Home Remedies


so here we are…smack dab in the middle of fall/early winter.  I’ve already got a sick child.  So I thought I would post some home remedies that work and that have no side effects.

This first one is interesting….when Evan was coming out of surgery at the hospital …instead of giving him anti nausea medicine they gave him gauze with peppermint oil on it.  They said it works better.  They are right and I have been utilizing this one for years.

so for nausea…a little peppermint oil or spearmint oil on a gauze pad works great…..just sniff from time to time.  Can’t beat it!

2.  Cough syrup

1/4 cayenne pepper

1/4 ginger

4 tablespoons braggs apple cider vinegar or vinegar

1/2 lemon or splash of lemon juice.


1/2 cup water

mix these ingredients in a small container and shake every time you use it.  Take one tablespoon at a time.  Make sure you shake it because red pepper doesn’t dissolve well. Woo hoo!

Hot Tea for congestion and sore throat

pinch of cayenne

pinch of ginger

lemon juice


fill up cup with boiling water and stir well before each sip.

Sore nose

now…you know how you get that raw nose from wiping it and blowing it?

just add 2 drop of lavender to a little vaseline….mix it up and put it on the sore part of your nose.

These remedies are effective and best of all they have no side effects!  Hope my daughter feels better soon and hope my internet friends are staying healthy!
