16 Hilarious Home Remedies

16 Hilarious Home Remedies

Severe Sunburn

Mix together a combination of yellow mustard and, wait for it, vagisil. Could possibly be the most hilarious remedy that I found. Next sunburn, you know what I’m doing…

Warts

Cover them with duct tape. Change out the duct tape every couple of days. I’ve actually heard of this working because you are depriving the wart of oxygen, thereby killing the virus.

Hiccups

We have all heard our grandmothers telling us to eat a spoonful of sugar to get rid of the hiccups. But there is some truth behind such a tale. To rid yourself of hiccups, you have to distract the vagus nerve. Downing a spoonful of sugar overloads the nerve endings in the hopes of distracting and ending that reflex.

Nausea/Notion Sickness

Suck a lemon. Although you may make a terrible face, lemon juice actually helps to evaporate excessive saliva that is associated with feeling nauseous, and may help to settle your stomach.

Stuttering Child

(Prepare yourself, this is bad.) A technique used in ancient Chinese practice to stop a child from stuttering was to smack him/her in the face multiple times on a cloudy day.

Body Odor

Try Milk of Magnesia as a natural body deodorant.

Yeast Infection

Yes, we have heard that we should increase our oral intake of plain yogurt to add some healthy normal flora to our bodies. But I read reports claiming that just as effective as Monistat is actually inserting a tablespoon of plain yogurt, um, down there. I will never look at yogurt the same.

    I don't know about all the rest, but the ear candle and olive oil worked wonders for me as a child who was always having earaches. My immigrant Italian grandmother would make the ear candle, administer it to me and immediately, I felt better. Then she'd put a drop of olive oil in the canal followed by a cotton ball plug. Worked every time. I've been a nurse for 41 years and I still see it as a wonder, as long as the admistrator is careful. Yes...I am a BSN...but I know what I know...

    MY grandmother used the candle in the ear trip on me when I was a child. I was prone to ear infections so I got many a candle therapy...and it was the only thing that took away the pain. Then she'd put a drop or two of warm olive oil in my ear and capped it with a cotton ball. I thought my grandmother was a natural born healer. When I would sprain one of my limbs, she'd rub salt and olive oil over the area then wrap it with a clean white rag. This worked, too. There is something to be said for some of the old ways.
