Home Remedies

With modern technology we find ourselves constantly relying on the newest and recommended best products to take care of our everyday needs.  Well I would like to take a minute and reflect back to some home remedies that I have heard and experienced over the years…

Baking Soda Bath – We have all experiences unexpected sunburns or an accidental burn form an iron.  Before burn cream, people used to put baking soda in warm bath water to sooth the sting from burns.  I have unfortunately had to use this remedy on myself and it really works.

Onions can help kick your cold! – There was a point in my life I felt as though getting a cold was an every other week event.  Finally a friend approached me with a home remedy that at first I thought was odd but then warmed up to reality that it works.  When you feel as though you are coming down with a cold cut an onion and place one half by your bed and the other across the room.  Not only does the smell of the onion keep your sinuses clear, (making it easier to rest) there is something about the onion that as it dries it absorbs bacteria in the air.  Don’t believe me try it, you will find you get better quicker!

Toothpaste Removes Blemishes – One day I was visiting my grandma and happen to have a very uncomfortable and deep pimple on my face.  She drug me to the bathroom before going to bed and smothered toothpaste all over the blemish.  I woke up in the morning to have the pimple half the size it was from the night before. WHAT! One more night and it was completely gone without spending any money on expensive products or painfully trying to rip it off my face.

Garlic as a Natural Antibiotic – With all the medical hype about not over using antibiotic because of your body building up a tolerance, why not start helping yourself on a daily basis?  Garlic can be used for more than just repulsing people with bad breath, including it into your daily vitamins can help build up your natural immunities.

Frozen Waffles for Teething Babies – I recently asked my Facebook follower for their own home remedies and Patricia was nice enough to include a mother’s perspective.  Apparently frozen waffles can give teething babies relief with a cold and soft texture.
