Baking soda is an ingredient that we all have at home and we use it for various purposes. It can be used for medicinal but also cosmetic purposes.
It was first manufactured and sold by John Dwight and Dr. Austin Church in 1846. Baking soda was a part of almost every cookbook in the 1860s, but people mostly used it as an additive in cooking. By the 1930s it was an already proved medical agent.
It is widely used in cosmetic products, but it can also be helpful if you use it individually, especially in cases of rashes and acne.
