Stop the itch in its tracks by mixing a few simple ingredients.

Step 1: Use antihistamines
Crush several antihistamine tablets and add a few drops of water to make a paste. Spread the paste on the itchy area. Antihistamines contain diphenhydramine, which numbs skin.

Step 2: Use oatmeal
Mix the hot water with a 1½-ounce packet of instant oatmeal. Let it cool and spread it on the itch. Oatmeal has anti-itch properties and is effective for large areas, such as those affected by chicken pox, poison oak and poison ivy.

Step 3: Mix baking soda and water
Mix three parts baking soda with one part water and apply the resulting paste to the itchy area. The paste will harden into a crust and soothe irritated skin.

Tip
You can also make a solution of 4 tablespoons baking soda dissolved in a quart of water and apply it with a washcloth.

Step 4: Use aloe vera
Snap off an aloe vera leaf, split it down the middle, and squeeze the gel onto the itch.

Step 5: Use basil
Make a tea with ½ ounce dried basil and 1 pint of water. Cover the tea until it cools and then apply it to irritated skin with a washcloth. Basil contains a natural anesthetic called eugenol.

Tip
You can substitute cloves for basil. Cloves are also high in eugenol.

Step 6: Mix solution
Mix a solution of 2 ounces witch hazel, 2 ounces aloe vera gel, and 15 drops tea tree oil. Put it in a spray bottle and spray your itch.

Did You Know?
Depending on the species, most mosquitoes have a very short life span, from one week to a month.

Another good way is put clear nail polish on it. It takes away the itch and makes the redness go away.

Brilliant thank you. As anyone who suffers from eczema will know it is useless to go to the doctor as they take you straight to pharma creams which DO NOT WORK and cost a fortune. Great video as most of these things are in the kitchen anyway. You can buy aloe vera gel if you do not live where they grow. Another good one is raw potato if you travel and get bitten by mosquitos. Or your own spit works for about half an hour while you are waiting to get to a shop! Ice cubes work for a while but after that use a gentle moisturizer like aloe gel as it will dry out skin. The cold message confuses the brain as cold travels the same pathway as itch message and the itch stops!

now who the hell is going to buy all of these ingredients when you could just go to the store and buy the itch cream for cheaper?
