Do It Yourself Insect Repellents

Homemade natural insect repellent.

Relieve itching:

Use a cotton ball to dab mosquito and other bug bites with white vinegar straight from the bottle.

Repel Mosquitoes:

Tie a sheet of dryer sheets through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

Mosquito bite relief:

Rub some onion juice on the bite. Smells, but works!

Stop insect bites from itching:

Dab the bite with a wet bar of soap and let dry to desensitize the skin.

Insect Repellent:

Make a solution of mint oil and rubbing alcohol, place in a spray bottle and spray yourself before any outings, the mint acts as a natural deterrent for most insects.

Bee sting relief:

Combine a little baking soda and water to form a paste...dab on bite.

How to Relieve a Bee/ Wasp Sting

If you get stung by one of these critters, crush up an aspirin, add a little water to make a paste then apply to the sting. My mother would make a paste of baking soda and water, it takes the sting out.
