Do you have any...

Do you have any natural or home remedies for anything?

A lot of you ladies may already know this, but I accidentally discovered that olive oil makes GREAT cuticle oil. In the wintertime, my hands andcuticles get so dry, and massaging a tiny bit of olive oil into my cuticles has completely helped just as much or better than the expensive oils you buy in the store for that single purpose. I love multi-purpose, (preferably natural) remedies, so if you have any, please share! :)

  • mixing garlic and olive oil into a paste and rub on your feet, cover with plastic baggie and socks....for colds and flu symptoms. Garlic is a natural antibiotic/antimicrobial and has an affinity for the lungs.
