A simple, natural, and inexpensive bug repellent and bite neutralizer. It’ll help mosquito bites not itch and gnat bites not get infected.
My first child has always loved to play outside. I remember when he was about 1 year old he was outside playing in the water table and I noticed he had some big bumps on the back of his neck near his hairline.
I kept a watchful eye on them and they continued to grow as the days dragged on. I took him to the doctor and it turns out it was just some nasty gnat bites. I never knew gnat bites could look that bad!!
After getting some topical cream from the doctor, I started looking up ways to prevent this from happening again. I knew keeping my little guy inside wouldn’t work so I had to figure something else out.
- Empty Rollerball (you’ll want multiple, believe me)
- Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’
Fill the rollerballs with Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’ and apply directly to bug bites. This will help mosquito bites not itch and gnat bites not get infected.
If you, or your child, are prone to reactions to bug bites, you could roll the Apple Cider Vinegar on them before going outside. For my son, we mainly focus on the nape of his neck where the gnats love to bite him. For me, I focus around my ankles where mosquitoes like to bite me.
Multiple Rollerballs Recommended
I started out with just one rollerball full of the Apple Cider Vinegar that I would move from my purse, to the diaper bag, to the house, and back again. It was a hassle. Now I see that Amazon has a pack of 12 rollerballs for what I would have paid for just 4 of them at the local co-op! It’s a great deal!
