Ten is the number of mosquito bites I currently have all over my body, mostly on my legs, a few on my feet and one on my neck.
On a scale of one to ten, the level of itchiness and discomfort is currently ten. Without fail, I keep waking up at 4:00 am because my ankles are crazy itchy. Super annoying because I haven't had a good nights sleep in two nights.
One a scale of one to ten, the difficulty to shave my legs without nicking every single bite, is without a doubt ten. Thankfully, I walked away from last night's shower without any nicks. phew!
The number of natural remedies I found to help these super annoying, itchy bites, eleven. I have yet to try any of them, but according to an article I found from the Global Healing Center website, the following are all effective and natural remedies for relieving and treating mosquito bites.
- Organic apple cider vinegar
- Aloe vera gel, from an aloe plant
- A dry bar of soap
- Baking soda and water
- Slice of onion
- Raw honey
- Lime and/or lemon juice
- Essential oils
- Salt paste
- Raw garlic
To read the full article and how to create/apply the natural remedies, you can hop over to the Global Healing Center website, here. Knowing that we have a lot of baking soda in the house, I think that I will give that "remedy" a shot first! Fingers crossed it's successful.
Do you have any natural remedies to help with mosquito bites? I would LOVE to hear about them!!
