Please read the Disclaimer before using these
Poison Ivy Treatment - Use equal parts of Apple Cider Vinegar and Water. Dab on the affected skin
areas allowing to dry. Apply as often as needed for relief.
Old-Fashioned Homemade Liniment - Beat up Yolk of one Egg with a tablespoonful of Turpentine
and one Tablespoonful of Apple Cider Vinegar. Apply this to the skin surface, rubbing it in well. This was once recommended for relief from Lameness.
Mouth Sores - Thoroughly wash mouth out three times daily with Hydrogen peroxide and hold one
Teaspoonful of Milk of Magnesia in the mouth three times daily to de-acidify the mouth.
Black Eye or Bee Sting - Make a paste by mixing Meat Tenderizer with Water. Carefully apply this to the sore or inflamed area. You will notice that the bruised blood or venom underneath the skin will gradually break up and disappear.
Shingles - Apply Apple Cider Vinegar, just as it comes from the bottle, to the skin area where the shingles are located, four times during the day and three times during the night if you are awake. The itching and burning sensation in the skin will leave usually within a few minutes after the vinegar is applied. Many old-timers swear by this treatment declaring that the shingles heal much more readily from the regular use of Apple Cider Vinegar.
Varicose Vein Treatment - This old folk remedy is still being used in some foreign countries. Apply Apple Cider Vinegar, just as it comes from the bottle to the varicose veins night and morning, by means of the cupped-hands treatment. Shrinking of the veins should be noticed by the end of a month. In addition to applying the vinegar to the veins, two teaspoonfuls of Apple Cider Vinegar added to a glass of water are also recommended twice a day.
Muscle Cramps - An old time remedy for muscle cramps is two teaspoons of Honey with meals.
If this is done on a regular basis the cramping will usually diminish within one to two weeks. It is recommended that the honey be taken on a regular basis to prevent the muscle cramps returning once you get them to stop. This has proven to be effective in cases of cramps in the feet and legs during the night.
Canker Sores - Make your own canker sore treatment by mixing one teaspoon of Baking Soda in a
half cup of warm water. Use this mixture as a mouth rinse several times a day, especially after meals and before bedtime. This should give you some relief within 24 hours and they will usually clear up totally in about three days.
Headache Treatment - A unique suggestion for a headache is using an ice-cold piece of cooking foil on your forehead. This is said to be perfect for curing a headache. One doctor who has been studying headaches for years says the foil cools the blood and the headache disappears in about two minutes.
Headache Treatment - Two teaspoons of Honey with each meal will banish most headaches. If you
feel a headache coming on, a quick teaspoon can help.
Air Freshener - You can freshen up your home by making your own room air freshener. Just cut an
orange in half, remove the pulp, and fill the peel with regular table salt. This will provide a pleasant, aromatic scent anywhere in the house.
Old-Fashioned Bladder Treatment - Another unique and unusual treatment for bladder infections is
to take a teaspoon of Pure Garlic Juice. This is said to be effective in killing off the bacteria responsible for many bladder infections. This simple treatment can be repeated as often as needed.
Indigestion Relief - Another unique idea for Honey is its use for indigestion. Our ancestors relied on this simple remedy for years. Try using two teaspoons of Honey before lunch and dinner to banish indigestion. The honey helps to stimulate the secretion of digestive juices.
Home-Made Burn Salve - For simple burns occuring around the home, you can whip up a simple
burn salve by mixing together equal parts of the White of an Egg and Castor Oil. Beat this mixture until it forms a creamy paste. Use by applying this to the burn area and keep covered. This is recommended for minor burns only. Any serious burns should be referred to your doctor for treatment.
Quick Burn Treatment - For minor burns of your fingers in the kitchen, just dissolve two or three
aspirin tablets in a bowl of cold water and soak the burn area. Of course, for any serious burns be sure to seek medical treatment.
Mouthwash or Gargle - If you don't have a commercial product available, you can make your own
mouthwash with ingredients you have at home. Mix one teaspoon of Table Salt to a quart of Warm
Water. This is excellent as a gargle for mouth sores and sore throat.
Old-Fashioned Saltwater Gargle - While many of us were growing up, gargling with warm saltwater
was commonly used for a sore throat. It turns out that the relief which was only temporary, was real, and this has even been acknowledged by medical experts.
Old-Fashioned Cough Remedy - You can make a simple cough remedy by boiling one Lemon slowly
for approximately 10 minutes. This will soften the Lemon so that it will be juicier, and it will also soften the rind. Cut the Lemon in two parts and extract the juice with a lemon squeezer. Put the juice into an ordinary drinking glass. Add two Tablespoonfuls of Glycerine. Stir the Glycerine and Lemon Juice mixture well, then fill the drinking glass with honey. (Glycerine can be purchased from your local druggist or pharmacy).
Carpet Cleaner and Deodorizer - Make your own product by combining two cups of cornmeal and
one cup of Borax. Sprinkle this mixture on the carpet and let set for one hour. Then vacuum. Always test before using.
Hand Care - Make a soothing hand treatment to soothe sore and chapped hands by using Granulated
Sugar and Cooking Oil. Put a teaspoon of ordinary sugar from your kitchen in the palm of your hand. Then add a few drops of vegetable oil such as Corn Oil, Olive Oil or Peanut Oil or whatever you may have available. Rub your palms together to mix, then work into chapped areas. The sugar is just abrasive enough to gently remove the scaly, dry skin.
Bladder Infections - One teaspoon of Olive Oil and one teaspoon of Garlic Juice mixed with a glass of warm water should help eliminate the bacteria responsible for bladder infections. Drink three times a day, before meals. Substitute Cranberry Juice for the water if the infection is especially stubborn.
Insect Bites - When bitten by a bee, ant, wasp, yellow jacket or other insects, time is very important. Split an Aloe Vera leaf immediately and lay the leaf over the affected area. Many people report a gradual reduction in pain, little or no swelling, and quick recovery. People have different degrees of sensitivity to insect stings, however, so medical attention may be indicated in some cases.
Sunburned Face - A thick paste of yogurt applied and left on for 15 minutes will reduce
inflammation. Cool Tea Bags or Cucumber Slices will soothe swollen, sunburned eyelids. After rinsing off the Yogurt mask, gently smooth on some burn-relieving Aloe Vera Gel, and be sure to drink plenty of liquids when you have a sunburn — at least 8 to 12 ounce glasses a day. Your skin needs all the moisture it can get from both the inside and the outside.
Bed-Wetting Remedy - One teaspoon of Honey at bedtime cures bed wetting. Use regularly until the
bed-wetting problem is corrected.
Earache Treatment - An early home remedy for ear infections is to put a few drops of warm Garlic
Oil into the ear canal. Then loosely plug the ear with a cotton ball. To make Garlic Oil, crush three or four large cloves of Garlic into 1/2 cup of Olive Oil. Cover tightly and let sit at room temperature for three to four days, strain and keep in a tightly closed container in the refrigerator. Warm as needed.
Toothache Pellets - 1 Tablespoon Beeswax, 2 drops Clove Essential Oil. Melt the wax over low heat
and add the oil. When the mixture is cool enough to handle, shape it into small balls about half the size of your thumbnail. Store these in a small covered jar. Use the pellets over aching teeth. They are good to use when a filling has been lost.
