Baking soda mixed with lavender paste
This one is a great remedy for both adults and children since the baking soda relieves irritation and the lavender helps soothe the affected skin, explains St. Ours. “It also helps children release some emotional upset that comes with a bad bug bite or bee sting.” Just mix 2 tablespoons baking soda and 25 drops lavender essential oil in a clean dish and apply to the affected site.
“Leave on for 20-30 minutes and remove with a cool, damp cloth,” instructs St. Ours. “If you notice lots of heat or swelling or an unusual rash appearing around the site, consult a medical professional.”
