Do you know all the power of baking Soda?

This little box has at least 51 different uses: as a healing product, cleaner, to neutralize odors, as toothpaste, as a facial scrub and it’s also a strong leavening agent for baking.

Health benefit of baking soda for occasional heartburn or indigestion: Most over-the-counter antacids, such as Alka-Seltzer, Tums, and Rolaids, contain some form of bicarbonate. But a more cost-effective way to relieve occasional heartburn and indigestion is to stir half a teaspoon of baking soda into half a cup of water and drink it an hour or two after meals.

Here’s a nontoxic but effective way to clean your tub: Add one teaspoon of liquid soap and several drops of an antibacterial essential oil (such as tea tree, eucalyptus, rosemary, or peppermint) to one cup of baking soda. Add just enough water to form a paste and use it with a sponge or brush to scour bathtub surfaces.
