Natural home remedies are a great way to deal with the common ailments that can affect any family. And the popularity of such remedies is growing, too.
I have a hunch that the reasons for this are the same as those that cause me to prefer natural home remedies if at all possible.
First of all, I like to take a more natural route to help my family. I want to avoid the side-effects and toxic build up that result from so many over-the-counter drugs and prescriptions. So, if I'm aware of a natural alternative, I want to try it.
Also, I like the simplicity and cost savings that can come from taking care of what you can at home. If you are busy like I am (and especially if you have responsibility for the well-being of a family), you know that you hardly have the time to be jumping in the car to visit the doctor or pick up some ointment or prescription every time that there's a body in need of mending.
Natural remedies that you can apply at home provide an excellent alternative in this regard. Good ones enable you to handle a variety of ailments quickly and effectively.
There are many kinds of natural remedies available. These remedies often involve the use of different foods or herbs. Combining garlic and honey, for example, is a well-known remedy for a cough. And eating an apple is known to help with constipation.
I've tried many of these kinds of common remedies – and still use them now and then – but by far my most common natural remedy involves my essential oils. That's where I turn first with just about any health issue that comes up.
Therapeutic grade essential oils come in many varieties and blends, and have the ability to address a wide variety of health concerns.
We have a lot of experience using essential oils as natural home remedies, and continue to be amazed by their effectiveness.
Below are just some of the different ailments that have been cared for with essential oils with good success. . .
