I guess my favorites that weren't already mentioned are using ammonia for mosquito bites (it works fabulously!), witchhazel for inflammation, bruises, cleaning the face...), ACV for all kinds of things (soaking pesticides off store-bought berries and veggies, burns, and in chickens/pets' water), cornstarch for heat rash and diaper rash, and the inside lining of eggshells for pulling poison out of spider bites and other inflamed sores...
MMD is spot on with ammonia. It worked wonder on my chigger bites. I've also used it on tick bites with great success. It seems to pull out the puss and dry the bite out. I finish off with triple antibiotic ointment to finish healing so the bit doesn't get infected.
