Slice of Onion help make bee stings wound feel better



I have heard about homespun apply-onion-to-a-bee-sting remedy from friends this year. I am just wondering if it does really work. Some of my friends said that because of the onion, it does take the pain away almost right away. I am very curious but didn't want to try to get stung myself. Until then I can't confirm its effectiveness.

Today my little girl ran into the house with tears and told me that she got stung by a bee. Here's my chance to try this remedy out. So I walked right up to my onion pile, cut the end off and gave her the piece. I told her to put it on and hold it where she got stung for a while. Within the first 5 minutes, she said she felt better already and by 10 minutes, she ran in with smile and said all the pain had gone. I told her to keep it on a little longer (Just in case.). But she didn't want to hold it on anymore. Well, I guess, it works!

What about you? Have you applied cut onions to your bee stings? If so, did it do the trick? Share your experience with us.

  4. I haven't tried this. Glad it worked for your daughter. My standby treatment is putting a paste of baking soda and water on the sting - I learned it from my aunt when my little cousin stepped on a bee in her bare feet.
