The ultimate list of my favourite & most effective natural remedies.

1st February, 2022
Growing up in small town, in a family full of wonder women who believed in natural ways and home remedies, which in fact worked better than any medications the GP was ready to stuff me with - natural medicine with a kick of positive mindset is all you need! The power of herbs and mother's earth growths is underestimated! Below I've wrapped up a list of must-try natural home remedies!
My absolute number one miracle cure for nappy rash - in other words natural and organic baby powder. Nothing else has ever worked for us this effectively and fast. Wash the affected area with a wet cloth. Dry it. Apply the starch and put nappy on as normal. Watch the redness reduce dramatically within the next few hours. Potato starch is made by grinding and drying, you guessed it right! Potatoes. It contains vitamins, minerals, potassium, anti-inflammatory and antioxidants and absorbs all moisture.

The stingy leaf that burns badly when you accidentally tread into it. Believe it or not, I've managed to completely get rid of not only my daughter's hay fever but also mine - that I have struggled with for years. Works best in the form of juice but can also be consumed as a brew. Here you can read our previous post 'The power of nettle'...

Our little girl has suffered with colic in her very first month. The GP recommended a medication that never even soothed her the slightest bit. In no time, without any doubts I reached for my grandmother's good ol' fennel remedy. Fennel tea aids healthy digestion, treat bloating, gas or cramps.

Replace all cold medications with water. There is no better and quicker way to get rid of a nasty cold than drinking plenty of water and flushing it out of your system! Cold and flu symptoms like runny noses and sweating, which often accompanies fever, increase the amount of water your body loses - therefore it is important to stay hydrated. It helps thin the mucus in your nasal passages, pushing the fluids out of your nose and decreasing the pressure in your sinuses. Less pressure means less inflammation and irritation. It also keeps you hydrated and flushes out the bad stuff.
Works wonders as a cough syrup. A teaspoon at night before bedtime to sooth your throat or first thing in the morning. Can also be mixed with warm water or milk. Honey has bactericidal properties and research has proven that it reduces the intensity of cough by more than fifty per cent.

Coconut oil hydrates and soothes irritated skin, it helps to reduce redness and provides a protective barrier, helping shield skin from environmental toxins, dirt and other icky stuff you’re faced with everyday. I add a spoonful to your daily bath...

Aloe Vera is a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins that help to protect, soothe and treat your skin. Aloe Vera is often used in our household for variety of problems from skin irritations, skin burns to rashes, cuts and more. Just cut the leaf of the plant and squeeze some gel out on required area, then apply plaster or bandage to prevent rubbing it off.
