10 Natural Home Remedies For Mosquito Bites

Mosquito bites are just horrendous. Even the name mosquito is enough to send shivers down many people spine. Just say the word to yourself now. Mosquito. It’s almost blood curdling, and their nickname, “Mozzies”, is even more menacing. It’s actually supposed to make them sound cuter, and make us go, “Aw, come here you little mozzies!”, but it just makes it sound like a pack of them are after you!

Unfortunately, during the hot season, mosquitos get around quite a fair bit and many of us are susceptible to getting bitten. These days, it doesn’t seem to matter where you live, because mosquitos have migrated far and wide, so that you no longer have to visit Africa to get a famed mozzie “love bite” on the nose. So if you can’t stop scratching because a mosquito has invaded your skin, let’s take a look at 10 awesome natural home remedies for mosquito bites that will soothe you in no time at all.

1. Try Aloe Vera

Aloe vera attacks a mosquito bite in two ways, which makes it super versatile and super potent. As well as drawing the sting out, the aloe-vera plant uses its well-known anti-inflammatory properties to sooth the itch. If you aren’t quite satisfied, you could also fridge your aloe vera gel because the cold will further reduce the itchiness.

2. Got A Mosquito Bite? Go Bananas!

Bananas are really good for our health, and many of us probably eat up to 7 a week for the vitamins they contain. But did you know that bananas are also a potent way of treating mosquito bites?

Not everyone is actually agreed on this, but studies have shown that running your mozzie bites with a banana peel can reduce itchiness and tenderness. At the same time, though, bananas have a strong smell and could actually attract more mosquitos.

So if your bites are driving you ‘bananas’ (sorry), just rub them with a banana peel

3. Ice

Another one of simple, yet effective, home remedies for mosquito bites is ice. Whenever you get bitten, be it by a mosquito or a wasp, one of the best things to do is shock it with some ice. Bites make you go round the bend with their itchiness, and sometimes mosquito bites can swell up quite a lot, but ice will actually numb the nerves that are responsible for all that itching. They will also reduce the pain, with the result being no more itching and no more pain. Yay!
