The Power of Baking Soda

My Mother Says that Baking Soda is much more powerful than we realise! Baking Soda is best known for its use in the kitchen but it’s more than a cooking agent. Baking Soda is also a great (non-toxic) cleaning agent. And more interestingly, Baking Soda also does wonders for your health in restoring your body’s PH balance. Did you know that baking soda has been termed a “proven medical agent”? Some uses of Baking Soda:

  • A Natural deodorant – you can mix a teaspoon of baking soda with water which will result in a milky paste which you can apply to your body as deodorant
  • Relief for itchy skin – the same milky paste can be applied to your skin to help relief allergic skin, sunburn etc.
  • A boost to your kidney functionality – being highly alkaline; baking soda can balance the PH levels of the body. This supports low functioning kidneys which struggle to remove acid from the body.
  • Relief for indigestion – put half a teaspoon of baking soda in around two cups of water and drink this mixture 1-2 hours after eating.
  • For cleaning kitchenware – soak pots and pans in baking soda for around 20mins to get rid of stubborn food residues etc.
  • Fabric softener – add a cup of baking soda to your laundry in your washing machine to serve as a fabric softener
