Applying a store bought bug spray or a homemade product is a great way to prevent attacks from pests like mosquitoes. However, a standard bug spray does little to protect against ants and similar pests. Bites from ants will often be itchy, but a great way to lessen the effects will be to apply a homemade bug bite balm.
The best thing about a homemade bug bite balm is it can also be used to treat cuts and scrapes that typically occur to young kids. This is simple to do once you have the ingredients that are needed. You only need a little heat from your oven to blend the ingredients together.
Your homemade bug bite balm can be packed into plastic tubes or in a glass jar. Plastic tubes are better if you need something that is easily portable. You simply need to apply a little bit of your balm when a bug bite occurs.
