I like using saline to clear a stuff nose. My favorite idea from the pod cast is lavender essential oil diluted in water for sun burn relief. I would feel safe using that for my young children. B complex vitamins keep bugs away??? I'm trying that!

I like to drink cranberry juice when I feel a UTI coming on. I also feed my kids a lot of yogurt when they are first showing the signs of an ear infection. More than once it has cleared it up.

I barely get sick, but when I do get a stomach flu/food poisoning, I always keep ginger around. It helps my stomach relax, and I don't have to worry about getting out and going to the store.

I think Castor Oil is a wonderful natural remedy for a lot of ailments and good for preventing a lot of them as well! I use it to wash and moisturize my face, clean my teeth and it also works great as a laxative! :)

Putting peppermint oil in bath water for sunburns was great to learn. It would smell good and be a great additive to Aloe. Thanks for the info!

Lots of good ideas. I have always found Teat Tree oil will keep off ticks etc, but never thought to use it for cleaning and soothing. I also like the idea of adding beneficial oils to lotion - like peppermint to help a sun burn. Thanks

I do not get stung very often as an adult, but as a child my mother put a mixture of baking soda and water on my bee stings. It really helped to ease the pain especially on the sensitive arch of my foot where I always seemed to get them!
