2. Relief From Stings

The astringent qualities of summer savory that make it great for skin care can also soothe insect bites. Astringents draw moisture from the site, reduce inflammation, and ease the burning and irritation caused by the bite. The herb's antibacterial properties can also speed up healing. If you're susceptible to mosquito bites, try growing a summer savory plant. When you're bitten, pick a leaf and rub it over the bite to get relief from the sting.
