Re: Home remedies, concoctions, comforts & cures ...
Know any tried & true remedies? Let's put the chemist out of business & share! :wink:
a small dose of caffeine , usually a light tea, is a good help.
About 2 - 3 table spoons of loose herb to 1 1/2 cup of water.
plain white toothpaste on already formed acne.
to prevent acne, I have HEARD.. uing a little touch of baking soda with your face soap helps to keep the skin dry and ward off oil build up.
calamine lotion, and home made oat meal baths.
about 3 cups of oats in a bath tub of warmer then body temp water.
Soak , then lightly scrub the areas with the oats from the water.
Completely coat the hair and scalp and let sit for an hour.
It drowns the living lice and leaves a film that doesnt allow the egg nits to stay on the hair shaft.
again, i heard the baking soda in soap trick before.
ice cold wash cloth.
Put a wash cloth in some water with several ice cubes.
Squeeze out the water and roll it up like a tortilla and lay across the bridge of your nose applying slight pressure just under the lower lid.
I think, you want to keep it in place for about 10 minutes.
those are the ones I know about. ;-)
