Thank you for your comment Rita: “I am wondering if there is an herb especially good for mosquito bites. Mine really itch and I don’t want to scratch them”
Well good news, Rita! Calendula and Plantain are great for mosquito bites. Plantain is a drawing herb, which means it draws out the cause of the itching, and Calendula is a cooling and healing herb, so it soothes the bites and helps them heal.
Mosquito bite soother
5 Calendula flowers (fresh or dried)
5 plantain leaves (fresh or dried. See this post to learn how to identify Plantain)
Combine herbs in a glass jar, and pour 1 cup of hot water over them. Let steep for 30 minutes.
Pour the water and herbs into a blender, and blend until the herbs are ground up.
Let steep for another 30 minutes, or until cool.
Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer.
Pour the resulting clear herbal infusion into a ice cube tray and freeze.
To use: Hold one “herb cube” over the bite.
God didn’t leave us hanging with all the bugs around! He provided everything we need.
It’s still not to late to comment!
