    This is an old remedy for those painful little ulcers you can get in your mouth. My little sister used to get them every time she ate spaghetti, poor baby, and that was her favorite dish.

    Recipe #199212

    This is a great 3 step regimen to clear up the red marks left from acne!

    Recipe #108346

    No joke, this simple concotion from the famous, Vermont Folk Medicine book by D.C. Jarvis works like a miracle, but it's just Mother Nature at work for us. Apple Cider Vinegar is known to have so many medicinal/healing attributes, so put this one to work for your sore or strep throat. Yep....strep. This will knock the crapola out of the bacteria that's tryin' to knock the crap out of you. Be very sure that you are using real apple cider vinegar, as Heinz now makes an apple cider vinegar "flavored" liquid. (WHY??)

    Honey is antiseptic, cleaning your pores, and toning your skin. It's for your face but go ahead and enjoy the other half of the apple with lemon juices and honey on it whie your face gets renewed!

    Recipe #167602

    Although it is made with food products, I would call this a non-food recipe. If you can bear to part with it, this also makes a wonderful home-made gift idea.

    Recipe #14667

    This is a 50 year old family recipe. I like it because it can be used in several different ways. Plus it contains vitamin C!

    Recipe #57618

    The baby oil gives this scrub a nice fragrance. If you want you can grind the oats in a coffee grinder.

    Recipe #59383

    A great home remedy prescribed by my ear, nose & throat specialist for sinus headaches, congestion, colds, and allergies. The salt water clears the "gunk" out. The baking soda soothes irritated membranes, and the glycerine soothes and moisturizes.

    Great for picinics or playground, any outings. No need to use water. Kids will love to clean their hands with this.

    If you have a painful sunburn, try soaking away your worries in this comforting bath.

    Recipe #69549

    Don't throw away your foam soap dispenser or spend extra on the refills when you run out. It's easy to make your own! This also works with shampoo.

    Recipe #103893

    I work in an office with 5 doctors and as you know, doctors are always washing their hands which makes them dry. We make this lotion for them and they LOVE IT!! **UPDATE 3/31/09: I use 4 oz. of Vaseline petroleum jelly, it would not let me enter it on the ingredients part and for the Vitamin E, you can use lotion or cream, whatever you like or can find. I also tried the NEW cucumber melon baby lotion....AWESOME!!, husband and son liked it but I still like the regular pink the best. I ONLY use J&J baby lotion because it seems to work the best. Thanks to everyone who has given me reviews....

    Recipe #143640

    Found this in the "Alive" magazine. Spray on itchy skin as needed.

    Recipe #131850

    I used this often when my 3 children were young. It really works!!!!! It is very similar to the pricey OTC formula for nausea. If you are queasy - try it!

    Recipe #109693

    This makes your skin feel very soft, it is gentle and not messy. For a dry or sensitive skin use cream or olive oil as a binder, for an oily skin the yogurt. I have a dry skin and I like the cream best, and as that usually comes out of the fridge it makes a nice cool facial. If you have any left, treat your hands as well!

    Recipe #58542

    This a simple to make and easy to use sugar scrub. You may have seen simmilar versions selling in chain stores that are expensive. However, this is simple to make and easy to make variations of. Its good for exfoliating any part of your body and seems to work well on my sensitive skin. It makes my skin soft without having to spend a lot which is important when you are a broke student! I hope you enjoy! This originally callled for one cup olive oil, but i have since changed it to 1/2 cup to reflect the reccomendations of others.

    This gel will work well for men or women. It soothes skin after you've finished shaving. It's one of those great, simple recipes that will replace what you buy at the store. It's alcohol free, so it's great for even sensitive skin.
