More and more people are becoming environmentally and health conscious. Many people are starting to return to the things and products that our grandparents used to use. More and more of us are realising that many products are full of harmful substances that not only pollute the environment, but also our bodies. They add up, and as the years go by, we can get sicker and sicker. One of the natural products that we are seeing more and more of in our households is baking soda. We can use it in cleaning, but also for purposes that help to protect or improve our health. Let’s see what baking soda is good for.
Baking soda is an excellent cleanser and as such is great for cleaning and caring for teeth and oral cavities. It can also be good for teeth whitening because it is environmentally friendly and safe.
Compared to traditional toothpastes, baking soda effectively removes plaque from teeth without damaging tooth enamel. It gently whitens and cleans teeth and even freshens breath. Usually the cause of bad breath is too much plaque in the oral cavity, which is a major contributor to the growth of bacteria that can linger in the cavity.
Baking soda can also be used as a natural deodorant. If you want to avoid synthetic ingredients, baking soda is a great choice as it contains no harmful substances that could have a negative impact on your health. How to use it? Wet a small towel, sprinkle a little baking soda on it and apply to your underarms.
This popular product also has great skin soothing properties. For skin conditions such as psoriasis, it not only soothes the skin but also significantly reduces itching and irritation. Bathe in baking soda water if you have this or similar problems. Pour half a cup of baking soda into a tub of water and bathe in this water while the problem persists.
Baking soda can also be very effective in cases of athlete’s foot, as it helps to keep the feet dry and prevents bacteria and fungi from multiplying. It is safe to sprinkle baking soda on your feet, but you can also sprinkle it on your shoes to prevent over-infection.
