My child is one of those people who is really attractive to mosquitoes, and she tends to obsess and itch them open — gross. This has prompted much well-meaning folk advice about itches, like this:
So, in text form:
- inside of banana peel
- paste of baking soda
- apple cider vinegar
- lavender essential oil
- tea tree oil
- lemon slice
- slice of onion (this one often recommended as particularly effective)
And, not in the picture, but basil has also been suggested.
Do these remedies relieve the itching of mosquito bites?
(I found a number of questions here about natural mosquito repellents — let's assume it's too late for that.)
