Healthy Divas-Herbs that Help

There is nothing like listening to the grandmothers of the mountains.  They know good stuff.  They know everything from how to cure a colicy infant to how to put a stopper in death.

Today we share a few I’ve heard of late.

Prevent Infections:  Eucalyptus Oil- The oil from this  Australian evergreen potent as a antibacterial and antiviral compound. It can reduce skin irritation and prevent infection. Medical Reports even say it can cut healing time by half.  In fact it destroys drug resistant bacteria even the dangerous staph infections.

Suggestion: Dilute 2 drops if the oil in 1 teaspoon of  unpasturized honey (another wound healer), then dab onto cuts twice daily for three days.

Banish Blisters: Witch Hazel-I use this natural product as a facial astringent.  It is also good for blisters.  Research shows it promotes healing, and eases the tenderness of blistered skin.

Suggestion: Apply with cotton and cover with a bandage.  Leave it for 5-10 minutes twice daily until the blister dries up.

Namaste,

The Queen Cronista
