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!

This works too, put a wet red tip of a matchstick or a cold wet rock on a bee sting

The best natural cure-all is jumping into the shower completely naked. This treats: heat exhaustion, fatigue, scrapes, aches, croup, dandruff, eczema, insomnia, wrinkles, dry skin, oily skin, dual-skin. Jumping into the shower clothed doesn't quite cover the same benefits but adds washing your clothes to the list.

I have a homeopathic kid's kit from whole foods, it always has something to help what ails 'em.

My fave natural remedy is gargling salt water to help your sore throat. It's helped me plenty of times over the years and will continue to act as a quick resolve for me!

When I was a young girl visiting a farm I was stung by a bee. Grandma took a hair pin from her hair and put ear wax on the site where I was stung. I didn't think much about it then as it felt better when she did that but as an adult now I wonder if she ever cleaned her ears. Yuk.

I have also heard soaking your feet in tea will make them not sweat as much. I haven't tried it though...

Love the natural remedies! My favorite remedy of all time is powdered ginger mixed with warm water until it tastes very strong, but not burny and too strong, give about a teaspoonful to a colicky newborn wait 20 minutes and either repeat or cuddle up with your now comfortable and content baby and get in a little nap. This worked so well it was amazing! Went from heartbeaking inconsolable crying and wiggling to calm and comfy in 10 minutes!!!

WOW peppermint. I never heard of that on but Aloe is a must have. I use it as a mosturizer and anything with skin (skinburns,cuts scrapes). It works great

Great, informative Pod Cast. I would have never known that with just a few drops of St Warts Extract or even Lavender oil and also Avocado oil are good for sunburns. When I was real young - My grandmother used Mayo to relieve sunburn. I can remember going to the beach and afterwards she would smear that mayo on the sunburn.

Aloe vera is an amazing plant. I once burned my hand on the coil in an electric oven. I kept it moist with pure aloe vera and within a week the mark was completely gone.
