Bear here... Currently I am not a happy guy!
I was grilling the tomatoes for our salsa that Theresa was going to can this weekend. I was done and decided to take a drink out of my root beer bottle and something was floating in the swig I took. Before I could spit it out, the bee stung my inner lip. When I looked, there were three other bees floating in the bottle, drinking MY root beer! Little turds.
A home remedy for bee stings is a baking soda and water paste on the area stung. Problem one, the paste tastes nasty. Problem two, have you ever tried to keep a thin paste between your lip and teeth? It goes all over the place in the mouth. Time for something different...
Plantain is the plant of choice. Chew a big leaf and keep it in place like you would chewing tobacco.
(Plantain is the weed in the photo to the left with the oval leaves and flower spikes. Theresa suggested I try it for the sting, and followed me to the yard to make sure I picked the right plant. She reminds me that I should suggest you research all plants for yourself before deciding what's good to use for yourself or your family.)
