Epsom salt for sun burns, bee stings and mosquito bites
Epsom salt is often used for mild sunburns, bee stings and mosquito bites. It helps to draw out the imbedded insects stingers, to ease discomfort and sooth the itching.
- You can make a compress by soaking a cotton washcloth in cold water that has been mixed with Epsom salt (2 tablespoon per cup).
- Or, apply a paste from Epsom salt mixed with water that you cool down in the fridge for 20 minutes first.
