Bee Stings Hurt! Relief Is....WHERE?

Some people are highly allergic to bee stings and need to seek medical attention right away or they could die if the reaction is bad enough. However, for those who are not allergic to a sting,  they are still incredibly painful and sometimes hard to avoid if you find yourself outdoors often.

Here are some quick and natural relievers you may have laying around your home:
Onion- Slice an onion and hold or tape it on the sting for about an hour.
Baking Soda- Make a paste with a little water and apply to area of sting.
Apple Cider Vinegar- Place a small amount on a cotton swab and rub over the sting.
Lavender Oil- Apply one small drop to affected area. This is only a spot treatment and should not be used in large areas. 
Meat Tenderizer- The kind you use in cooking is perfect for making a paste and applying it to the sting to provide relief. 

*Keep in mind if you have serious allergies to bee stings seek medical help.
