To a non-homesteader, baking soda, also called bicarbonate of soda or bicarb, may be just another item in your kitchen that rarely gets used. But a homesteader knows that baking soda can be used for some recipes and even for cleaning your kitchen, as previously noted. Here Zoey Sky, NaturalNews.com, reflects on stocking up on baking soda:
“A prepper understands the importance of stocking up on supplies before SHTF. While food and water are important, you also need to stock up on other items with many survival and medicinal uses like baking soda. (h/t to PrepSchoolDaily.Blogspot.com)
Before disaster strikes, you should stock up on enough baking soda so that each family member has at least 1.5 pounds per year. If you want to cover various medical and medicinal needs as well, you may need to double that amount.
Here are some of the medicinal uses of baking soda:
Different toothpaste products contain baking soda. Baking soda kills bacteria and helps make your teeth whiter. Using baking soda to clean your teeth can help kill Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria that thrive in the presence of sugar.
After SHTF, you can brush your teeth with just baking soda. Alternatively, you can make a DIY toothpaste with baking soda and coconut oil.
Combine one tablespoon of baking soda and one tablespoon of coconut oil. For a minty baking soda toothpaste, add a drop or two of peppermint essential oil.
If you have canker sores, treat them by applying a baking soda paste to the sores. You can also stir one teaspoon of baking soda into a half cup of water. Swish the mixture around in the mouth to relieve your symptoms.
Soda can also help relieve certain skin conditions.
You can apply a baking soda and water paste (use a 3:1 ratio) to relieve the itchiness of bug bites and stings. You can also add baking soda to bathwater to relieve itchy skin caused by exposure to poison oak, ivy or sumac. Baking soda can also help relieve sunburns.”
