Here are some of the natural remedies Eileen shared with me for insect bites and a non-toxic household ant repellant.
INTERNAL REMEDY FOR INSECT BITES
Take 3 drops of echinacea tincture mixed with 3 drops of goldenseal tincture in distilled water twice daily for 5-7 days.
TOPICAL REMEDY FOR INSECT BITES
Mix aloe vera gel with equal amounts of lemon juice and apply to the bite to reduce swelling and itching.
Of course with any insect or animal bite, eliminate all sugar and concentrated sweeteners from your diet and increase your low starch veggie intake along with liberal amounts of Bieler’s Soup. Since Eileen told me many times that a small amount (the operative word is SMALL here) of lemon acts as a cleanser to the system, I would always add a squeeze of lemon to my Bieler’s Soup.
I asked Eileen once about her feelings regarding the popular lemon juice/cayenne pepper/maple syrup daily cleanse and her response was that “less is best”, using a remedy as stimulating as this one only when needed AND if the adrenals are relatively strong/thyroid not over stimmed. She went on to say “when needed” would be at the onset of a cold or flu if the weather was cold and only once daily for a day or so.
HOUSEHOLD ANT REPELLANT
Mix together equal amounts of :
Epsom Salts & flour (any kind) with the white of one egg
Stir until well blended and sprinkle at the entrance of any ant trails. This remedy has always worked like a charm for me over the years!
