Magical Itchy Bite Remedy – made with only 3 ingredients

Magical Itchy Bite Remedy

My kids are very sensitive to mozzies, bugs, sand flies anything you can think of! I say they have perfect blood ūüėČ

When I saw this (very similar) idea over at I Can Teach My Child¬†I thought, surely “that really seems genius, but I doubt it works…calm down Jenni, don’t be so judgemental – give it a try and you never know”.

Well I did and it actually does work! BOOM! I altered the recipe slightly but it is a fantastic clean alternative to some yucky store bought mozzie bite repellents packed with chemicals!

Ok, to make your own you will need:

Magical Itchy Bite Remedy Ingredients

1/2 cup baking soda

2tsp tea tree oil

6tbs water

The juice of 1/2 a lemon


Step 1

Mix baking soda and water until it is the preferred consistency.  I used 5 tablespoons of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of water.

Step 2

Add in the 2tsp of tea tree oil and the juice of 1/2 a lemon & mix well

Step 3

Rub a small amount onto the itchy bite for soothing relief

Step 4

Store in an air tight container…it will last quite a number of weeks if stored in the fridge too – the lemon helps to keep the ingredients¬†fresh.
