I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of even ONE thing that is pleasant about having a mosquito bite.
Therefore, if there is a way to keep these buzzing critters away… bring it on!

Already been bitten? Try these 3 natural remedies to soothe mosquito bites (because you know itching makes it SO MUCH worse!):
1. Hold a refrigerated, dampened green tea bag on the bite. The cold helps soothe the itch and specific elements in the tea help with inflammation.
2. Place a dab of honey on the bite. Honey has many antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Stay indoors when using this treatment as the honey can attract mosquitoes and be sure to wash it off before heading out.
3. Make a baking soda paste using 1 tablespoon with enough water to form a paste. Apply to bite for 10 minutes and then wash off.
