Does anyone have any homemade herbal recipes they use for medicinal purposes they would like to share? Everything from cuts and bug bites/stings, to colds and headaches!
I use Tea Tree essential oil for minor cuts and wounds but I've also found it very useful for thrush-mind you it feels like a breeze is blowing down there if you know what I mean
I once had a stye and got rid of it by using calendula and chamomile flowers that I used as a compress-not sure if compress is the right word but basically I put them in a small drawstring pouch after having soaked them in water.
This is not herbal but when you get a mosquito bite spit is actually not that bad if you're itching and have nothing around you at hand.
For colds I cut up some ginger and let it simmer in boiling water for about 5-10 mins and then I put the pieces in a cup and add honey and lemon juice and hot water-I've used this when I had an annoying sore throat and chewed on the ginger pieces and it did relieve the sore throat pretty well!
