Laura Veazey December 9, 2018

A-Age Spots-Using buttermilk, apply to spots with a cotton ball and rinse off after 20 minutes.
Allergies-2 grams of Vitamin C/day from food/supplements.
B-Back Pain-Use concentrated comfrey cream for joint/muscle pain.
Blisters-After washing the area with soap and water, apply petroleum jelly and bandage.
Bug Bites-Make a paste of oatmeal and water, apply to the bite for 10 minutes, and then, rinse off.
Burns-Use pure aloe liquid, either from the leaf or the bottle to the affected area. If it is a
very serious burn, see your doctor.
C-Calluses and Corns-Crush 5-6 uncoated aspirin tablets into fine powder. Mix this with ½ tsp each of
water and lemon juice. Put this paste on the thickened skin, placing a piece of plastic wrap on
it, then covering with a hot towel. Remove all after 10 minutes, and, using a pumice stone, scrub
loosened skin. Do not use aspirin if you are allergic to it, or if you bruising issues, as aspirin
absorbs through the skin.
Canker Sores-For the pain of oral canker sores, try rinsing your mouth with Milk of Magnesia, or
simply applying to the sore/s 3-4 times daily.
Constipation-Ground flaxseed is an excellent form of fiber and promotes good bacteria, as well. For
relief of constipation and stool softening, try to incorporate 2-3 TBSPs per day, in your diet.
Cough-Using thyme, along with primrose or ivy, can help relieve both the frequency and duration of
a cough. You can make thyme tea by steeping 1 TBSP of dried, fresh thyme in 1 cup of hot water.
After steeping for 10 minutes, drain the herb out, then add honey to taste.
D-Diarrhea-Use blackberries via tea, for diarrhea relief. Make the tea by boiling 1-2 TBSPs of
fresh/frozen blackberries or blackberry leaves in 1 ½ cups of water for 10 minutes. Be sure to
strain the fruit/leaves out. You can drink multiple cups of it per day.
