Natural Remedy for Bug Bites

June 10, 2016
A natural way to stop mosquito bites from itching.

As summer is approaching I thought it might be a good idea to share what we use around here for bug bites. Thankfully I haven’t had the need to try this out on spider bites, but I have used it with mosquito bites and the small non-worrying, yet slightly red/itchy, “where did that bite come from?” type of bites. It’s super simple and I was kinda amazed at how well it worked the first time I tried it. In the past I would slather on anti-itch cream, just to keep itching, but now I layer on a good heaping pile of clay on the bite and it feels great. 

Ingredients

Steps

  • Mix to form a paste and apply to affected area, keep damp
  • You might need to reapply if the clay starts drying out and you’re still feeling itchy
  • Note: Do not mix or store the clay in metal, use wood glass or plastic
