Our ten year old son recently had a huge area on his calf that was red and swollen. We'd been out in the garden so we assume he was bitten by something like an insect or spider. He said it was itching so I told him to put lavender on it but he couldn't find it so I suggested peppermint and it worked. The itching was relieved.
