How To Use Turmeric To Treat Post-Gardening Bug Bites
When confronted with an itchy bug bite, blend 2 teaspoons of fresh turmeric powder with water until a smooth paste forms. This consistency allows for easy and even application.
Gently smear the paste onto the inflamed bite area, ensuring it's well-covered. Let this sit for about 10 minutes so that the turmeric can penetrate the skin and provide relief.
Wash off the paste using lukewarm water, and hopefully, your bug bite will be less inflamed and less irritated.
Since turmeric can stain, protect your clothing, and be prepared for a temporary skin tint. For sensitive skin, do a patch test to ensure you don't have an adverse reaction.
