Old Fashioned Remedies

By Bev Sandlin


Since my back was hurting and I didn’t want to do anything, I was wondering the Net on Stumbleupon and ran across this site: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/2QMyVn/www.liferesearchuniversal.com/grannymain.html/  that I think will interest you as much as it did me!


Grandma’s Attic is a site dedicated to old fashioned remedies, and you can even add yours!


Examples are:

“4 X 4 for Colds : 4 tablespoons lemon juice, 4 tablespoons brandy, 4 tablespoons unpasteurized honey, 4 tablespoons glycerine.
This drink can be served hot or cold. Drink up, bundle up and go to bed.

Nice White Teeth: After squeezing the juice of a lemon, use the left over rind to rub on your teeth and gums to whiten and strengthen them. This is also a good skin cleanser and softener; simply rub the rind over the facial areas desired, let stand for 5 minutes and rinse with tepid water. Eating an apple with the skin has the same effect of disinfecting the tooth and massages the gum.

For migraines: my mother would slice raw potatoes on a white piece of cotton, sprinkle it with pepper and apply to the forehead for an hour or more. It works great.

For arthritis: boil some cabbage leaves, cool lightly, apply the warm leaves to hands or joints wrap with towel.

Healing Salve: 1 cup comfrey root oil, 1 cup calendula oil, 2oz beeswax, 2 tbsp. Vitamin E oil, 20 drops Vitamin A emulsion.
Grate the beeswax. Heat the oils together, and add the beeswax. When the beeswax is melted, add Vitamins E & A. Pour into salve containers and ley stand to harden.

Take a look around on this site and let me know what you think!
