Piss on it for bee or insect bites.

The ammonia in urine dissolves the ensimes in the insect bite. This renders it neutral..when out in the woods unprepared, reach for your built in medicine storage of sterilized medication, yes urine.

Household Bleach

Put bleach on a sting of any kind. The pain stops immediately. It always works on bee stings; however,by Son was bitten by a scorpion and I used bleach and the pain stopped immediately. He was even able to put on a glove and practice baseball within the hour.

The Bee

I once heard that if you get stung by a bee that dislodges it stinger in your skin, you can tract that same bee and rub it on the optimal site, it will relieve the pain. Now I'm not running off to bee farms to try it but it was just something I heard...

One day I was taking the trash out to the curb and stepped on a bee. I ran to the bathroom to grab the "AfterBite" hoping it would help. Well the "AfterBite" was empty! I looked on the side and saw the only ingredient was "ammonia"

So I ran to the basement and grabbed my bottle of ammonia, opened it, put some on my finger and rubbed it on my foot where I was stung.

I continued rubbing some on it every 5 min. for about a half hour. After an hour it was like I never got stung at all!
My foot never swelled up!

All I could think of was all the baking soda my mom wasted on us kids when we were little, which never worked!

So always make sure you have a small bottle of ammonia in your emergency supplies.

Apple Cidar Vinegar

Best to use Organic Raw if you can. I was stung and in pain, knowing the purifying abilities of apple cidar vinegar, I tried it. Poured it on the sting site and then wrapped a towel soaked in it around the area. So soothing, and the swelling decrease was almost immediate. I was quite impressed. Apply the vinegar as soon as possible on the bite to draw out any poison and to prevent swelling. Thyme and rosemary infused in the vinegar are especially effective.

Onion Skin

Cut an onion and peel away a good piece of the thin membrane between layers. Place on the wound and leave there as long as necessary. Pain stops within seconds and there will be no swelling or trace of having been stung afterwards.
