Backing baking soda

The use of baking soda is diverse. Surely you have once dissolved a teaspoon of baking soda in half a glass of water to help with your stomach acids. Of course, you used it while cooking, but baking soda has a wide field of use: for medical purposes, in cosmetics, personal hygiene, and more.

Here are some wonderful uses for baking soda that you just have to know about:

  • Toothpaste: A very simple and effective use is the use of sodium bicarbonate instead of toothpaste or as a toothpaste supplement. Place a half to one teaspoon of baking soda on the toothbrush and carefully brush your teeth and clean the oral cavity and tongue. You will immediately feel the effect. You can first put a thin layer of toothpaste on the brush and then add baking soda. (This is a very good news for those who are aware of the fluoride conspiracy.)
  • Rinse for mouth and throat: In a half cup of water put one teaspoon of baking soda and stir until melted sodium. You can add a little (at most half a teaspoon) salt. By rinsing your mouth with this liquid, you will destroy the microbes. Such fluid also gives excellent effects in the treatment of a sore throat.
  • Hand cleanser: Take a little soda-bicarbonate (one teaspoon) and use it as a hand-washing agent. Be careful not to “escape” the baking soda under the jet of water. For a minute or two gently rub your palms from the back and then rinse. The result is immediately visible – the skin after the peeling is clean and gentle. After the peeling, you can put some light hand cream. You can use the same recipe for facial and body peeling.
  • Deodorant: Baking soda is a remarkable deodorant, an extraordinary neutralizer of unpleasant smells. It can be most easily used if you apply it as a powder. Another way to use it is the following: Dissolve one to two teaspoons in half a glass of water and if you have some essential oil with your favourite fragrance, add one drop. Make the prepared liquid in a vial with a nozzle for easier application of the deodorant.
  • Hair shampoo: Another example of cosmetic use and personal hygiene is the use of baking soda as a shampoo for hair. Take two to three (depending on the abundance of the hair) teaspoons baking soda and use them as a shampoo for the hair. Rinse your hair and repeat the procedure. The hair will be clean and gentle, and you will probably completely remove dandruff. The effect is even more visible in the case of oily hair or hair that uses a lot of gels. Instead of washing with baking soda only, the use of adding baking soda in a little shampoo is more common.
  • Dry shampoo for hair: Baking soda is an excellent replacement for the hair dry spray at times when you do not have time to wash your hair with water. How to use it? Put a little (do not overdo) on the root of the hair and leave for 3-4 minutes to act and soak the oil. Then brush your hair and comb it beautifully.
  • Shoe deodoriser: Having stinky shoes is a common problem that can be quite embarrassing. Luckily, baking soda is also a great remedy for freshening up stinky shoes. Pour two tablespoons of baking soda into two cheesecloths or thin pieces of fabric. Secure the cloths with a rubber band or string and place one in each shoe. Remove the baking soda bags when you want to wear your shoes.

 

These are just a few checked unusual applications of sodium bicarbonate where the effect is immediately apparent. It is used in many other ways – as a household cleaning agent, against burns, as a facial mask and other adhesives, and therefore we can say it is captivating.

  7. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hi,

    Hope you can assist. Lately I have been having lapses in concentration were my mind just wonders off. Did a check and all health signs are fine. A friend suggested that I try some of your products as he said it assisted him.

    Only issue is that I would rather prefer to smoke you canna oil in vape than take this orally. The reason is that it attracts less attention if I go for a smoke break than to constantly go and take a “potty break”. There is still a stigma around canabis use and I don’t want my colleague to think weird of me.

    Can your product be used like that?

      Hello, yes our products do really work. For your anxiety and depression we would definitely recommend Cannabalm and Herbal antidepressant, those would be the last products you would ever need.
