I love to use Homeopathy for emergencies and illness, but when I can use it make life easier, I love it even more. Summer brings sun and fun, but also the discomforts of sunburn, insect bites, and unbearable heat waves. Here are some great remedies that can prevent the summer downers.
Cantharis- Not only will cantharis take away the pain of a bad sunburn, it will help it heal faster.
Mosquito Bites –
Ledum – Use homeopathic ledum to stop your little ones (and you) from scratching their mosquito bites. It stops the itch! Ledum can also be used for poisonous insect bites and snake bites, but immediate medical attention should be sought.
Staphysagria- Attract mosquitoes? Use this remedy to prevent mosquito bites from happening in the first place! Or take this remedy immediately afterwards to reduce the effect of the bite. Alternate with Ledum to stop the itch.
Apis- When the sting site is swollen and hot, grab Apis. Also indicated for swelling of the throat and mucous membranes, Apis can reduce the reaction to bee stings in a small amount of time. If you are allergic to bee stings use this remedy, but seek medical attention.
Heat and Humidity–
When you feel like the heat is unbearable, grab a cell salt! Nat Sulph 6x every half an hour will help you cope with heat and humidity like you never thought possible.
