Mosquitoes are still active in some parts of the country. Luckily cooler temperatures are arriving, which means mosquitoes won’t be a problem soon. Mosquito bites would be much less annoying if they didn’t ITCH. So, here’s the fix: Rub coconut oil on them! Natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola says coconut oil is anti-inflammatory and will reduce swelling and itching faster than other skin treatments. Plus, coconut oil is anti-microbial, so it kills the germs that could cause an infection and helps bites heal quicker.
Also, coconut oil is a super lubricant that helps skin stay hydrated. So, you’re more likely to feel soothing relief from bug bites – rather than a constant urge to scratch!
