Awesome podcast! Love the tips! The natural remedy I've always used is a baking soda and water paste to use on bee stings.

For some reason I don't think about natural remedies usually, so the podcast was great - especially taking a large dosage of a B complex supplement to help with mosquitoes

White vinager works great for taking the stinging out of sun burns and bee stings. Pour on a paper towel and hold on infected areas. Works great

You know, my grandmother always had a beautiful healthy aloe plant in her place; and I followed that tradition. I truly believe that aloe is one of nature's greatest healers. Great podcast btw!

Just as they mentioned, Lavender does a lot of things for your skin. It is one of the few essential oils that can be used undiluted directly onto your skin. The fragrance is awesome. It is my favorite!

My favorite natural remedy is applying honey to a bruise to get rid of the discoloration.

Put a slice of raw bacon in an old nylon stocking and tie it around your neck for a sore throat. Ok it smells -- but it works.

Ammonia for mosquito bites. Don't know how natural that is, but it is a home remedy that works. Put it on the bite, before you scratch it and it will take the itch out of it.

wet the tip of a match and rub it on a bug bite - it takes the itch away.

My husband uses Tea Tree oil for dandruff. I used to use it when I had dreads and it worked perfect!!

I also moisturize abrasians after cleansing with almond oil to prevent friction and to seal and then covering with a cotton bandage if necessary.

My son and myself are very pale skinned and always get sunburned despite using sunscreen. Peppermint to help will be something new to try.

Heard good advice to help prevent bug bites.I did not know that you could change the taste of your skin by taking B Complex vitamins and by eating onions and garlic-makes you less tasty for the bugs!
