Aha, does it stop the itching or do they heal faster?

It's good for both. 

With mosquito bites you want to put it on within the first 15 minutes for best results. It helps regardless, but it's most effective that way.

Ticks you want to remove within 24 hours anyway to prevent tickborne lyme disease and I never had a tick longer than that. But tea tree oil helps with the itching and redness.

I always use it undiluted. I'm not sure if that's recommended on the bottle, but it works for meGlad

#6 If you live in Sweden you can buy it here. They also come in 10 ml bottles if you want to try it out.

It lasts a long time and like I said, I use it straight without problem. But if you have very sensitive skin you may want to be a little more careful. I don't know how well it works undiluted for insect bites.

Good also for sore throats, kills virus, fungus and bacteria. A few drops in a little bit of water and gargleGlad (do not swallow)

What I meat to say in #7 was that I don't know how well it works diluted, I know it works great undiluted. Just wanted to correct that mistake.

#8 My pleasure Glad

#9 It has a sort of menthol/eucalyptus smell and taste, it's not at all unpleasant. It also acts like a numbing agent, which explains the almost immediate relief from itching and soreness.
