One of my passions is gardening and if I'm not covered up from head to toe, you can be sure I'll have plenty of mosquito bites on me. They still manage to bite any exposed areas of my skin!  So, I'll grab a fresh basil leaf from my herb garden to rub over the bitten area and it really works!  If you don't grow your own basil, you can purchase fresh basil at any local grocery store.

Or, you can use some of these other natural remedies for mosquito bites:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Basil
  • Aloe Vera
  • Lavender oil
  • Rubbing alcohol/Hand Sanitizer
  • Milk and water
  • Listerine
  • Aspirin paste
  • Peppermint toothpaste
