Natural Relief for Bug Bites

We were deep in the Rockies this weekend and I can report that the mosquito population up there is thriving. Luckily we knew about using baking soda to relieve bug bites.aluminum-free baking soda

While our natural bug repellent worked amazingly well, each of us came away with a bite or two. Our mountain host mixed together a paste of baking soda and water to apply to the itchy bites. As the paste dried, the itchiness receded. Aaahhhhh…. relief!

If you don’t have baking soda around there are a couple other commonly found items that can be applied to help dry up and relieve the discomfort of bug bites:

1. mud

2. toothpaste (not gel)

3. Pepto Bismol
