Apply a copper penny directly over any sting or bug bite. The copper sulfate neutralizes the sting almost instantly. Tape the penny on with any tape and leave in place for at least one hour.

The day we moved in here, March first, my ex-roommate brought bed bugs from where he lived before. I started getting bitten so many times and my legs are swollen so bad I can’t even get my shoes on and I am going to the store. I am so mad about all this.

I got stung by a bee by stepping on it. It hurt badly immediately, and I could not find a stinger. I applied doTERRA oils, lavender and peppermint. I experienced relief almost immediately!
