YIKES!! Besides a BBQ feast and way too much fun…. Labor Day also brought me the gifts of several bites…. Mosquito bites that is! What’s a bitten itchy girl to do?? Salt it up!! By simply dampening a couple of pinches of salt in my hand with a couple of drops of water I have made a salt paste. I rubbed that salt paste for 20 seconds on each of my bites…. Within 40 seconds all pain, itching and redness has disappeared! The salt helped break down the inflammatory proteins my body produced in response to the bites…. plus it destroyed the germs that were trying to sneak in through my broken skin.

From YIKES to YAY in 40 seconds!!
