Home Remedies That Work

In this day and age we’re so used to taking a pill for this, a pill for that, but have we ever stopped to think what we are putting in our body? Or what would happen when we got so used to these medications that they stop working? This is where home remedies come in. They are quick, easy, healthy, and don’t require a referral! I know most of these remedies we’ve compiled may make you a bit hesitant and I can assure you I was once like you. However, once you jump on this bandwagon, there’s no turning back!

Treating Burns

Whether we’re in the kitchen or doing our hair, burning ourselves is inevitable, especially if you are particularly clumsy like me. Not only is this a painful process, but what’s worse is the scar that these burns leave. Nobody wants scars all over their hands or foreheads and that’s where egg whites come in! Sounds strange right? We thought so too. But just keep listening because it will change your life. The first thing to do is apply cold water to the burned area, next split an egg, slightly beat the egg white and apply it over the burned area. Every hour after continue applying another layer of egg whites and after a few days, your burned area will be back to normal thanks to the collagen from the egg white.

Dark Circles

This effective remedy is great for those who work extra hours and don’t have enough time to catch up on the sleep they are certainly overdue for. Unfortunately, this lack of sleep makes us suffer in more ways than one. What if there was a way to at least make it look like you’re not as tired as you may feel? Well, there is, and it is super quick! Grab one or two fresh tomatoes, one tablespoon of lemon juice, a tiny bit of gram flour and turmeric powder, combine them all into a thick paste and apply it around your eyes. Afterward, rinse with fresh water and wait 10-20 minutes. If you repeat this routine 2-3 times a week you will successfully brighten the skin around your eyes and gradually the dark circles that you dread will disappear!

Sore Throats

Harsh winters mean too many sore throats and in extreme cases strep throat and tonsilitis too. While cough drops and tea may make you feel a bit better, these treatments are not enough to cure the painful situation occurring in your throat. That’s why we are here to tell you about the best tactic that is completely natural and easy. All you need to do is mix 1/2 of warm water of 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp powdered turmeric and garlic this mixture. After gargling, make sure not to eat for at least 1/2 hour so that the spices can effectively destroy the bacteria. Depending on how bad your sore throat is you can repeat as needed throughout the day.
