Home Remedies In Your Kitchen

I love exploring various home remedies, and am a strong believer in everyone raising a patch of medicinal herbs in the yard, on a balcony, or even in a row of pots on the windowsill. Mint, rosemary, sage and lavender are all easy-to-grow, delicious-smelling herbs with a variety of uses, both medicinal and culinary.

But are you aware of the fact that not just herbs, but many staples which you almost certainly have in your kitchen, can also be used in a variety of safe, effective and healthy home remedies?

Baking Soda – while I mostly use baking soda as a cleaning agent, it can also be used as a quick, temporary treatment for indigestion. Just mix a little baking soda (a ¼ teaspoon) in a glass of water. A paste made of baking soda and water is good for taking the itch out of insect bites.

Lemon – add some lemon juice, or a few slices of lemon, to a cup of warm water (or tea) and honey for a soothing, antiseptic drink when you have a cold, cough or sore throat. The vitamin C in the fruit will also give your immune system a boost.



Olive oil – the health benefits of olive oil are innumerable. A tablespoonful of olive oil in the morning on an empty stomach helps to relieve constipation; a drop or two of warm olive oil will relieve earaches; in addition, olive oil can be applied directly, in small amounts, as a powerful moisturizer for very dry, chafed skin. It is an ingredient in many homemade skin care products.
