Step 1: What You Need
- a bowl or pestle and morter
- a spoon, any size is ok
- a box of baking soda
Step 2: The Mixing Part
1.take 1 heaping spoonfull of the powder and put it in your bowl or pestle and morter
Step 3: #2
2. mix a few drops of water into the powder but not too much! otherwise it will be too watery
also stir the two into a paste, it should look almost like cottage cheese
Step 4: Time to Use It
apply to the bug bite and the baking soda will help draw the toxins out of the bite and make it not itch while the mixture is on the skin. even afterwards if you need to remove the mixture the bite wont be as annoying or itchy. you can always put more of the mixture on if needed. [ im not totaly shure about the toxins part but that is what i have heard ] also freezing this mixture then putting it on the bite also helps
