I don't know about you, but the mosquitoes just LOVE our family, especially RD and Arianna. (I tell them it's because they're so "sweet".) Sometimes I wonder if mosquitoes prefer certain blood types. Hmmm... Anyway, for those of you that are suffering this summer with those pesky itchy bites, try this simple home remedy: Baking Soda Paste.
Pour out a bit of baking soda into a bowl and add enough water to make a paste. Rub a bit of the paste on the bug bite. Voila! Works like a charm. Takes the itch right out!
(Also works wonders on bee stings.)
Another wonderful thing to have around the house for bug bites is Watkins Salve. For minor cuts, scrapes, burns, and skin irritations. Looooove it!
