If you’re a fan of holistic home remedies and natural cures, you’ve probably done extensive research on the subject. And, most likely, you have found sodium bicarbonate many times, since it is a cure for everyone. From ancient tricks to modern applications, sodium bicarbonate has been praised for having amazing uses both inside and outside of your diet. We have compiled.
10 POWERFUL USES OF COOKING SODA
Bicarbonate is not toxic, but be sure to always consult a doctor before using it and always buy the variety without aluminum.
1.ANTACID FOR HEARTBURN:
After eating too fast, or something spicy or acidic, the acid in our stomach can have unpredictable reactions and splash our esophagus. One teaspoon of baking soda in 250 ml of water can help neutralize and calm heartburn.
2. MAKE A RELIEF BATH:
I’ve said it thousands of times. We are what we ABSORB. A bath of baking soda can help to alkalize and detoxify your skin and other areas of your body that you do not pay much attention to. You can mix approximately 5 tablespoons of baking soda in your full tub and enjoy a detoxifying bath.
3. CLEAN THE CLOTHES FOR THE BABY:
Several detergents contain heavy metals and other toxins. Agents that remove stains and odors are often extremely acidic and harmful to human skin, especially for young children and young children. Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with a cup of water and use it to clean stains of beet juice.
4. VEGETABLE AND FRUIT SCRUBBING:
Even though we have talked about the benefits of buying from farmers and organic markets, you still want to clean your fruits and vegetables before eating them. Unless you enjoy salads flavored with soap, I would not recommend lathering your product. You can scrub each vegetable or fruit with baking soda instead.
5. DEODORIZE THE SHOES:
Instead of spraying poisonous aerosol air fresheners into your shoes, allowing the soles of your feet to absorb harmful chemicals, you can spray them with baking soda.
6. TREAT BUG BITES:
Remember when we were children and we ran and played from sunrise to sunset, and even beyond? Do you remember when older children stayed out even later? How even AFTER the street lights came on? Man, they were rebels. They also went crazy for the mosquitoes, but they would leave the next night. They knew something I did not know: they rubbed the toothpaste with their insect bites. It was the sodium bicarbonate that treated it and reduced the itching.
7. UNDER-ARM DEODORANT:
I’ve talked about this before, but in case you haven’t heard, there are plenty of people “up-in-arms” (get it?) about the ingredients in their deodorant or anti-perspirants. Harmful chemicals like aluminum have overwhelmingly been linked to cancer. Try sprinkling some baking soda under there instead of clogging your pores with toxins.
We talked about the horrific side effects of a lifelong fluoride poisoning. You can bypass that tragedy by mixing 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of water and using as toothpaste.
9. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND BAKING SODA TONIC:
We’ve talked about the incredible benefits of RAW, ORGANIC apple cider vinegar, like regulating the probiotics in your gut, boosting immunity etc. Mixing it with baking soda counter-acts the acidity of the ACV, making it easier on digestion. Mix 1 tablespoon of ACV, with 1 teaspoon of baking soda, into 1 tall glass of water.
10. SPRAY ON GARDEN PLANTS:
There’s a ton of debate about pesticides and their harmful effects on us and our environment. Well, there is no debate. They are terrible. There is, however, some debate about mold, worms, and other insects on our produce. Should we “let them be” or find a non-toxic way to “take care of them?” If you take the second route, baking soda may be helpful. Dilute 4 teaspoons of baking soda with 1 gallon of water and gently mist onto your plants. This will discourage bugs and fungi from invading your food.
