Simple and convenient…..

There have been many times in my life when a bite, a burn, a sore has occurred and there has been NOTHING in the house medicinally with which to salve it, cure it or simply make it drop off. Now, after having read the Medhelp article by Daniel Halperin regarding home remedies for all types of “boo-boos”, I am ready to tackle any nasty thing that may happen.

Tea has been a curative for years and years. The tea leaves (not herbal teas) contain both acids and tannins that hold remedial powers.

A) Black Tea for Burns …. Soak 2 or 3 black tea bags in lukewarm water for 20 minutes. Then place the bags on the burns for 20 minutes while the acid in the tea leaves absorb the heat and lessen pain.

B) Tea Bags for Puffy Eyes …. Brew 2 teabags (not herbal) and let them
completely cool. Place one bag on each eye for 10 minutes while the tannins (particles in the leaves) start to tighten the skin cells around the eyes. The puffiness is reduced. This process is particularly useful for eyes that suffer in allergy season.

Did you know?

…mouthwash works on lice. It eases itching and the alcohol content will help to remove the lice from the scalp. Lean head back and pour mouthwash all over the scalp. Put on a shower cap and let the mouthwash to soak in for 1.5 to 2 hours and then rinse completely. Be very careful not to let any mouthwash get in one’s eyes.

…yogurt is good for Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms. It is believed that those with IBS do not have sufficient probiotics. Yogurt is full of probiotics so eating yogurt may help reduce the symptoms.

…there are certain beverages that are good for nausea. Small sips of ginger ale or ginger tea work well. The ginger neutralizes stomach acid and relaxes muscles. Flat cola works as well and 100% cranberry juice (not cranberry juice cocktail) will reduce the oh so nauseous feelings.

I hope you never experience any of the lousy feelings but if you do, you now have some simple and convenient remedies.
Please let me know any household remedies you have and I will compile the best go-to reference of all times!!  How's that?
