Where there is warm weather, there are mosquitoes.
Even with proper protection, you usually wind up with a few bites.
Those few can be a pain, and scratching your bites is even worse, as that can lead to infection.
This is a simple after-bite spray you can use to help relieve itching and neutralize bites.
What You’ll Need:
1 cup Distilled Water
1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp. Baking Soda
5 Drops Tea Tree Oil
Mix water & ACV together, add baking soda and a few drops of tea tree oil.
Mix thoroughly and if you have multiple bites pour mixture into a small spray bottle and spray affected areas.
For smaller, individual bites use a cotton swab and dip into the mixture and carefully swab the bites.
The tea tree oil contain antiseptic properties that work great for treating skin irritants.
The apple cider vinegar and baking soda help to sooth the bite and relieve itching.
