Wasp sting and the best pain reliever

This morning we had spent a lot of time replanting some Thai Basil, regular basil, hot pepper  and green pepper plants. Even though it was still early 9:30 AM, the temperature was rising but I was glad to get them replanted. After having accomplished the tasks, I decided to sit on the swing and put my feet up on the hassock. All of a sudden I felt this sting hit the back of my leg and then as I tried to walk in the house to get relief I felt another sting on the inside of my thigh. Once in the house I went to look at the sting on my thigh and out came a wasp. Needless to say I was in a lot of pain and looking for anything that would help relieve the pain. My daughter Ruth went on the mission of finding out what natural things we could use.

On the computer she did a search for bee/wasp stings and came across some wonderful things to help the swelling and pain. First it said to put ice on the bites for the swelling. Next it said to take apple cider vinegar, (I use Spectrum brand as it is organic and raw) and tap it on the bite to help get the stinger out if there is one and then it said to make a paste of baking soda and apple cider vinegar to relieve the pain and apply that on the bites.

With in a half hour the swelling had gone down, the redness started to fade and the sharp pain/burning had subsided. I highly recommend having these items on hand especially the apple cider vinegar. To see all the amazing things this staple does, do a search on the internet for benefits of apple cider vinegar.

Tomorrow is a day of going to church and having a cook out with family and friends. The wasp bite will be out of my mind but needless to say my eyes will be on the lookout!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Many stings take place during the fall months. Reason being, bees and wasps are cold blooded insects and they linger around people in order to absorb the body heat of humans, therefore increasing the chances of getting stung.

    Last week, I witnessed a 4 year old girl with her hand and forearm swollen to her elbow, from a wasp sting that she received to her fingertip the day before. The sight of her hand and arm brought tears to my eyes because I knew that if she had, had Baker’s Venom Cleanser Bee Sting Cure available at http://www.BeeStingCure.com, when see was stung, none of her discomfort would have elevated to that extreme point of swelling and discomfort.

    Our web site has under gone some new additions worth taking a look at. 1988 investigative news video footage by George Ciccarone of Cincinnati’s WKRC-TV interviews founder Ray Baker, a pharmacist and others about the effectiveness of Baker’s Venom Cleanser on stings in people as the stings occur. This is a must see amazing video about how to cure bee stings with Baker’s Venom Cleanser. http://www.YouTube.com/BeeStingCure
