To cool the itch of summer insect bites and scratches, keep a tube or jar of aloe vera gel in your refrigerator. Make sure it’s on a low shelf so it is easy to grab for everyone in the family. One little icy dab on mosquito bites makes the itch disappear, and the soothing compounds in aloe vera help heal the skin. My grandkids swear by it!
