Bee Sting Cure

Just in case you get stung this summer, here is a great home remedy.

1 teaspoon of chopped onions

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar

I smushed the above three ingredients in a bowl and wrapped the resulting mess in a piece of cotton cloth and applied that to the bite with just a little pressure.

Within fifteen minutes the itching and pain had dissipated.

Nice, I stumbled upon a remedy myself over the summer.

Don't underestimate this discovery, it's like a secret weapon that big companies don't want you to know about so you'll keep spending money on the so-called poison ivy treatments.

All you need is a $1.99 bottle of hydrogen peroxide (3%) and some cotton balls. This is where it gets fun. You actually get to itch your poison ivy. In fact, itch as much as you can until the infected area is completely exposed, then apply the hydrogen peroxide to the affected area. This will sting a bit, but in seconds the oils inside your skin will begin to bubble slightly into a white hardened foam. The sting will last a few minutes, but I kid you not, your itch will dissapate completely.

I applied the hydrogen peroxide 4 or 5 times a day. For the first application, I used my fingers to scratch open the poison ivy areas then applied the peroxide. For all subsquent apps, I scrubbed my wounds intensely with cotton balls that were already soaked in hydrogen peroxide.

I'm telling you, my poison ivy was almost completely healed in like 3 days all 3 times I had it. Don't be scared...DO IT!
