Remedies for Insect Bites

We always hear that Aloe Vera can sooth our skin if we are bitten by insects. There are of course, way to repel insects without using any insect repellents. Well, I came thru some articles of the Remedies for Insect Bites. I hope this will really help us.

A few tricks for treating insect bites

You don’t have to sit back and just passively put up with insects, especially those that like to bite (mosquitoes, wasps etc.). Eat asparagus and your sweat will develop an odor that repels insects. Or apply lemon oil to your skin.

If you are bitten, there are natural substances to soothe the irritation. Aloe vera has extraordinary powers of soothing skin disorders. It is available in forms for both internal and external application in most health and beauty stores.


If you have one of these amazing plants growing at home, cut the tip off one of the leaves (the leaf will heal itself). Apply the pulp and juice to the itching or swollen area.

Lightly boiled cabbage or leek makes an excellent analgesic poultice. Of course, if you are hiking in the woods, you might have a little trouble finding cabbage! Plantain also works well. Cut it and rub it to get to the juice then apply it to the affected area.

There's no accuracy on how this will works. It's just something to guide or help you to cure. Hope you enjoy applying this.
