Bee Stings & Bug Bites Are No Fun! 3 Quick Remedies From Your Pantry!


Instead of running to the medicine cabinet, try your hand at “food alchemy” by using your pantry. Here’s a starter’s list to quickly help a hurtful bite or sting.

Tea Bags: Hey, parents, after hearing about the bug bite, brew yourself a cup! The toxins in the leaves will soothe and draw out the itch.
Mustard: It’s a powerful antioxidant applied as a poultice. Mix mustard powder with enough water to make a paste. Place on the sting and hold it there 15 minutes. Repeat.
Baking Soda: Hands down the best! Bee venom contains formic acid, which is acidic in nature. Baking soda is alkaline, so it neutralizes the formic acid and reduces pain. Make a paste with water and apply until dry. Repeat until boo-boo is better!
Good luck!
