Bee Stings/Insect Bites

  • Aromatherapy: tea tree, basil, bergamot, lavender, thyme, ylang-ylang

  • Add enough water to baking soda or meat tenderizer to make a paste and apply it to the sting

  • Cover affected area with a small amount of mashed fresh papaya

  • Herbs: apply fresh aloe vera sap directly to the bite; if bite becomes infected, bathe with marigold or echinacea tea; apply a fresh slice of onion to both bee and wasp stings; a mixture of honey and crushed garlic makes a soothing ointment

  • Homeopathy: Apis, 1 tablet every 30 minutes, maximum 6 doses for burning and swelling
