Note: I or a member of my family have personally used each of these treatments and lived to tell about it. Your own results may vary. Read the caution statement and use your own judgment.

Caution: Unless you know exactly what you're doing, NEVER substitute home remedies for competent medical care by a licensed physician!

These offerings are for reference only and while many may be effective, their use is at the sole risk of the reader.


Antibiotic: Garlic is a natural antibiotic and has been used to prevent infection in wounds for centuries. I apply a little commercially available garlic oil when at home. In case of a cut or scrape away from the kitchen, just look around until you see those familiar looking shoots of wild garlic (sometimes known as "wild onions"). Dig up a bulb or two, peel away the outer skin and squeeze the juice directly onto the wound.

Antiseptic: I just thought lavender oil smelled nice until I learned what a great antiseptic it is. I use it all over the house, from disinfecting countertops to treating our scrapes and scratches.

Bee stings:
For most people wasp and bee stings are painful and annoying, and can be relieved somewhat by topical application of a small amount of wet tobacco. (If you are allergic, venomous insect bites and stings can be deadly. Get emergency medical treatment immediately!)

Bleeding:
Sprinkle a bleeding wound with cayenne pepper: This sounds worse than it is! It will quickly stop bleeding in mild cuts and actually burns much less than most over the counter treatments. I have to admit I was skeptical until I tried it myself.
Note: This is not for major wounds. For any injury where arterial blood flow (spurting) is evident, apply direct pressure to the wound and get emergency medical treatment immediately!

Bruises and muscle aches:
Comfrey tincture applied to the affected area works wonders for minor bruises, aches and muscle strains. I apply a gauze bandage saturated with the stuff and leave it overnight. This is also helpful in soothing minor (1st degree) burns. For hard to bandage areas, such as hands or feet, I've used a clean cotton glove or sock in place of gauze.

Colds:
While medical science still hasn't come up with a cure for the common cold, they've come pretty close: The new zinc lozenges are the best thing since sliced bread for knocking one out in a hurry! We keep them on hand and the whole family takes them whenever one of us gets the sniffles. Besides helping your body fight off the infection, they actually seem to help prevent the spread of the virus by making the nasal passages an inhospitable environment for it. Look for them flavored ones with extra vitamin C. Besides zinc, the things your mama always told you still help, too: Drink plenty of fluids, especially fruit juices rich in vitamins. Avoid coffee, tea and other caffienated beverages, as they actually make you lose fluids. Hot chicken soup is good for helping break up congestion. Echinacea is a good herbal supplement to take during cold and flu season, and extra doses help strengthen the immune system.

Insomnia:
This is not a major problem for me; I once slept through an explosion that destroyed a home a half block west of me, and knocked a friend of mine who lived a half block to the east off his couch. When I sleep, you might as well just ring the bed with crime scene tape and give it up until morning.
Once in a blue moon I'll succumb to everyday life's worries with a sleepless night like everyone else, though. When that happens a puff or two of damiana smoke is very relaxing and lets you wake up refreshed. I also understand it works well when brewed into a tea, but never tried it that way myself.

Earache:
Warm garlic oil (I use the commercial gel caps sold as dietary supplements) to body temperature and place 4-5 drops in the affected ear, using a bit of sterile cotton to hold in if necessary. The warm oil will coat and soothe the ear, and garlic is a natural antibiotic. (My pharmacist recommended "sweet oil", a type of mineral oil, for it's analgesic qualities. It makes the ear feel better but does nothing for the infection.)
Firechild once complained of an ear infection on a Friday evening after her doctor had closed for the weekend. It became so severe she was throwing up and running a fever that night. The next day I bought the garlic oil and treated her ear. She felt better within hours, and when she was able to see the doctor on Monday morning all signs of the infection were gone!

Sore throat:
This remedy's been around so long it's almost cliché, but it works: Gargle a warm solution of a teaspoon of salt in a cup of water. Repeat as necessary.

Toothache:
To keep my sanity until I could get into the dentist's office the last time I lost a filling I packed the cavity with cotton saturated with clove oil. This keeps out food particles and deadens the nerve endings due to the natural anesthetic qualities of cloves.
