that is why we were commanded by God not to eat them (pigs).


who's we?

A former pastor's wife taught me a trick for headaches... sniff vinegar. Not snort or anything, but just smell it. It does help mild headaches. Something about the acids in it being similar to the ones in aspirin


Why not just swallow an aspirin?

Bronner's Soap

Postby Martha » June 7th, 2008, 1:59 pm

[quote="EagerBeaver"]The best home remedies are the sayings found on Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Soap!

Have you ever used Bronner's soap? It's very good. You can use it as soap, shampoo, hand washing clothes, and it smells good too! I have very sensitive skin and it's the only soap I will use on my face. It's great for traveling. Only one bottle for everything. Of course the label is really weird. It's very hard to follow what it says and makes very little sense to me. I just like the product.

Eating a can of SPAM (prepared anyway you wish), will cure hunger for the time previous to and just subsequent to having eaten the wonderful, tasty, delicious, processed meat.

Being born in the south I can remember many old home remedies that were used by my Mamaw and Papaw ... and some my mother still uses.

Over-due baby - a dose of castor oil will bring on labor.

Belly ache - a spoonful of turpentine and sugar.

Speck in eye - drop a flax ( flac ) seed in the eye, it will run the speck.

Wart - rub wart with three straws from a broom, it will soon be gone.

Nose bleed - Pound a piece of lead thin, wear around neck on string.

Bee sting - cover with a wad of chewed tabacca.

Wart - Cut a small hickory branch, cut notches for number of seeds in wart, bury it under the side of house with leak, when the branch rots, the wart will be gone. ( mountain magic practiced by my Grandparents on my mothers side of the family)

I've done, successfully, the ones in bold.
