The best part about it is that it is infinitely cheaper than many other medicines, natural or otherwise, and has even been used in cosmetics! Here are the many uses for it, other than treating accidents and injuries. We shall now start the countdown.

The deodorants you are used to buying in supermarkets and stores contain unhealthy chemicals such as aluminum and parabens. You can easily avoid such heavy compounds by opting for baking soda instead.
Nothing is simpler than simply brushing baking soda on your feet, underarms or any other problematic area you might have for getting rid of the sweat or any unpleasant smell.
2. Poison Ivy and Insect Bites
A simple mixture of baking soda and some water makes an excellent paste which efficiently reduces any itching caused by insect bites. All you have to do is apply this homemade paste on the affected area.
