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. 

  1. Organic apple cider vinegar
  2. Aloe vera gel, from an aloe plant
  3. A dry bar of soap
  4. Baking soda and water
  5. Slice of onion
  6. Toothpaste
  7. Raw honey
  8. Lime and/or lemon juice
  9. Essential oils
  10. Salt paste
  11. 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!!
