Hello All, I've always been interested in home remedies. Not necessarily because I want to skip a trip to the doctor, but because I know there are times when a trip to the doc isn't always feesable (little money, weather, etc.). Also because it is kind of fun to find out where the remedies came from...such as a family remedy handed down for ages, something that someone just stumbled on, and so forth. so what are the home remedies that you swear by? How did you learn about them? What home remedies have you heard of that just sound crazy by todays standards? My Father (now 70) swears by putting axle grease in cuts. keeps it from getting infected and helps the cut heal. His grandfather taught his father, and his father taught him.
