Natural Mosquito Bites Treatment
Art of the Home Tip for a Homemade Mosquito Bites Treatment
To sooth mosquito bites and reduce itching:
- Get a few leaves of fresh parsley: flat-leaf parsley (persil plat) or curly-leaf parsley (persil frisé). Mince the parsley and apply on the mosquito bite by rubbing gently on the bite area. If you don’t have time to mince it, you can simply crush the parsley with your fingers. This will also extract the essential oil from the parsley leaves which contributes to the effectiveness of this mosquito bites treatment.
- During the summer, consider filling up a short glass with water and a small bouquet of parsley. Leave it in your kitchen or patio area and it will be ready in case of mosquito bites.
- Parsley on the go: going to a picnic? Bring some parlsey branches with you to decorate your summer salads and for a mosquito bites treatment if needed.
