5 Simple Home Remedies That Really Work

Fall is here, and with it comes the usual season of colds and flus. Many of us are searching for more natural ways to treat sickness when it arises, and the good news is that you don’t have to be a herbalist, naturopath or health kook to use home remedies that really work.

There are many home remedies out there that are difficult to make, full of expensive and exotic ingredients, or that have questionable results or even safety concerns. Happily, there are also many that consist of one or two simple and readily available ingredients, can be put together in minutes, and work safely and effectively.

These are tried and true recipes and remedies from our own family, and among my first forays into the world of herbal healing. Safe, simple, effective. What more could a mama want?

1) Eucalyptus for Congestion

Bye-bye Vicks vaporub, hello eucalyptus oil!

Eucalyptus oil has many uses in the herbal first aid kit, but it is most famous for bringing relief to sinus and chest congestion. It is known to break down phlegm, ease labored breathing and bring relief to clogged nasal passages.

There are two very quick and easy ways to use it:

Homemade Chest Rub

1-2 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
1-2 tsp. carrier oil of choice

Eucalyptus (and most other essential oils) are too strong to use directly on the body at full strength, so they need to be used together with a carrier oil. Carrier oils can include olive oil, jojoba oil, almond oil and many others.

My oldest daughter often complains of a stuffed up nose when she lies down at night (even when she isn’t sick). Though we’re experimenting with the Neti Pot for a long term solution, my nightly 30-second remedy looks like this:

  1. Pour approximately 1 tsp of almond oil into the palm of my hand.
  2. Add 1 drop of eucalyptus oil into the almond oil.
  3. Using my fingers, I mix the two oils together then rub them on my hands.
  4. Rub my oiled hands on her chest, neck and a bit just under her nose (then rub any extra into my skin or on my own neck/chest, because it won’t hurt and it smells lovely).

Steam Treatment

Another excellent way to combat congestion is through the use of steam. This can be done by filling a sink or pot with hot or even boiling water and inhaling the vapors, by using a humidifier to add moisture to a room, or even by taking a very hot shower or simply closing the door and letting the bathroom fill  up with steam.

For an adult, leaning over a steamy pot or sink is probably the best solution. For an infant or young child, turning your bathroom into a temporary sauna by closing the door and running the hot shower into the tub (with the plug in) is much easier.

Simply add several drops of the eucalyptus oil (usually 3-5 is good, depending on the size and preference of the person) and steam away. Many people will also add a few drops to a humidifier for overnight treatment, but you will want to read your manual carefully to ensure that this won’t damage your machine.

2) Garlic for Immune Boosting

If you can stand a little garlic breath (and you can convince your hubby to join you in the immune-boosting fun), you will find that the humble garlic clove packs a powerful punch.

Whenever anyone in our family begins to feel the first hints of sickness, I pull out the garlic press. Garlic is a favorite of mine for it’s strong anti-viral, anti-bacterial and and anti-fungal qualities.

These qualities are best preserved when garlic is eaten raw (because the active components in garlic, like allicin and sulphur compounds, are volatile and heat-sensitive and therefore most of the benefit is lost when garlic is cooked). If you can get it down, however, it will greatly enhance the body’s fighting ability, sometimes preventing illness entirely and other times helping to shorten the duration and/or intensity of sickness.

How to eat raw garlic:

  • Make garlic toast. Toast a piece of bread, butter it, then crush 1-3 cloves of garlic (depending how brave you are!) and spread it over the toast. A piece of cheese on top will help for those who find it difficult to eat.
  • Garlic and honey. For my children, I crush a clove onto a teaspoon, then I drizzle raw honey quite generously over the garlic. They just take it like that, followed by a swig of water. It tastes primarily like sweet honey, with a bit of a kick. It can’t be that bad, because they ask for it when they’re not really sick.
  • Swallow cloves whole (or cut in chunks). If you just can’t handle the taste, you could get it over with quickly.
  • Hide it in delicious food. Guacamole and hummus are both excellent places to disguise lots of raw garlic!

3) Peppermint for Indigestion

Do you ever experience sluggish digestion after a heavy meal, or struggle with gas, bloating, or heartburn? You may be surprised by how handily peppermint can remedy that indigestion!

Out for dinner during a blog conference in July, I had been indulging in too many foods that I don’t regularly eat. By the time I hit the Mexican restaurant that night, my tummy was in revolt. Thankfully, I discovered over the course of the meal that I was sitting beside a herbalist who carried essential oils with her at all times.

I immediately asked if she had any peppermint oil, and lo and behold, she did. A few drops into my glass of lukewarm water, and within 15-20 minutes I was already feeling so much better!

Peppermint is a boon for those who need a little digestive help after meals, as it has a soothing and calming effective on the digestive system. I pull it out whenever something doesn’t sit right with me, and have begun to do the same for my husband and children as well, who all attest to the fact that it really does work.

Peppermint Oil After-Dinner Drink

1-3 drops into a large glass of lukewarm or cool (but preferably not cold) water. Sip on this slowly but steadily until finished or until you feel better.

For children, stick with one drop as it may be too strong otherwise. Remember that essential oils are very concentrated and it only takes a little bit.

Peppermint Tea

Another simple option is to sip on a warm peppermint tea. Choose a loose leaf tea or a full-leaf tea (made with genuine, dried mint leaves, not mint “flavor”) like Might Leaf, Numi, Yogi, Traditional Medicinals, etc.

4) Aloe for Burns

Aloe has natural antiseptic properties, as well as being very soothing and cooling. Together with its easily available form, this makes aloe a perfect choice for helping to heal and soothe burns, sunburns, blisters, insect bites or stings, cuts and scrapes, etc.

You can buy aloe as a gel, but you will want to make sure that you find one that actually contains pure aloe. Many products that claim to have aloe in them are actually made up of many not-so-desirable ingredients, with the aloe as an add-in that happens to make for nice advertising claims, but you won’t find it to be very effective.

Personally, I love having an aloe plant on my windowsill. Aloe is a very easy plant to grow, requiring little care. All it asks is a sunny spot, water once in a while, and maybe the occasional bit of fertilizing love. My kind of plant.

Using Aloe Plants

For a small burn or wound, I snip off about an inch of an aloe leaf. Then I use a knife to slit it open, up one side, and then pry it open so that both of the wet, inner pieces are easy to apply to the skin. Just rub the wet gel-like substance over the injured area and let it dry there.

For a larger area, you may want to open up an entire leaf, and scrape out the gel. A butter knife works well, or you can use a metal teaspoon as well. Scrape it into a small bowl, then you can rub it over the skin.

5) Onion for Colds

Last year, while fighting a bad head cold, I discovered the invaluable uses of the humble onion. Yes, it may make you weep while cooking dinner, but it will also help to ease the symptoms of a cold and make it go away faster.

In particular, it is the juice and fumes of the onion that offer much of its healing potential. The very things that bring us to tears are also powerful enough to let you sleep at night when you’re stuffed up, ease a sore throat, and drain sinus congestion, not to mention draw out toxins that contribute to sickness in the first place!

Our favorite ways to use onions:

  1. Homemade cough syrup. This recipe can be as simple as chopping 1 cup of onions, adding 1/2 cup of honey, and simmering the mixture for 20 minutes. Strain the onions out, and keep in the fridge, taking a spoonful as needed. This recipe is safe for children as well and our family found it particularly helpful for soothing coughs and clearing stuffed noses.
  2. Beside the bed. When freshly chopped, the fumes from the onion “juice” are very effective at clearing up congestion. Breathing them in through the night by placing a bowl of onion pieces beside the bed or even near your head (wrapped in thin cloth) can work wonders.

Through the month of October, I’ll be sharing Natural Remedies and Illness Prevention on my personal blog, Keeper of the Home. You can also find many ideas for natural health and healing here at Simple Organic, with more posts to come on these topics!

What are some of your favorite home remedies?

    I have never heard of these. I am all about natural ways to get better, so these are great! The onion one is very interesting, I will definitely remember that the next time I have a cold. Thanks!

    • mi

      the onion treatments work really well for children too young for medicines and a cheesecloth tied off securely keeps babies from choking on onion bits. Also have them have a little diluted onion juice/water to drink and/or to put on a warm poultice for a few minutes before bed time!

  2. Emily @ Live Renewed

    Thanks for this great post Stephanie! I’m hoping to really dive into natural healing remedies for this first time this winter/cold & flu season.
    I have a question about finding and buying essential oils – how do you know if an essential oil is high quality? Is it important to buy organic essential oils (they seem to be much more expensive!) and are there any special instructions for purchasing an oil that you will ingest – like the peppermint?
    I’m hoping to invest in some essential oils soon, and just want to make sure that I am getting the right, or the best kind, for these natural healing remedies.
    Thanks!

    • Stephanie

      Look for the words “essential oil” or “pure essential oil”, as opposed to words like aromatherapy oil, or fragrance oil. They should always be in dark colored glass bottles. Some signs of quality oils are a genuine variance in price (rather than each one being $5), as some oils are naturally more expensive than others (like jasmine, neroli, myrrh, etc.), as well as companies that share a lot of specific information about the oil (where it’s from, how it’s extracted and stored, etc.). A few reputable sites I know of include Mountain Rose Herbs and Bramble Berry, and other brands I have used are Nature’s Alchemy and Calia.
      Organic is always better, but I don’t feel that it’s essential, so long as I’m getting quality oils. For ones that we will be ingesting more than using topically, I would consider organic.

  3. Aimee @ Simple Bites

    Excellent post, Stephanie. The sniffles are starting around here and it’s nice to have something like this to refer to as I am clueless about most of this stuff.

    Thanks!

  4. Kara

    Who knew about onion, peppermint and eucalyptus! I will definitely be referring to this as the cold season comes on.

    • Stephanie

      I love all of the fun surprises I’ve had as I’ve begun to study herbs! So many commonplace herbs with amazing qualities and uses!

  5. Chhaya

    Excellent and very informative post…I have used eucalyptus oil and the onion / honey mixture for coughs….I have an aloe plant as well, though I have sadly ignored it for a while and probably needs a little TLC to thrive again ! looking forward to your next post on natural home remedies .

  6. Katie

    Can’t wait to put these tips to use – thanks for the great post, Stephanie!

  7. Beth

    Wow, I didn’t know about onions for colds. I’ll have to keep that in mind for this winter.

  8. Charis

    our family is a firm believer in the garlic cure-all! my naturalist introduced it to me 7 years ago during my 1st pregnancy that happened to be during the winter, and i have told every friend suffering from any ailment about it now ever since. we press a clove into a tablespoon of org. ev olive oil. she told me that the olive oil helps with the odor.

    our other favorite home remedy is apple cider vinegar with the mother. apple cider vinegar, raw garlic, hot and cold compresses, and nursing got me over mastitis last week completely naturally without antibiotics (and i was already to the point of fever and chills).

    another one i like is gargling cayenne pepper for a sore throat. i treated the beginnings of strep that way once and it really worked. just have to be careful when spitting it out to spit it out quickly to not burn the tongue.

    i am going to purchase some peppermint oil and eucalyptus oil for this winter, but just for other readers who are breastfeeding: peppermint can mess with milk production, so best to not use it while breastfeeding, especially if you are already having supply problems.

    great article! thanks!

    • Stephanie

      Wow, how brave are you to gargle cayenne! I’m sure that it works, though!

    • shelley

      I wasn’t aware that the peppermint can mess with milk production. That’s good to know! I’d hate to mess with my supply.

  9. Jessica @ This Blessed Life

    What a wonderful post! Thank you for sharing – I am definitely bookmarking it for later. 🙂

  10. Christine

    Love this post. However, my children HATE honey. I have been trying to give them honey for years now and they still have not acquired the taste for it. I have tried to “sneak” it into a yummy tea and such, but they always know. Any suggestions for a substitue?

    Also, NEVER underestimate the power of home-made chicken noodle soup !!! (or even just the broth, which my kids WILL drink). There’s something about it that just makes you feel so much better and helps to clear the mucus and sooth the throat. Thank God my children do like THIS!

    Love the swallow the garlic whole idea. Never thought of that. I’m going to definitely have the family try this one!

    • Sarah

      I posted below, but I was the same as a child and my grandma had a cough cold remedy she would use….dicing up a large onion or two and covering or sprinkling with a lot of brown sugar, you leave it over night and it makes a syrup. you disguard the onions( though I am sure it WOULD be good to eat them as well) and spoon out the syrup as needed. We loved it and it worked great for coating our sore throats

      • Christine

        Thank you so much for your reply!!! My daughter has a nasty cough right now, so I will definitely try this!

  11. Christine

    One other thing:

    I have been using Peppermint for a while now. Peppermint Tea (if you’re not nursing, that is) is a cure-all for us! It works wonders!! Organic Peppermint Tea is an instant soother for ANY kind of tummy trouble … even heartburn! Drink the tea quickly and your gut returns to normal within 30 minutes! I used to take Tums like they were candy … since I started drinking Peppermint Tea after meals, I have said goodbye to the TUMS permanently. I’ve got my kids drinking tea now too when they have an upset tummy. Not to mention that the warm liquid helps everything down there move better!

  12. Christina Livingston

    One more on the onion! If you take a white or sweet onion and chop it up then squeeze the juice out of it(this is kinda hard but worth it), it is a great soothing remedy for ear aches. Just drop a couple drops of the juice in your ear and lay on your side(so it stays in there) for about 5 to 10 minutes. I do this 2 or 3 times a day as needed and usually the ear ache is gone within a couple days!

  13. Rachel

    Do you think that the eucalyptus oil would work for my 4mo? He gets congested at night just like I do, but it is especially bad when he is teething. If this would help him (us) sleep better at night it is totally worth it and my just help us avoid the sore throat that comes with breathing through your mouth when sleeping!

  14. D =)

    Great article, Stephanie..thanks for reminding us to keep it simple! =)
    I love to learn through others’ experience, too…the cayenne-gargle sounds interesting, Charis! =)
    Two of my favorites are homemade chicken stock, which includes onions, garlic, carrots, parsley, celery, etc…all of which have wonderful qualities….and garlic oil for earaches/sorethroats.

  15. Darleen

    Christina,
    We (our family of 8) have found the onion juice in the ear to be so true – used for years!

  16. Beth

    In light of this discussion on natural remedies for cold/flu, is it appropriate to ask what are folks thoughts on the flu vaccine? I mave mixed feelings. My husband and I are both in high exposure groups with 2 young children at home.

    • Mama Eva

      IMHO – make an informed decision! Whether it is to get the vax or run screaming away, read into it!! Start at the package insert from the vax, then get Dr Sears’ book “The Vaccine Book” and research, research, research! Another good book is How to Raise a “Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor” by Robert S. Mendelsohn M.D. Then find a support group or people who think like you do/want to think and hang out with them 🙂

      Best wishes and Many Blessings to you and your family!

      • Jennifer S Jansky

        I believe the flu vaccine to be something that works against your body instead of with it. Research shows the Vitamin D is best at preventing and treating the flu and is totally safe. It even helps prevent cancer so who doesn’t want that? Plus when I have never had the flu and while treating my child for illness come to find out she had the flu…she didn’t even seem sick because I gave her garlic. For two weeks she had an on and off fever but seemed fine and as long as I kept up with the garlic she was great. I wasn’t too confident in my ability to administer natural remedies back then, so I took her to the doc anyway and he said she looked great. Lungs great, nose clear, ears great. She is fine. Go figure!

        There is a lot of information out there: http://www.naturalnews.com/029334_flu_vaccines_seizures.html

  17. Lisa

    I’ve tried all sorts of coughing syrups, believe me, but none of them helps. Even though Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa http://www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm does not eliminates the cough I like to stick to this chinese syrup I’ve been taking since I was a kid: Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa. My grandfather is chinese, so I guess my mom got the advice from him. I was really surprised when I found that chinese market selling it here in Belgium. It does have a refreshing, soothing, sweetening effect…as long as it lasts…then back to coughing mode.

  18. Allyson

    Stephanie, thanks so much for this post. We’re just beginning the cold season here and I’m sure I’ll be putting your ideas to good use. I love the idea for natural chest rub and cough syrup.

  19. Kait Palmer

    These are great! I’ll have to try the eucalyptus one!
    Although I have heard that using a Neti pot every day can flush out the good bacteria in your nose…anyone else heard this?

  20. Kara

    Hooray for natural healing! Thank you for sharing all the wonderful tips!

  21. Allyson

    Stephanie, would coconut oil work as the carrier oil in the chest rub?

  22. Marcy

    Just want to remind you or tell anyone who may know know: Don’t give HONEY to a child under one year. It could be very, very dangerous.

  23. Nicole aka Gidget

    this is awesome, Stephanie! My daughter just came down with a cough so I’m going to make the onion/honey cough syrup tomorrow!

  24. Leah

    Garlic in it’s pure form is amazing stuff. It kills bacteria that Rx antibiotics can’t touch. Unfortunately, much (if not all) of the store bought garlic today is irradiated and therefore rendered MUCH less effective than one may be hoping for. Grow it yourself, or buy it locally for best results!!

  25. Sandra Lee

    These are all excellent remedies, although rather potent ones! I would love to try aloe for burns. Thanks for the ideas.

  26. shelley

    This came at absolutley the right time! Both of my kids came down with a cough compliments of daycare. Anyway, after reading your blog out came the onions and we all slept with them by our heads. No lie, my son who’s cough was the worse is 95% better! Thank you thank you thank you!!! You’re such a blessing… keep the natural remedies coming.

    All the best,
    Shelley

  27. Mistee

    Thanks for the tips Stephanie. We find raw garlic much easier to eat (and very enjoyable) by lacto-fermenting it (recipe in Nourishing Traditions). The longer it sits (in the fridge after the first 3 days), the more mild (not hot), and “pickly” it gets. I figure it’s a good deal b/c then we are not only getting the benefits of garlic, but also friendly bacteria which is also so beneficial for the immune system.

  28. Heather H.

    I can’t say enough good things about Elderberry Extract. We are a family of 6, and none of us has been sick in 3 years. Elderberry kills bacteria, virus and fungi (including swine flu virus). We take it daily as a preventative.

    Elderberry extract Recipe:

    1/4 c of dry elderberries (these are so cheap to buy and very easy to grow!)
    3 cups pure water
    you can throw in a cinnamon stick, cloves or some grated ginger if you like
    boil water, throw in berries and simmer down for 30 minutes.
    Strain out berries and really squeeze them to get out all the juices.

    After mixture is totally cool mix in 1/4 cup or so of raw honey.

    drink 1 Tbsp morning and night as preventative.
    If you have cold or flu take 1 Tbsp every hour to speed healing.

    I’m telling you, this really works! I also recommend Elderberry tea, and they make awesome muffins.

  29. Heather H.

    Onion Poultices: mincing an onion and wrapping in cheese cloth, placing it on the ear (or other infected area) really draws out the infection. You feel the ear and face get hotter and hotter and thats how you know its working. It worked wonders for my abcessed tooth 5 years ago. Pulled the infection right out, between that and tea tree mouthwash i was healed quickly.

  30. Erika

    Great post … so informative! THANK YOU!!

    Quick question: How old does a child need to be to use the eucalyptus for congestion? I’m thinking in the humidifier it doesn’t matter as much??? But what about as a chest rub? Is it okay for a baby?

    Thanks again! I’ll be referring to this often, I’m sure!

  31. Sarah

    Great post!! I try to do some similar things, we make homemade caesar salad with raw garlic all the time, especially in the winter or when I have had a yeast infection. VERY effective. The other thing we always did growing up (as prescribed by my great grandma) was dicing or slicing an large onion and then sprinkling heavily with OG brown sugar. I am sure the honey is likely better for you, but for the times that you don’t HAVE time to make it, boil it etc. You just leave it for a few hours or preferably over night and it makes a syrup. As kids we loved it of course, and it was great for our sore throats.

  32. Elizabeth

    LOVE the post! I had read on your blog a little about the onions powers. SO, I told my mom about cutting an onion and putting it by the bed. My dad has a cough that doesn’t die. He’s ALWAYS coughing through the night. Last night she tried it, and would you believe that he didn’t have ONE coughing spell?!?! My mom said she got the best sleep in MONTHS – all because of your OH SO HELPFUL information. THANK YOU!

    ps My mom thought it was funny cause when she went to bed it smelled a little like pot roast! 🙂

    • Jennifer S Jansky

      That is cool. 🙂

  33. shay

    Raw Apple cider vinegar is another great natual “weapon” against coughs, congestions, nasal issues, etc. I like to add a teaspoon full to a cup of Gypsy Cold Care tea by Tradional Medicinals (I add a bit of honey to mask the taste but in hot tea its not that noticeable) or you can just take a spoonful with honey.

  34. Mama Eva

    I have read/heard somewhere that to combat smelling like garlic (when you take fresh garlic in large quantities), you eat ginger. Ginger snaps, candy, teas can help lessen your body’s garlic odor.

    My favorite remedy (whether I am eating lots of garlic or not) is fresh sliced ginger root steeped in hot water, with fresh sliced lemon and local raw honey to make a tea….and the longer it steeps, the better 🙂

  35. Julie

    We use 1-2 drops of Euclaptus oil in a teaspoon of honey. I just put two drops of oil on the spoon and then fill the teaspoon us with honey and all 4 of my kids ask for this when they are coughing. It doesn’t last forever, but my kids can at least get to sleep and stay asleep for a few hours. Sometimes we have to get up at night and give another dose, but in a day or two the cough is usually non-existant.

  36. Vikki Kay

    I can’t remember the science behind it, but rubbing the eucalyptus on the soles of your feet, or placing a slice of garlic (cut side to the soles of your feet) when you go to bed seems to get rid of the symptoms more quickly.

  37. GQ

    Really it is worth to use of alternate natural ramedies.Having a very little side effects and long lasting effect for good health.Thanks lot for providing such a best information for every personal
    who got it.

  38. greendragonfly

    I’m a scientist and as a result, have friends who are scientists, too. One friend was telling me of new research showing that aloe is not a great idea for sunburns. It apparently is great for heat burns (stove related) but for sunburns doesn’t really help. What does? Green tea. The antioxidants in the tea are supposed to help counter the damage due to the sun in addition to making the burn feel better. She sent me references for this if you are interested… Not sure how to apply the tea – maybe a cloth soaked in the tea applied to the burned area? Or wet tea bags? Just thought that I’d pass this along…

    • Jennifer S Jansky

      That is weird, the aloe healed my husband’s sunburn so fast it was crazy.

  39. Rebekah

    The garlic and honey trick definitely works for me. Like you, I just crush a clove on the spoon and top it with honey.

  40. Cori

    The onion syrup for colds works really well. But my children won’t take it, so instead I made this tea for colds for them: I boil a cinnamon stick and a clove in 3 cups of water. I let this steep for 20 minutes. Then I mix this tea with a lemon juice and a teaspoon of honey. Drink this 3 times daily.

  41. Jennifer S Jansky

    With onion it is really awesome for ear infections. It is the fastest at killing the infection and easing pain. Simply put a few drops of the onion juice in your ear.

    Garlic I find is most effective as garlic oil rubbed on the feet, chest, neck, back, and in and around the ears. My kids never get ear infections because at the first sign that I think they MIGHT be getting sick I rub them down with garlic oil. Easy enough to make I just peel, chop and lightly crush a clove, place into a small jar or bowl with one tablespoon or so of olive oil and let it sit for 15 minutes before use. I keep it covered and throughout the day rub it on the kids and myself to treat viruses and infections. It is a wonder cure! It even helps with coughs simply to have this oil on yourself. The great thing about the oil is it draws out the properties of the garlic very well making it even more effective.

    You can also make it into a poultice by chopping a clove and placing it on a paper towel, fold it and dribble a little very hot water on it to “activate” the garlic but only a little so as not to kill it. This is great on the feet and chest too but is great to hold over an infected painful ear. Garlic as onion go hand in hand as they both have allicin but the garlic seems to be a bit stronger.

    Happy Healing! Great post! Love it.

  42. Anna

    Thank you–so interesting! I had a cold a couple of weeks ago and my Swiss mother-in-law boiled some fresh sage along with honey and vinegar and had me gargle. Really seemed to help with the sore throat and drainage.

  43. Diana

    I put fresh garlic in salsa and eat it on whatever dipping item I have–yummy! And you can put apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice to make it more palatable. I actually started enjoying that one!

  44. MalindaDEAN

    When you are in uncomfortable position and have got no money to get out from that, you would require to receive the credit loans. Just because it should aid you for sure. I get short term loan every time I need and feel great just because of that.

  45. Sally

    Stephanie! Thanks for the tips
    Using home remedies are often more effective than medication and I also feel more secure to use it.
    Which home remedies that most effective for flus? whether eucalyptus, garlic, onion, aloe vera or peppermint? I am confused to select it.
    Could you share any home remedies that can be to regrow hair ?

  46. Maria

    I have been always using aloe vera for burns. Even if I have sun burns in summer, I use aloe. It can help reduce the pain and heal skin.
