Home Remedies: Bites and Stings

  1. Everyone knows it, you are enjoying a nice ice cream on a warm summer day. You get a nice sting from a wasp for free, since they also find that ice cream attractive. Fortunately, there are a number of remedies that can help with insect bites and stings. Of course, in some cases it is necessary to go to the doctor, for example if you do not know which insect you are dealing with. This must be known at all times.

Against bee stings

  1. If one has been stung by a bee, it is first of all important to remove the stinger. This can be done by grasping the stinger under the poison bag with tweezers and removing it. The small wound that now remains is best covered with a paste of baking soda and cold water. The irritation caused by the wound can be relieved by applying a mixture of parsley juice and honey to the wound. The juice from the parsley can be obtained by crushing the parsley.

Against wasp stings

  1. These itchy stitches can be relieved by adding apple cider vinegar or lemon. This will reduce irritation and itching. If you have swallowed a wasp, drink a glass of cold water with a teaspoon of salt in it as soon as possible. When the wasp has put you in your mouth, put an ice cube in your mouth and suck on it until the pain slowly disappears. A compress made of apple cider vinegar with some baking soda can also help when applied directly to the sting. Also a good compress is a cold, wet tea bag. The tannic acid in the tea counteracts the swelling of the sting. A paste of clove powder and cold water could also counteract this.

Against mosquito bites

  1. One of the most common insect stings are mosquitoes. If you have been bitten by a mosquito, you can rub a clove of garlic over the sting to prevent infection. One more tip, mosquitoes hate the smell of garlic, so eat the rest of the garlic raw. To reduce the itching around the sting, apply a mixture of honey and baking soda on top. Rubbing the inside of a lemon peel should do this too. To avoid being stung more often, you can sprinkle dried lavender on the windowsill, this scent also keeps mosquitoes away. Another mosquito repellent is a bunch of dried lavender, peppermint and catnip. Light this bunch and put it in a container. The scent of this bush masks your own scent and so the mosquitoes no longer know where to go. If you have been bitten by mosquitoes very often and are completely covered, it is important to break down all the toxins that have entered your body. To do this, drink an herbal tea made from dandelion, red clover or burdock. A horseradish tincture of half a cup of grated horseradish and 6 dl of medicinal alcohol is suitable for most punctures and stings, minor wounds and other superficial injuries. The horseradish must be soaked in the alcohol for 2-3 days and this mixture must be shaken twice a day and finally sifted into bottles.

Against stinging nettle
