Natural Bee & Wasp Sting Remedy Treat With Plantain (Edible) Should you get stung by a Bee or Wasp, at home or when outside, there's probably a quick remedy on your lawn or rough patch of your garden, or simply growing between the cracks & joints of paving near by. Here I show Two Common varieties that grow locally, The Narrow Long Leafed "Plantago Lanceolata " & Broad Leafed "Plantago Major " both of which grow in the UK & abroad ... which I used only yesterday. As we keep Bees, and have them around us all the while, it's good to know we have a regular supply of Plantain, which I needed to use only yesterday .. Ouch.
You can search for & find more varieties but check before you use them .. These two are fine. Warning!! Only pick from areas that you can see are Insecticide & herbicide Spray Free !!!
As a Bee or Wasp Sting remedy .. Choose a few clean leafs of Plantain from a clean environment, if no water is available, give them a quick clean off with a little of your saliva, then chew them "Well" with your front teeth & mixing with saliva between lower lip & teeth until a fine Pulp. Having removed the "Stinger", place the Pulp over affected area. First you'll feel the sting grow a little stronger for a moment or two .. but I promise after only a couple of minutes, you'll hardly know it's there, so great for reliving children, will save a lot of screaming .. Bless .. there'll still be a little discomfort, something like an itch the following day but i find this quite bearable.
