Clean and Clear Astringent - pink

July 17, 2009
Every time I get a bee, wasp, etc. sting I rub clean and clear facial astringent on it. The pink stuff. It will dry your skin, but it also pulls the venom out and on most; depending on the severity of the sting the symptoms usually disappear within 12 hours. It works on a sting the same way it does on dirty pores and scratches that are beginning to redden. It sucks all the bad stuff out. It hasn't failed me yet.

Toothpick

May 18, 2009
My grandmother had always told me of quick cures for things let it be a headaches, hiccups, or many other things. One time she had told me about an instant pain relief for a bee sting which was to put a toothpick behind an ear left or right did not matter and that the pain would be gone as soon as you let go.

Well needless to say I did not believe her because the idea sounds crazy. But the day I received my first bee sting I had remembered what my grandmother had said and decided to try it. And to my surprise it had worked, the pain had miraculously disappeared. So I did not want this remedy to be lost forever so I am sharing it with all of you. Try it and it will work. You won't lose anything in trying.

Tobacco

May 09, 2009
As soon as you get stung take a cigarette break it in half and apply the tobacco directly to the sting. I have used this several times and it helps draw the poison out that the stinger starts to release. It should only take a minute or two.

PEANUT BUTTER is the Trick.........

March 23, 2009
**Peanut Butter** is the best that I've learned of and I have used it since I was a kid. Now my kids use it. They learned;)My boys were hesitant at first but glad for relief! And laughed about it after. If you ask them what to do for a bee sting, they will quickly suggest Peanut Butter!!

Plantain (not the banana--the herb)

March 13, 2009
Almost instantaneous relief comes from a little "weed" that grows in most yards. Google for pics, if you don't know it. It's a smallish green monocotyledon with lobed green leaves and a brownish cone flower (seasonally). Just pic a leaf or two, chew it in your mouth for a couple seconds to break the cellular membranes, stick it on your sting (try to get the stinger out first it you can), and you'll be all good in ten minutes flat. Note: children are quite impressed by this.
