    I was a skeptic when I first saw this cure on the internet. But I had several embarrassing warts on my fingers and was ready to try anything. Let me tell you this really works!! None of mine have come back and I did this months ago. The "recipe" stated apple cider vinegar so I'm not sure if white vinegar will work. Zaar didn't recognize Q-tip or Band-aid when I was submitting so use them instead of cotton balls and tape. *edit* - I thought I should add that once the vinegar gets inside the wart it may start to sting a little, but it is well worth it.

    Recipe #298036

    From my parents and granparents (add a generation for a lot of readers!) but this is a "warmer upper" when you get inside from the cold of fall/winter/spring activities... Brandy, rye or rum can be substituted for cognac, according to what you have on hand...

    Recipe #192978

    These herbs are known for helping relax and make you sleepy. Drink this before bedtime and get a good nights sleep! The original recipe calls for 1 1/2 oz Vervain leaves, but Zaar won't let vervain go through so I have modified it. Please feel free to use the vervain, it is good for nervousness, will tone up the system, good for stomach troubles. Adapted from Herbal Teas. This may be put in a jar with directions and given as a gift too, perhaps with some bath crystals and a good book! You may also use valerian instead or with the vervain. Look in your health food stores for these teas.

    This recipe is from the book "Herbal Teas". It is supposed to be good for colds, but it has a nice flavor for everyday use too. Echinancea is useful for fighting off colds and flu, especially at the onset of symptoms. Catnip eases symptoms of colds, flus and bronchitis and is very calming and relaxing. Yarrow is useful for the onset of colds anf flu and can cause heat flushing, which is good for breaking a fever. Lemon balm contains antiviral components, good for fighting colds and flu. Barb Fahs, the creator of this tea recommends decocting it to make the tea stronger and have more visible results, but I usually will just brew it. I have included instructions for either method. Time is for the decoction process. The recipe can also easily be reducted or increased, just keep the proportions the same.

    My friend Wendy gave me this recipe a few years ago when I was sick. Try it, it really works! Warning: I think I should probably prepare you up front, the heat of the cayenne and the strength of the garlic can kind of burn going down!

    Recipe #200597

    This is a cough syrup you can make and take all you want. My mother made this for me as a child and I did the same for my two kids and grandchildren. It tastes good and is all natural. It does help the tickle. The vinegar cuts the molasses and the butter makes it smooth.

    Recipe #203387

    These 3 combos are more informational than they are real recipes, but I still could not resist sharing them w/you. I got them from Raymond L, a friend & ex-boss from my Dallas days. The final words of his E-mail were "If you share these w/10 people & only 1 of them does not know about them, then it was worth the effort." Sharing them here w/all of you certainly increases the probabilities his comment will be true. :-) (Times do not include time for mixtures to sit or cool)

    You got the sniffles or upset belly, don't reach for a glass of orange juice or that fizzy stuff. That is good, but try pineapple juice instead. It has vitamin C like its orange cousin, but it also has bromelain. Studies have found it is effective in treating upper respiratory conditions and acute sinusitis. The next time you get a cold, make this recipe!contain little or no fat or cholesterol, and provide significant amounts of fiber, digestive enzymes, vitamin C, calcium, and potassium.

    Recipe #159274

    Just like the name says- this is my home remedy for the "Mama, I don't feel so good" blues. Try it for yourself. What have you got to lose? oh ya... you can lose the stuffy nose, scratchy throat, coughing your head off crud! Feel better soon!

    Recipe #157183

    Coming down with a cold? A friend just gave me this recipe and she swears by it. You have to decide if smelling like a pickle is worth feeling better.

    Recipe #140350

    In Mexico, or Spain for that matter, garlic tea is served up for coughs or colds. People swear by it! The garlic oils inhibit cough and cold microbes, and they are effective decongestants. Lemon juice reduces and thins mucus, which makes it easier to unclog a stuffed up respiratory system. Lemon juice also changes the body's pH, making it less hospitable to viruses and bacteria. Adapted from Prevention magazine.

    Recipe #139436

    Here it is... I promised I'd post it. My grandmother's sure-fire mix to fix that tickley cough in the back of your throat or that deep wheezy cough that rattles and hurts. Don't worry about the gettin drunk part; you won't be using that much because this is good. Keep in mind these measurements are VERY approximate. HOWEVER, do keep the ratio's kinda the same.

    Honey used before a workout increases the physical stamina & energy level of the human body since honey is easily absorbed in the blood. Honey used after a work out removes tiredness and fatigue almost instantly. Honey is primarily fructose and glucose so it is quickly absorbed by the digestive system. (Do like the Ancient Greek athletes who took honey for stamina before competing and as a reviver after competition.)

    We frequently boil this during the cold and flu season. We use it more as a prevention than a cure, but it can help to keep germs down and lessens the possibility of making other family members sick. It also smells great so it isn't a problem to keep it brewing. I put zero cook time because it isn't a set time and is up to the person how long they want it to brew.

    Recipe #75747

    As the title suggests this is an easy remedy for those all round ills that seem to strike when we least need them! This has worked very well for our family this year and I hope it will for you. :) You can also add the juice of a lemon and even the skin chopped as well if you like for added vit C. I do sometimes :)

    Recipe #76526

    I got this recipe from a couple of different ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctors. But was told years later, by still another ENT doctor, that the Vodka was not neccessary. I have used this for over 30 years now. After the kids had grown and moved out, I found out the one of my daughters had been drinking my Vodka and refilling the bottle with water. Good thing I didn't really need it. LOL (good thing for her, she wasn't caught)

    Recipe #84952

    This is an antiseptic spray to use on small cuts and scrapes or to spray on dirty hands when you can't get to a sink. Can also be used as an air freshener. Please use only 100% pure essential oils. This is from the AromaThyme website.

    Recipe #85506

    This stuff will make you feel and breathe better when your not feeling your best due to colds, allergies, and/or bath.

    Recipe #94043

    This is the second easiest remedy to combat pimples that I've come across. The first, is real simple...my Paternal Grandmom taught me that when you have a nasty pimple show up on your pretty doll face, just dab some of your own saliva (the one that's in your mouth after you wake up from a long beauty sleep in the morning and BEFORE brushing your teeth and guargling with mouthwash) onto the pimple. Dont scrub or anything, just apply it gently and leave it for a few minutes and then rinse under cool tap water. BELIEVE IT OR NOT but this works like a charm! She used to call it the "Poor Man's Remedy"! And, so does this sea cure from the book "Ooh la la! Perfect face by Susie Galvez. Try it and be pimple-free!

    Recipe #108024

    Do you have sinus congestion with clogged ears? Well this is for you, very simple. This recipe was given to me by several nurses I work with; it's the same advice they give to our patients (pediatric through adult) and so they gave the same advice to me when I had these symptoms and let me tell you, it works wonders.
