Don’t leap into the medicine cabinet before you’ve tried the methods that almost every generation before us has relied on….natural remedies. Here are some easy examples:


If you only have time to spot treat, mix a tiny amount of bentonite clay with water or apple cider vinegar and cover the spot. Let the clay dry (a few minutes), and rinse off gently. This can take a flaming red zit down to almost nothing, almost instantly. (Also said to work for calming skin itching from eczema, psoriasis etc.)

I love this bentonite clay from Amazon.

Insect Bites

Relieve the itch from bug bites with an onion (!!). The sulfur in onions neutralizes the chemicals that cause the itch. Simply slice a yellow onion in half and rub one of the cut sides on the bite. The itching should stop immediately.

Itchy Scalp/Dandruff

Use raw apple cider vinegar to reduce or eliminate the problem. To clear up dandruff you need to counter the cause of the problem: your scalp’s acidic pH level. To restore your scalp’s natural alkaline pH level, first wash and condition your hair. Then, while still in the shower or bath, pour a cup of apple cider vinegar on your head, let sit, then rinse with water.
