    Few things are more annoying than the itching and scratching that accompanies a fat, juicy mosquito bite. When a mosquito bites us, we itch due to the residual saliva left behind from the insect’s feasting on our blood! Fortunately, just as Mother Nature has honored us with the presence of these buzzing nuisances, she has provided us with some great natural remedies for treating mosquito bites when we do get bit. Here are some of most-effective natural ways for relieving and treating painful and itchy mosquito bites.

    1. Vinegar:



    When you first notice the itchy bite, try applying a small amount of vinegar directly to the bump. If you have many bites, you may want to take a very hot bath in a tub filled with water and 2 1/2 cups of vinegar.Recommend using organic apple cider vinegar.

    2. Aloe:




    Aloe vera is another excellent remedy for mosquito bites, as well as many other conditions. Not only will it help ease the itching and swelling from the bit, but it will also aid in healing the wound. You can use fresh gel directly from an aloe plant or organic aloe juice. They both work well at providing relief.

    5. Onion:




    Other than making you produce tears, a fresh slice of onion can also help take the sting out of a bite. Simply place a fresh slice on the affected area for several minutes until the itching subsides. Be sure to wash the area throughly afterwards.

    8. Lime and/or Lemons:




    Apply a small amount of lime juice directly to the bites. Lemon juice also works well.This also helps in keeping the wound from becoming infected from the grit and grime of fingernails.
