Home Remedies to Repel Mosquitoes and Help If You’ve Been Bitten
Ugh! The mosquitoes are out in full force. Yes, we normally see mosquitoes around this time of year, but after all the rain we've had recently . . .OMG!
I usually don't have much trouble with mosquitoes, maybe it's blood type? I don't know, but I will say, this year? It's a different story. Those things are eating me alive!
It's always interesting to see what home remedies people say work for them. Here is a great video on not only some mosquito bite remedies but also ways to make some great and easy repellents. I love the baking soda paste remedy for the actual bite. Oh, and the lemon and eucalyptus oil spray to make a natural repellent seems great, too. I really gotta try that one.
One remedy I learned that works for any kind of bug bite and jellyfish sting is meat tenderizer. Just wet the skin and sprinkle the tenderizer on the bite area. I keep some cheap meat tenderizer in my travel bag.
