For stubborn coughs
Do you have coughs that don’t produce phlegm? Try horehound hard candies. I finished off a whole bag once when I was sick. I dirtied at least four handkerchiefs, it works!
Allspice for toothache and sore gums
Allspice has an antiseptic quality, stir in a small spoonful into a warm glass of water. Swish and gargle. Supposedly this can also freshen your breath.
I am making an attempt at not using shampoo and conditioner on my hair anymore. Since I can’t go Burt’s Bee’s (I love the stuff but it is out of my price range). I also heard that egg can help too. I haven’t tried the egg part yet.
Here is what I did,
- 1 Tbsp baking soda
- 1 cup water
- Let baking soda dissolve
- Wet hair
- I haven’t really mastered this part yet…put mixture on your hair, and lather (???) it. It won’t suds up like regular shampoo does.
- Rinse throughly.
For a conditioner
- 1 Tbsp Apple Cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp water
- Combine .
- I put the ends of my hair into the cup and swish.
Let me know how it works for you!
For a few months in my junior year of high school I suffered from leg cramps. It was to the point where I was afraid to go to sleep at night. After talking with the doctor they suggested this remedy.
Put an unused bar of soap at the end of your bed.
I tried it, but I wanted faster relief. So this is what I did-
- Take an old pair of socks
- Put an unused bar of soap in each of them
- Wear ‘em to bed!
It worked for me. Do this along with drinking tonic water.
You hear about the nightmares of gum getting stuck to whatever. I heard the peanut butter remedy, but I have a less messy solution. Ice in a plastic bag. Mom did this the ONE time I got gum stuck in my hair.
The ice makes the gum hard and more easy to pick off. As for the peanut butter solution, if it was stuck in hair, yeah, I could do it because you can always wash it out. But if it got stuck on the carpet or something, ice would be better.
