Natural remedies against insect bites

Hair, skin and nails

In Summer some insects, especially mosquitoes, can cause us different annoyances

Summer sun inevitably invites us to spend more time outdoors and in contact with nature.

Mosquitoes, flies, ticks and horseflies (so-called bloodsucking bugs), however, can become unwelcome companions of our barbecues in the park or during bike rides with friends. 

One of the "negative" sides of Summer are indeed insect bites, which can generate:

  • itch;
  • localised redness;
  • annoying swelling.

In individuals more prone to insect bites, these can even cause allergic reactions, sometimes even severe.

The reactions that we see on our skin are due to allergens, irritant compounds, or small doses of toxic venom that insects inject in us when they bite to feed on our blood.

In particular, the itching caused by mosquitoes, which torment us with their buzzing in the evening, can be so annoying as to make it difficult to sleep.

Researchers are still divided as to why some people attract, more than others, the attention of these insects (among possible causes are hormonal factors, sweating, food etc.).

What is certain is that we all want to know the right remedies against mosquitoes or at least those that mitigate the discomfort of their bites.

Preventing and soothing: the two remedies for insect bites

Prevention is the first, crucial step to keep our skin free from redness, swelling and itching caused by insect bites.

To keep annoying insects away you can make use of natural solutions based on essential oils that create an unfavourable environment for them.

The most used, often in synergy, essential oils in this type of products are:

  • lavender;
  • lemongrass;
  • eucalyptus and mint;
  • geranium;
  • lemon.

When it is too late for prevention, because you have already been bitten, you can act on irritation to try to limit the annoyance.

Except in the cases in which intense reactions occur (for which it is always good to seek the opinion of a doctor), the discomfort caused by insect bites fade away after a few days.

To mitigate small burns or localised redness you can apply, on the bite, an ice cube wrapped in a cotton handkerchief.

Alternatively, you can benefit from the application of:
