10 Benenfits that can be received from Baking Soda

Here are 10 thing that you can do with Baking Soda and the benefits of doing them. To me personally, I think were just scratching the surface with these.

1. Baking soda is known to increase plaque removal, that’s why it’s widely used in toothpaste. And you can make your own toothpaste with it, the totally natural trick to fresh your breath.
Mix together baking soda(2/3 cup), optional salt(1 teaspoon), and peppermint essential oil(10-15 drops). Add a little water at a time, stir till the paste reaches desired consistency.

2. Also, it works well as a bug bite soother. Create a paste with a teaspoon of baking soda and water, keep applying it for 2-3 times a day until the bite dissipates.

3. Compare with other options, baking soda is a cost-effective way to reduce heartburn and indigestion. Add half a teaspoon of baking powder to two cups of water and drink some an hour after eating may help.

4. Mix baking soda with warm water to wash hands and feet, this trick will leave your hands soft, and baking soda will remove bacteria and odors to protect your feet.

5. DIY natural deodorant: You can create your own deodorant with baking soda, just mix a teaspoon of baking soda with enough water to create a milky paste, and then rub it under your underarms, it works! (This needs to be said)

6. Baking soda is the perfect remedy to relieve ulcer pain. Drink a cup of water with one teaspoon of baking soda to reduce the pain.

7. Simply combine one teaspoon of baking soda with half a cup of water, then you get your face exfoliator. Rub it on your face in a circular motion, this can help you remove dry skin easily. (And you can save a lot of money that you would've spent in Oil of Olay. You know who you are.)

8. You can create your own teeth whitener with a teaspoon of baking soda and water. Rub the paste onto your teeth once a week, rinse your mouth after 5 minutes, this will make your teeth looking pearly white.

9. Baking soda is a natural itchy skin relief, mix a teaspoon with some warm water to create a paste, and then rub it on your itchy skin to reduce the discomfort.

10. Add a teaspoon of baking soda to your shampoo when washing hair, then you’ll find it’s easy to remove dirt and oil.
