Baking soda is non-toxic, but be sure you always consult a physician prior use and always purchase the aluminum free variety.
1.ANTACID FOR HEARTBURN:
After eating too fast, or something spicy or acidic, our stomach acid can have unpredictable reactions, and splash up into our esophagus. A teaspoon of baking soda in 250 ml of water can help neutralize and calm your heartburn.
2. MAKE A BATH SOAK:
I’ve said it a thousand times. We are what we ABSORB. A baking soda bath can help alkalize and detoxify your skin, and other areas of your body that you don’t pay much attention to. You can mix about 5 tablespoons of baking soda into your full bath tub and enjoy a detoxifying soak.
