How to Cure Jellyfish Sting with Natural Treatments

  1. Wash immediately with apple cider vinegar, DO NOT wash with water!
  2. Wash with vinegar immediately.
  3. To relief the pain from jellyfish stings and help the stings disappear, smear some castor oil on the stings every day.
  4. Cover the Jellyfish Sting with sand.
  5. Apply Aloe Vera on the Jellyfish Sting

The urban legend is that if you get a jelly fish sting, you should pour urine on it (not necessarily have someone urinate on it) to reduce the toxicity of the venom in the skin.


The second priority is making sure the stinger does not come in contact with fresh water. The jellyfish tentacle swells in the presence of fresh
water and becomes much more difficult to remove.


And while rubbing alcohol does not cause the tentacle to swell, in some species rubbing alcohol "triggers" the tentacle to fire off its venom.


Meat tenderizer might actually help for a few minutes, but it can also irritate the skin of the victim. Cold packs seldom help.

  1. Step 1

    Cover the sting with sand from the beach as soon as the sting occurs. Beach sand helps draw out toxins from jellyfish stings. Keep the sting covered for 5 to 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Wash the sting with apple cider vinegar after removing the sand. The apple cider vinegar will help reduce the pain from the sting and will also disinfect it.

  3. Step 3

    Rub aloe gel onto the jellyfish sting after washing it with apple cider vinegar. This will soothe the sting and provide a nice barrier to the outside
    world. Once you've applied the aloe gel, loosely cover the sting in
    gauze tape and secure it.

  4. Step 4

    Apply castor oil to the jellyfish sting every day until the sting starts to heal. Use a cotton ball to apply the castor oil.

  5. Step 5

    Apply a paste made of unseasoned meat tenderizer and water to the sting if it still hurts in a day or two. You can also apply this paste right away, after washing the sting with apple cider vinegar.
    Don't leave this paste on for more than 10 minutes at a time.

  6. Step 6

    Rub homeopathic Apis onto the sting if you experience excessive redness or swelling, or if you get hives.

Poison Ivy

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
