  • I always have a neti pot and stuff to make saline, arnica for bruises and scrapes, nux vomica for stomach issues, chamomile for soothing, Bach Rescue remedy for calming, and echnichea in case we have known exposure. I also give my kids Vit C, ,Vit D, and a multi vitamin daily.

  • Arnica for bruises and muscle aches
    Calms Forte for when I have an anxiety attack, esp. at night
    Honey for minor cuts and burns
    Cider vinegar for skin toning and cutting the residue from hair products in my hair.
    aspirin - crushed and mixed w/ honey makes a good mask for acne-prone skin.

  • I don't rely on natural medicines and remedies, but I've, always, been relatively healthy.  I attribute it to the fact that I've, always, been a compulsive hand washer.
