If you try to wave it away, it increasing the likelihood of getting bitten or stung, simply because the insect feels it needs to protect itself. If you remain calm and still, you have a much lower chance of getting bit.
Just like with animals, insects are just as afraid of us as we are of them. But these creatures too can pick up on energetic vibrations that we can send out with our 6th chakra.
Like with animals, we can communicate with insects too, if we believe we can. By opening yourself up spiritually, you make it possible to communicate thoughts and feelings without using words. Animals and insects can recognize and respond to the emotions you are emitting.
Healing Naturally From Insect Bites
After you have been bitten or stung by an insect, run cold or warm water on the bite. Take a Q-tip or a wet cloth and apply tea tree oil to the wound/bite. Let the area naturally dry.
Never use isopropyl alcohol as it’s a petroleum-based product. Tea tree oil is always a better choice. Also, though doctors are known prescribe antibiotics for insect bites, it’s not recommended since the drugs can create side-effects worse than the bite or sting.
Apply bentonite clay (which should be wet and moist) to the wound and let it dry. Let the clay stay on for a few hours (applying retouches of the clay throughout the day as need be). If bentonite clay isn’t easily available, try an all-natural, chemical-free toothpaste.
The area of the insect bite may swell minutes or hours after the initial bite or sting and this okay and normal. Your body is simply reacting to the bite or sting and has begun the defense/healing process. Apply ice to help remove the ‘heat’ from the sting and to reduce redness around the affected area.
Drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of activated charcoal, which will help to draw out toxins. Continue to drink at least 3 liters of water a day to flush out other toxins that accumulate in the body.
Most importantly, think positively. You will be all right! Believe that!
If you are bitten or stung by a poisonous snake or a scorpion, you’ll need to seek allopathic medical assistance as this profession specializes in poison (posionopathy) and they collect poisonous snake venom for homeopathic reasons and purposes.
And if you have any questions or concerns about possible poisons, it is always appropriate to call a poison control hotline or your doctor. Although the bite is probably not too harmful (especially if you follow the natural healing recommendations), it is always better to be safe than sorry.
Be careful in areas that are known for having lots of insects. Don’t wear perfume or scented deodorant-they attract bugs of all kinds. Wear clothing with long sleeves, pants or long skirts to help protect your skin.
But after reading this article, you should feel prepared to tackle any situation, and empowered to live your life in the way you want – regardless of insect behaviors!
