If you do get bit by a mosquito, try rubbing witch hazel on your bite to relieve swelling and itching. To improve on this simple remedy, I've taken a page from Pliny the Elder, who swears that basil takes the itch out of bug bites and stings. Just add fresh chopped basil to 2 oz. of witch hazel, and let steep in an air-tight, glass container. After a week or so, strain off the basil, and you will have a cheap and effective mosquito bite remedy. Adding basil does seem to enhance the itch-relieving properties.
