Sometimes, despite our best intentions, the little buzzers manage to sneak a snack–on us! The next time you or your little ones get an itchy bug bite, try these quick and simple remedies. They are all kid-friendly and very effective, as well as being completely safe and natural.
My favorite uses an ingredient you probably have sitting in a bowl on your kitchen countertop.
Use banana peel to take the itch out of mosquito bites. Just rub the pulpy inside surface of the peel on the bite.
- Rub the bite with Soap.
- Apply an ice pack to the bite.
- Mix baking soda with enough water to make a paste and apply to the bite.
- Apply Lavender and Tea Tree oils with a swab.
- Rub a piece of freshly-cut onion on the bite.
- A dab of toothpaste is soothing, too.
