Natural Healing: Papaya


Keep a fresh papaya around the home during bee season if you can. To soothe a bee sting quickly, apply fresh papaya to the sting. Meat tenderizer, the traditional sting remedy, contains papaya extract. Fresh papaya works as well. The enzyme in papaya breaks down the proteins that make up insect venom. For maximum effectiveness, apply this remedy as soon as possible after being stung.
