Natural Remedies for Bee Stings

Some people have very serious reactions to stings and need to be taken to the hospital right away.  However, most peopleflying bee do well with these home herbal treatments.

Sometimes a sting needs to be tended to several times a day for even up to two days. This means the herbal remedy may need to be removed after several hours and applied fresh again.  A large bandaid or gauze pad can be secured over the poultice so that the remedies stay in place when moving about.
