Natural After Bite Recipe That Works

Insect Bite Roll On Remedy

This insect bite roll-on is great to have on hand when you least expect that you’ll get attacked by mosquitoes, flies, or other annoying pests. If you’ve ever been caught outside at dusk without bug spray you may also know the frustration of trying to enjoy time with friends while getting eaten alive by mosquitoes or swarmed by flies. This handy little roll-on bottle is an easy way to make sure that you always have a bite relief on hand in your purse, pocket, or bag.all-natural mosquito bite roll on recipe

To quickly relieve mosquito bites apply the roll on as soon as you see the mosquito on you or feel the bite starting to itch. Don’t scratch! Roll on a little of this bug bite relief right onto the bite and allow it to dry.  Again, don’t scratch! The more you scratch the more inflamed it will be. If you can restrain yourself while the bug bite remedy works, you should feel better in about 15 minutes.

The other way I use this bug bite roll on is when I’m outdoors on the grass and those annoying little flies are all over me. Maybe this just happens to me, and if so you are lucky because it is the worst! The flies don’t bite but what feels like hundreds land my skin and just sit there. They always seem to land on me 10 to 20 at once (no exaggeration this time). My bug spray recipe is very effective at keeping them off, but if I happen to be out somewhere and only have my roll on, it works just as well. I apply the roll-on in a zigzag pattern on my arms and legs and the flies fly away for good!make this all natural bug after bite remedy at home - it works!

    Is there something I could substitute for the lavender oil? I’m allergic so I can’t use it.

      Lemon balm if you can find it as an essential oil. Chamomile is also calming.

    How much Witch Hazel?

    An itch is irritating, but typically not worth going to the drug store for. Having itch spray (use on with active ingredient diphenhydramine) on hand is one of those little things that makes life so much easier. Also, spray-on burn gel in the kitchen and your beach kit.

    I was eaten alive while abroad recently and could have done with this! I clicked over expecting a long and complicated recipe. I can’t believe how easy this is. Thanks for the tutorial!

    I do not have witch hazel, can I use alcohol (vodka) instead?

      Hi Sylvia, I haven’t used alcohol myself but I can see that it is used in botanical cologne recipes. Why not get some witch hazel, though? It is a wonderfully healing product for skin and helps with inflammation, one of the key troubles with a bug bite.

    I like the bug spray link but this is even better. I get bit within seconds so I really like after bite treatment ideas.
