Aspirin: More Than Just A Pain-Reliever


Asprin’s main ingredient is salicylic acid, which has been used for a very long time when it comes to treating pain and inflammation. The truth is that it can help with more than just pain.

Bites and Stings

Aspirin is effective in dealing with the itch and pain of these injuries by rubbing aspirin over the impacted area.


Aspirin can be crushed up and mixed with some water to make a paste that deals with acne. Just leave on the area for a few minutes, and rinse thoroughly with soap and water.

Skin Mask

Aspirin can be a great skin mask for redness, swelling, reducing oil, and removing dead skin cells. Crush up five tablets, and mix it with a 1/4 cup of water and a teaspoon of honey. Put this mask on your skin and leave for about 10 minutes before rinsing it off with water.


You can also make a mask for dealing with calluses. Take five tablets, crush them up before mixing them with some lemon juice and about a half teaspoon of honey. Put this onto your callused area, and wrap it in a warm towel. You can secure this with plastic wrap for about ten minutes. The mixture will soften the callus enough that you can rub them with pumice to remove them.



Just add two crushed up tablets to your shampoo. Use your shampoo as normal, and you’ll be treating your dandruff thanks to the reduced scalp inflammation and the exfoliating power.

Hair Color

Swimming in the pool and all that chlorine can be bad for your hair color. Dissolving about six pills in water and rubbing it into your hair will help. You’ll want to keep it in there about 10 to 15 minutes.


Soak perspiration stains into a mixture of water and several crushed tablets for a few hours.


An aspirinpaste of several tablets and water can be an effect scrub for cleaning your cookware.

Makes Your Garden Grow

Adding a crushed aspirin pill in the base water of the plants postpones their withering and keeps them fresh for longer. According to Judy Jernstedt, professor of plant sciences at UC Davis, the “salicylic acid reduces ethylene production, and with less ethylene present, floral senescence is delayed and the flowers last longer. The anti-fungal properties of salicylic acid dissolved in the vase water may also slow growth of mold, which if it enters the cut stem, can damage or clog the vascular tissue.
