      Homemade anti itch (calamine) lotion
      Ingredients
      1 tablespoon sea salt
      1 tablespoon baking soda
      1 tablespoon bentonite clay (do not use any metal when using bentonite clay, as this will react with the clay making it less effective.)
      witch hazel to form a paste – can also use water instead of witch hazel
      Optional essential oils
      5 drops lavender essential oil (antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic)
      5 drops peppermint essential oil (helps reduce itchiness and inflammation)
      5 drops chamomile essential oil (natural antihistamine and helps reduce inflammation)

      Directions
      Combine all of the dry ingredients in a small bowl.
      Slowly add in the witch hazel or water until a smooth and creamy paste forms, then add in the essential oils if you are using them.
      Apply to poison ivy, itchy bug bites, chicken pox, and rashes. Keep refrigerated.
