More amazing oils at work

Towards the end of my hike last night at Tolmie State Park, I brushed up against a stinging nettle bush and almost immediately my arm looked like this. By the time I got home and the welts were huge and felt like they were on fire. I put Melaleuca and Lavender oils on it, went to bed and in the morning they were all gone! There was a tingling sensation in my wrist area--not by where the welts were--like the irritants had traveled down the bloodstream to that point. The more I moved it around, the more the sensation lessened, like when your hand/foot "falls asleep" and you have to move it to get the blood circulating again. Rashes from stinging nettle can last up to 24 hours, so I feel blessed to have it gone so quickly.
