    Home Remedies - Itching

    Soaking for 15 minutes in a bath in which potato flour is dissolved will help reduce itching.

    Drink half a glass of water in which half a teaspoon of turmeric powder has been dissolved to get relief from itching.

    Make a paste of fresh basil leaves, olive oil, garlic cloves, salt and pepper and smear on the itch.

    Smear almond, peppermint or nettle oil on the rash.


    Scrub the affected area lightly with a pumice stone. Then wash with soap, apply rubbing alcohol, and dab a thick layer of Vaseline over it. This will provide relief from itching.

    Fresh Chickweed poultice is good for itching. This can be made by soaking 2 large handfuls in water. When the plants soften, cool them and apply directly on the skin.

    For widespread or hard-to-reach itches, soak in a baking soda bath. Add 1-cup baking soda to a tub of warm water. Soak for 30 to 60 minutes and air dry. Localized itches can be treated with a baking soda paste. Mix 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water. Apply to the itch, but do not use if the skin is broken.

    Add 1 to 2 cups finely ground oatmeal to a warm bath and soak in it to ease your itches.

    Squeeze undiluted lemon juice on itchy skin and allow to dry.

    Place 0.5 ounce dried basil or thyme leaves in a 1-pint jar of boiling water and then cover it to prevent the eugenol from evaporating. Allow it to cool and then apply the solution to the itching area as often as necessary. Instead of 0.5 ounce of basil or thyme, 1 ounce of dried mint leaves can also be used.

    Application of aloe vera gel to the affected area helps to reduce itching.
