5. Basic First Aid
Are you suffering from a sore throat, heartburn or nausea? Baking soda can help you with all of these issues. For a sore throat, you can make a mouthwash from baking soda and water. Gargling with this mixture will help relieve your pain. Adding a ½ teaspoon to four ounces of water will provide you with a natural antacid. Make sure that you wait until the powder has become fully dissolved to utilize this remedy.
