    This is great for injuries and keeping beverages cool.

    Recipe #91931

    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.

    Recipe #136537

    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??)

    Recipe #106056

    This was gotten off a botanical website and submitted by a girl named Deborah. She says this cured her little girl's strep throat when no antibiotics would. I love honeysuckle and it grows profusely here along roadside fences. You can mix flowers and leaves in proportion you like.

    Recipe #117217

    No-not the candy-it's a life saver for my family! My oldest daughter developed a horrible hacking cough when she was 4. This cough would knock her on her little butt for a week at a time, at least twice every winter. The Dr. kept telling us it was "post nasal drip" and tell us we could do nothing but use over the counter syrup for it. "It will have to run it's course." Well, nothing we tried worked. NOTHING. So I went in search of a remedy, and I found this miracle. We all use it, and it's the best thing ever for for us! JUST BE SURE NOT TO GIVE THIS TO ANY KIDS UNDER 1 YEAR OLD, BECAUSE OF THE HONEY!!! But I give it to all my kids. I give my 2-1/2 yr old about 1 tsp, and my 5 yr old gets about 1-1/2 tsp. My 6 year old usually gets about 2 or 2-1/2 tsp. with great results. KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS SYRUP IS AN EXPECTORANT, SO IT WILL MAKE YOU COUGH FOR A SHORT TIME AFTER TAKING IT. BUT SOON AFTER, YOU'LL STOP COUGHING, AND FEEL SO MUCH BETTER.

    Recipe #35929

    I don't remember where this came from, we have been using it for so long. But my family and friends have had great success using this. My sons tonsils were soo swollen that he could not swallow his own saliva, had to go to er to get IV from dehydration, and dr. said that his tonsils needed to come out. He constantly had sore throats. Well he still has his tonsils, and is not bothered by sore throats anymore. This mixture is suppose to kill 99% of bacteria.

    Recipe #172184

    My maid here in Mumbai is 65 and a genius with kitchen handy hints and tips to cure common problems like cough, cold, pains and aches, etc. We were having a discussion over tea and breakfast this morning when she mentioned this as one of the easiest, least expensive home remedies to treat a sore throat. My Mom who is not feeling too well, tried this on her sore throat and got alot of relief from it. That got me all geared up to post this one :-)

    Recipe #120862

    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.

    Looking for a natural NeoCitran substitute? Or a hot lemony drink when you're not feeling so well? This has all the goodness of the store brand without the powdery, chemical taste.

    This natural method dries out the rash very quickly. Hope you have a quick recovery! I have to give this credit to Nancy a client of mine. She uses it and swears by it. Make sure you wash clothes and shoes as soon as possible. To relieve itchy skin whatever it may be, give it a try.

    Recipe #110125

    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.

    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.
