It’s that time of year again when all sorts of natures little pests decide to dine on your blood, bite a hole in your skin, or leave an itchy red rash behind. Mosquitoes, horse flies, gnats, no-see-ums, black flies, ticks, chiggers, wasps, hornets, poison ivy, poison oak, and the list goes on… It’s a wonder anybody goes outside at all. There are numerous itch relief products at the local Nyack drug store such as cortisone, Benadryl, and calamine. Here is a list of natural remedies that many of us have around the house. Hopefully one will work for you.

Apple cider vinegar

Banana Peel

Oat Meal

Peppermint leaves

Aloe Vera

Meat Tenderizer-not something in my house, but supposed to work great if applied immediately to a bee bite

Montmorillonite Clay- maybe not so common, but good to know if you make potteryImage title
