A lot of you may have felt that your mom always had the solution to every bit of pain we suffered when we were younger,

I now have children of my own as I’ve gotten older I look to those exact home cures instead of rushing to buy expensive pharmaceutical products.

Aches and pains can be relived using what we have lying around our kitchen cabinets which may come as a surprise to many of you.

 I was thinking about a couple of tried and tested home remedies I have picked up over the years and made a list which won’t require much of your time or effort.

Some of you may have already come across them already but for many of you, it may come as new found information or knowledge.

Once you’ve read the following list you may want to press the share button so that your friends can also use these smart tips!

Relieve for Sunburn

It is important to be careful and cover up when out in the sun because sunburn can not only lead to skin cancer it can also be very painful.

If your skin does get burnt there is a natural cure that at least relieves the pain, all you have to do is get some black tea from the kitchen!

Brew a pot of strong tea and let it cool, then soak a towel and place it over the affected area.

The tannic acid and theobromine in the black tea will remove heat from sunburn while other compounds called catechins found in the tea will help repair the skin.

Insect Bites

Getting bitten or stung by a pesky mosquito is another issue during the summer months.

It’s no laughing matter when the itching drives us all crazy you can use baking soda to relieve.

Mix with water to form a paste and apply it on the bite and it will help relieve itching.

Other home remedies that can relieve itchy bites include tea tree oil or an onion!

Soothe a sore throat.

Sick of buying expensive medicine for your sore throat? Forget it!

Just use apple cider vinegar, a little miracle fluid that has been used to relieve ailments and fight the disease for centuries.

Mix 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with 3 tablespoons of water, gargle with the natural remedy for a couple of times per hour to get the maximum effect.

The vinegar helps kill bacteria that is causing your sore throat.

Fight off fatigue!

Most of us think of a big cup of coffee to help keep us alert, a better cure is fresh mint leaves.

The smell of mint is a well-known aromatherapy oil helps fight drowsiness, a great way to start your day.

You can also eat the green leaves that are rich in vitamin C and E, folic acid, calcium and iron.

Heal Wounds.

Honey has many positive properties including its healing power because it contains a specific lactic acid bacteria.

Some researchers even claim that it can also serve as an antibiotic,  honey is a known remedy for healing wounds.

 It’s best to use wild honey because which is considered extra rich in these healthy bacteria.

Tackle Warts.


It may seem strange, but duct tape can actually clear warts because the tape sticks to warts and causes them to die.

Place a piece over your wart for about six days, remove the tape, wipe and remove the dead skin.

Repeat until you have stripped away the wart completely – simple and clever!

Foot Soak

After you spend all day on your feet most of us crave a nice long soak in a foot bath.

The next time you feel the urge don’t forget to add one cup of mouthwash.

This helps to keep your feet healthy thanks to the antibacterial properties of the mouthwash. Your feet will thank you for it.
