The sandy, thick consistency of baking soda turns into a perfect paste for homemade healthcare.
It absorbs the scent of the lavender which not only soothes bites and stings from critters hiding in summer foliage but lavender also has the uncanny ability to calm stress.
1/4 cup baking soda
1 teaspoon lavender oil
2 teaspoons lavender flowers, crushed
Add all ingredients in a small bowl. Add enough water to form a paste and apply to affected area. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated for 3-4 days.
