    Here are some natural remedies that a blog suggested. Whether they work or not has not been scientifically proven, but it doesn’t hurt to try them.

    1. Cayenne Pepper:  It is actually a blood coagulant because it is rich in Vitamin K! So if you cut yourself while playing Top Chef at dinnertime, sprinkle some on. It will burn, but it will stop bleeding long enough to continue your dinner show.

    2. Clove Oil: The FDA has endorsed this as a remedy for tooth pain. It has antibiotic and antiseptic properties that prevent infection. And anyone who has had a dry socket knows, it is a powerful analgesic that stops intense pain on contact—if you can handle the taste. Four out of four dentists agree!

    3. Ginger: Wildly known to help nausea. It stimulates saliva and digestive activity to help calm the digestive tract. How many times did Mom give you ginger ale for your tummy aches? I always crave it on airplanes to soothe motion sickness.

    4. Garlic: Italians can tell you, it’s the cure for everything, from sauce to ear infections. Once known as the Poor Man’s Penicillan, garlic has antiviral, antibiotic and antifungal properties. Meaning? It can cure anything! Or at least it gives the immune system a boost. It helps with ear infections and upper respiratory infections too.

    5. Oregano: The pizza herb! Essential oil of oregano in a vaporizer can reduce phlegm and break up coughs and congestion. No oil? Boil dried oregano in a quart of water and have an DIY vaporizer in the kitchen. It contains thymol, also found in thyme, which helps with colds and upper respiratory.

    6. Parsley: This green flower on the side of your plate is not just a pretty decoration; it also moonlights as a diuretic. It can help produce urine to treat bladder and kidney infections and also reduce bloating during menstruation.

    7. Sage: Going through “the change?” The tannins in sage dry up perspiration, alleviating the discomfort of night sweats during menopause.

    8. Rosemary: The volatile oil eucalyptol, relaxes muscles in the lungs and helps to loosen constricted airways; a great treatment for asthma. Also relaxes nerves, headaches and muscle spasms. And, is the founder (if not a client) of the hair-club for men. That’s right, it is a great stimulant for hair growth and found in many shampoos and conditioners!

    9. Thyme: The first notable property that is able to increase blood flow to the skin creating a warm comforting feeling in the body. It also relaxes muscles in the respiratory tract and can be used as a gargle for sore throats. Finally, it can be used as an antiseptic to wash wounds.

    10. Dill: Derived from the Old Norse word, dilla, meaning to soothe, its main properties help digestion and calm heartburn and gas. Works great for a colicky baby!

    11. Cinnamon: This fragrant spice can be a great tonic for your whole system. A hot drink with cinnamon can help with colds and other infections and also promotes the digestive system. It relieves nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, and diarrehea. And it’s not chalky tasting or Pepto-Bismol Pink! An extra plus, it also contains eugenol, the same analgesic in clove oil—it works great in liniments to numb pain!
