    What are you favorite home remedies?

    Personally, I love putting cucumbers on paper cuts and using lemon juice to fight acne. Do you have any home remedies for common ailments?

    I use the gel in vitamin E capsules to fight my acne by smearing it all over my face nightly. I also use it to take the sting out of burns, and stop the itching from mosquito bites. I take black cohosh to regulate my period, and control my headaches. I take about 3000 to 5000mg of niacin a day for depression, along with a B complex vitamin that contains Vit C and Rose Hips. Since my hair tends to be frizzy right after a shampoo, I use vitamin E oil in my hair. I juice several times a day to cleanse toxins and boost my immune system. On occassion, I'll use aromatherapy when all else fails.

    I use Garlic oil capsules for infections or illness (works similar to antibiotics)

    I use lavender oil to soothe the air so we can have nice and peaceful sleep every night.

      I make dream sachets for under my pillow with lavender. I find it very relaxing.

      I do believe that now you can even buy pillow that has a sachet of lavender within.

    Cold water!  Any time my younger son (almost two) gets a bump, he says "Wawa!"  A splash of cold water helps, and we have one of those blue gel packs in the fridge (wrapped in a soft cloth) to hold against bigger bumps.

    Vaseline petroleum jelly -- not the generic brands, but the real thing.  Vaseline is the perfect home remedy for scratches, burns, insect bites and many other skin ailments.  Running low on lotion?  Use vaseline until you can stock back up on your skin lotion.  I recently bought a small jar of vaseline, that had a cute pop open top.  I guess if the content can't be improved, the packaging can!

    I use cucumber and teabags on tired eyes. I also have a aloe vera plant where you can use the leaves pulp if you get burned.

    When we were younger the theory of spitting on a docket leave and rubbing it on the area you got burned with nettles was a popular theme.

    Recently, I discovered the multi use of waterless soap.  The antibacterial germ sanitizer is great for removing burnt foods from glass and ceramic pots and pans.  Got something sticky on your drinking glass or vase or ceramic trinket, dab some of the sanitizer and with a little rubbing the stuff comes right off with ease.  If you spill some sauce on your jeans or shirt....with a little dab you can work that spot out in seconds!  It is not just and hand sanitizer anymore.  The internet is full of all kinds of uses...check it out!

    But my favorite remedy in the house is Tea Tree.  From cleaning house and carpets to those nasty summertime cuts and bug bites including spiders.  An essential oil I would not do without.
