I know you’re probably thinking I’m exaggerating, but where I may get a bite or two, he’s covered in bites. He wants to kill the itch quickly, who doesn’t, so we need a reliable home remedy on hand.

Since we don’t use chemical remedies, we’ve come to depend on quite a few home remedies to treat bug bites and stings. It’s interesting to me how some home remedies work better than others on different people. I’m not sure if it’s related to different skin types, the oiliness of the skin, or exactly what makes the difference but it’s a fact.
