Homemade Herbal Plantain Bug Bite Salve

With summer in full swing, if you live anywhere near woods or a body of water, you’re probably experiencing bug bites on a daily basis. And, unfortunately, no matter what you use, whether bug spray, bug repellent candles, or protective coverings, bugs have a way of sneaking past all your defenses.

There are several medicines on the market that claim to prevent bug bits. There are even more that offer relief from bug bites and the itchy, red welts that they cause. However, these ointments and sprays tend to be both expensive and also full of chemicals. If you’re looking for a more natural solution, this herbal bug bite salve is perfect for you.

Homemade Herbal Plantain Bug Bite Salve

All you need for this salve is:

– Broad Leaved Plantain (look in your yard, you probably having it growing and have no clue it is even there)

– Baking Soda

– Water

It’s just that simple!

When you’ve been bitten, you can create a poultice by cutting up the Broad Leaved Plantain, mixing it with a few teaspoons of baking soda, and enough water to make it mix together. Then, apply the salve to the area you’ve been bitten. Soon, you’ll feel the relief this all-natural salve can bring you.

The best part about this herbal bug bite salve is that it can be made on the go, too. If you’re out hiking or working and you’re bitten, you can get the same affects by chewing on a few of the leaves and applying it to the bite. While the baking soda mixture stays on the bite better, this on the go salve works just as well.
