Baking soda mixed with lavender paste

This one is a great remedy for both adults and children since the baking soda relieves irritation and the lavender helps soothe the affected skin, explains St. Ours. “It also helps children release some emotional upset that comes with a bad bug bite or bee sting.” Just mix 2 tablespoons baking soda and 25 drops lavender essential oil in a clean dish and apply to the affected site.

“Leave on for 20-30 minutes and remove with a cool, damp cloth,” instructs St. Ours. “If you notice lots of heat or swelling or an unusual rash appearing around the site, consult a medical professional.”

  1. I one time got a yellow jacket down my back inside my clothes. It stung me 7 times before I could get it out. My neighbor saw me and came out with a tube of toothpaste. She said she read once where a couple of construction workers disturbed a nest of yellow jackets and were repeated stung. All they had was toothpaste so they used it and it worked. She put it on my stings and the pain vanished almost immediately. Some years later I was working an emergency room when the police brought in a homeless woman because she had toothpaste smeared all over her face. The doctor was ready to agree just on that but I told him about the incident I’d had so he asked her why. She had windburn on her face (which we could see) and that was all she had to help the pain. I have also used baking soda paste on mosquito bites and my mom used oatmeal or baking soda paste when I had chicken pox. Worked great for both problems.
