Selene’s Top 5 Treatments for Stings: 🐝🐝🐝🍯

First, remove any embedded stingers as soon as possible. Carefully scrape a stick or credit card parallel and close to the skin so as not to rupture the stinger venom sac further. Do NOT use tweezers to squeeze the stinger to pull it out vertically from the skin if possible.

1. Vinegar - Wasp and Hornet venom contain powerful alkalines. An acid such as vinegar will neutralize it. It can be applied via soaking a cloth and wrapping it as a bandage to help eliminate discomfort. Be sure to keep the stings soaked in the vinegar for at least 20 minutes. Some vinegar will absorb through your skin and into your blood stream to help fight the venom.

2. Baking Soda or Wood Ashes - Mix baking soda or wood ashes with water to make a paste. Apply the paste to the affected area for at least 20 minutes. Wood ashes mixed with water contains sodium bicarbonate - the same as baking soda.

3. Honey - The folkloric miracle aid for everything comes quite full-circle ironic for a treatment of stings. Honey contains natural hydrogen peroxide and anti-bacterial properties and will also help cool and sooth the affected area.

4. Lemon Juice - Apply directly to the affected area to reduce itching and swelling. Lemon and lime juice are very acidic and will aid in neutralization. It neutralizes the alkaline substances of the venom with its acidity.

5. Urine - Repulsive as it sounds, if you’re in the woods with nothing else, urine is also highly acidic and contains nitrogen which will help neutralize the venom just as well if not better than these other treatments. It might just save your life if you’ve been stung multiple times.

If you can, also wash the affected area in an icy cold stream or use ice itself to reduce blood/venom circulation and swelling. Always consult a doctor immediately if you are allergic or develop adverse reactions.

june in rock n rolla was written in by guy ritchie especially for gemma because he wanted her to be in his next film — i hope that means she’s coming back for the sequel.

oooooooh, really? I’m excited now! Enjoyed RocknRolla, tbh. Tom Hardy’s character was amazing.

The Moon belonged to the Hive, but Genbu was putting that matter into question.

Rifle rounds thudded into their chitinous targets, the massive shells erupting on contact with the skin, explosive rounds ripping through Thrall and Knight alike. His aim wasn’t as true as usual, given that the other hand had, in fat fingers, the grip of a Knight’s own sword, the reek of the Hive oozing off it as Genbu slowly retreated back up the hill. The Hive was swarming now, and he would have to fall back and reassess his position. There was work to do, so fleeing in full was no option.

Massive footfalls dug into the lunar dust at the peak of the hill, and Genbu reloaded, the swarm rushing up to meet him.

If there was ever a time for backup, this was it.

six random facts about me

I was tagged by the huggable, effervescent reflectingiridescent! (Hee. That rhymed!)

  1. I’ve never been stung by a bee.
  2. I’m not allergic to anything that I know of, but there are several people in my family who are allergic to beestings,  so there’s a higher-than-average possibility I’m allergic to them too.
  3. I went to a Kids in the Hall show in Montreal in 2000. It was awesome.
  4. Daffodils and daisies are my favorite flowers.
  5. My beloved first car was a gold 1984 Dodge Omni (a lot like this one). 
  6. When I was five years old, I decided I didn’t want to be ticklish on my feet anymore. Since then, my feet haven’t been ticklish.

I’ll be sad when this place becomes condos. My favorite castle in the land.
