How’d you like my previous post about home remedies from the kitchen? I just love the idea that simple things that are typically found in the average kitchen can do so much more for us. I love natural remedies as an alternative to products that have chemicals, and of course, I love saving money by not having to pay for for medicines. I got so excited that I continued researching for more kitchen items that can help in other ways, and here’s what I found:

  1. Calcium rich foods. Dairy, almonds, broccoli, leafy greens, and sardines can help with relief of PMS symptoms. Definitely worth a try!
  2. Prunes. Everyone knows that prunes are good for relieving constipation, but I had to give them a shout-out here and point out that they are so much more gentle on your digestive system than OTC laxatives.
  3. Sugar. Who knew that sugar could get rid of hiccups? Dissolve a teaspoon of sugar under your tongue and make those hiccups stop.
  4. Lemon. Drink lemon juice to help get rid of sore throats and colds. Apply it to your skin to lighten dark spots, but be patient- it takes some time to see results.
  5. Apple cider vinegar. Because it has anti-inflammatory properties, it’s good to dab on bruises and burns. Also try it as a soak for smelly feet.
  6. Lavender. Besides it’s divine aroma, lavender eases tension and muscle spasms. Rub on some lavender lotion at bedtime to soothe and help you fall asleep.
  7. Dark chocolate. Reduces stress hormone levels. So treat yourself and relax!
  8. Turmeric. Eat it to boost your immune system and ease arthritis symptoms. Make a paste and apply it to minor cuts and burns as an antiseptic.
  9. Honey. A spoonful of honey can soothe a sore throat and calm a cough. Also apply it to minor wounds and canker sores.
  10. Banana. Mash it and apply to burns and sunburns for some relief. Apply banana peel to insect bites to relieve itching.
  11. Honeydew. Eating honeydew can do so many good things for your body. It relieves bloating and acts as a natural diuretic that also helps with electrolyte replacement. And it has potassium, which can help with muscle cramps.

Another thing I love about these home remedies is that these items are ready to use as-is. No measuring or mixing necessary. Add that to the fact that they’re all natural, and of course, pretty much free, and you’ve got a win-win situation here!
