4 Best Home Remedies for Bee Sting

Bee sting can be quite painful. The reason is that after stinging, a bee releases venom which is a neurotoxin that causes pain. They sting in defense, never as an attack. If you’ve been stung by a bee, there are a few home remedies for bee sting that work. Beforehand, here is what you can do right after a bee sting.

Bee Sting First Aid

  1. The first thing we need to do is move away from the area where you were assaulted, as you may have inadvertently hit a hive of insect warriors and risk a new series of bee stings.
  2. If the needle is left in the skin, it should be removed as soon as possible with tweezers or a fingernail.
  3. Do not attack the insect while it is still attached to the skin, because in this case it will release even more venom.
  4. Immediately use the first aid arsenal home remedies for bee sting below.

4 Best Home Remedies for Bee Sting

1. Organic Vitamin C

Mainly, organic vitamin C blocks the release of histamine, the antibody produced by our own immune system that causes swelling, pain, chills and other complications after a bee sting.

It is found in health food stores, in the form of capsules or in honey (the children’s version) and is very quickly assimilated by the body, which will reduce the allergic reaction produced by the bee’s venom.

The recommended dose of vitamin C for bee sting is 200-1000 mg (the dose is much higher than usual), because the body will tend to use a larger amount of this nutrient to cope with the effects of bee sting.

2. Chamomile Poultice

It seems like an “too easy” bee sting remedy, but in reality, chamomile is one of the best natural antiallergics, helping reduce inflammation, pain and itching, considerably shortening the healing time.

Make a paste with 1-2 tablespoons of powdered chamomile flowers and a little water. Wash the area thoroughly with soap and water. Apply the paste directly on the bee sting and covered with a gauze.

If you do not have chamomile at hand, you can use one of the following two bee sting remedies.

3. Onion Juice for Bee Sting

  • Cut the onion bulb in half, take one of the halves and squeeze lightly, draining the juice on the affected area.
  • Immediately afterwards, crush 2-3 leaves from the other half of the onion and put on the sting site.
  • Place an ice cube on top of the onion leaves.
  • The ice cube will greatly reduce the inflammation and the burning sensation of the bee sting.

4. Cabbage Poultice

Crush well a fine cabbage leaf by beating it with the dull part of the knife blade. Place it on the bee sting, and tie it in place with a bandage. Every half hour, changed the cabbage leaf with a freshly crushed one, so that the skin always comes into contact with the fresh cabbage juice.

Just like the onion poultice, this home remedy for bee sting has anti-inflammatory and mild anti-allergic effect.
