10 Essential Home Remedies You Need To Know About

The following natural remedies are extremely beneficial and can only help your body function organically, as it should. These are remedies you might want to have in your house.

1.Carrot sticks and apples for whiter teeth 

Apples, cauliflower, celery and carrots work to whiten because they function as an abrasive scrub for teeth. These foods are nature’s toothbrush. They also stimulate the production of saliva, which helps keep plaque from forming. Stain sticks to plaque.

2.Lavender essential oil for stress relief

The soothing properties of lavender have been known since ancient times. When feeling anxious or overwhelmed, try some aromatherapy with lavender essential oil. This oil is also great for a soothing, stress-busting massage.

3.Cardamom for freshening breath

There is a reason for the Indian tradition of offering a bowl of cardamom seeds to guests to follow their meals. These antioxidant-packed little seeds, with their strong, refreshing flavor, can cleanse your palate and leave your mouth tasting great.

4.Yogurt to fight bad breath

Another fresh breath trick: plain, organic yogurt. The live bacteria cultures in the yogurt help neutralize the odor-causing bacteria in your mouth.

5.Witch hazel for cuts, scrapes and blisters

Pour a liberal amount ofwitch hazel over the cut or sore and allow it to dry. Add a bandage and you’re set. You can also use witch hazel on bruises or skin that is blistered or cracked.

Works just as well as rubbing alcohol, but is less drying on the skin.

6.Ginger for digestion

Ginger’s ability to settle the stomach is no old wive’s tale. This powerful rhizome is your first line of defense against upset stomachs and nausea.

7.Olives to help prevent motion sickness

For your next road trip, don’t forget to pack a jar of olives. The tannins that they contain can help to dissipate the first signs of nausea by drying your mouth. However, this remedy may not work if you are already ill; eat a couple olives at the first sign of motion sickness to help prevent worsening.

8.Prune juice to ease constipation

Treating constipation may require changes to your diet, including some prunes or prune juice can also help but it should be combined with other lifestyle changes.

9.Raw honey for disinfecting wounds

For minor wounds, raw honey can’t be beat. It has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties to clean the wound, and also provides moisture and seals it in.

10.Onion for insect bites

To get rid of the itch of a bug bite, slice an onion in half and rub the juice right on the bite. The sulfur compounds contained in the onion work to neutralize the itch.

5 Herbal Remedies For Natural Pain Relief

With all the body changes we are currently undergoing, it is quite difficult to avoid the uncomfortable part of it, which is the body pains, migraines and other uncomfortable ” ascension symptoms “.

Many of these uncomfortable symptoms can be a result of dehydration, which is why it is important for us to make sure we are well hydrated at all times. If the symptoms continue, here are a few natural herbal remedies that you can use to relief pain:

1. Feverfew – This herb is perfect to treat fever, migraines, irregular menstrual periods, arthritis, a skin disorder called psioriasis, allergies, asthma and also nausea. It can also be applied directly to the gums for toothaches or to the skin to kill germs.

2. Ginger – It is one of the best most effective natural remedies you can use for muscle pain, joint pain, chest pain, low back pain and also pain that comes from bronchitis, cough, arthritis and menstrual pain.  It has numerous therapeutic properties such as antioxidant effects and anti-inflammatory effects. It is also used to treat stomach issues such as motion sickness, morning sickness, colic, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea and nausea.

3. Tumeric – It is used to treat heartburns and arthritis as well as stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomachbloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders. People also use turmeric directly on the skin for pain, ringworm, bruising, leech bites, eye infections, inflammatory skin conditions, soreness inside of the mouth and infected wounds.

4. Capsaicin – With all the heart activations, expansions and upgrades and solar flares we’ve been experiencing lately, capsaicin ( also called the chilli pepper) is the perfect herb to have in your house as it is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels including poor circulation, excessive blood clotting, high cholesterol and preventing heart disease. Other uses of the chilli pepper are relief of toothache, seasickness, alcoholism, malaria and fever. It is also used to help people who have difficulty swallowing. Some people put capsicum inside the nose to treat hay fever, migraine, headache, cluster headache, and sinus infections (sinusitis).

5. Devil’s Claw – This herb contains chemicals that might decrease inflammation and swelling and resulting pain. That’s why it is used for hardening of the arteries, gout, muscle pain, back pain, tendonitis, chest pain, gastrointestinal (GI) upset or heart burn, fever and headache. It is also used for difficulties in childbirth, menstrual problems, allergic reactions and loss of appetite. 

Sometimes when your body has pains, it could be that it is trying to bring something into your awareness, it is trying to show you the areas that need to be nurtured more and paid attention to. Most diseases come from an energy level, a more subtle level, so if you pay attention to the signs your body is showing you, you can transform the energy and heal yourself before it manifests as a disease in your physical body.

However, at the same time, these intense waves of light that are incoming and that we’re integrating within our beingness can be quite hard on the body, so at times all you can do is just find ways to soothe the pains until it passes, which is why I wanted to write about modalities to relief pain. Use your own intuition/guidance system/heart feeling to discern what is the reason behind your pain.

There are many more ways to relief the pain, which I am going to write about in the next few articles, so stay tuned!
