Ripened Banana Remedy For Splinters
Who knew that bananas could be used for splinters? I sure didn’t! Take a ripened banana peel and cut off a piece that is about the size of the affected area. Apply the banana peel pulp side down on to the splinter. Then wrap with a bandage. The enzymes in the peel will break down the splinter and help it to rise to the top. Apply the bandage at night and by the morning you should be able to take off the bandage and remove the splinter.
Apple Cider Vinegar For Dandruff
Dr Oz said that they have talked about apple cider vinegar for many things on his show, but never for dandruff. Take one part apple cider vinegar with one part water and put it in a spray bottle. Spritz on to your scalp, massage, and wrap your head with a towel. Wait for 15 minutes. You can do this two times for week. In the beginning you can do this treatment 3 days in a row to start out.
Pickle Juice For Muscle Cramps
Who knew that pickle juice could be used for muscle cramps? Well as a matter of.
fact, I’ve heard of sports players drinking pickle juice as a way to keep them hydrated. This in turn muscle help prevent muscle cramps by keeping the muscles hydrated! Donnica said that pickle juice helps to prevent muscle cramps because of it’s acid content (rather than the salt). She said that there have been studies performed that prove that pickle juice for muscle cramps really does work.
Licorice For Calluses
There are estrogen compounds in licorice that can help to breakdown calluses. You should get an actual licorice stick rather than the candy at a health food store. Grind 4 licorice sticks. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil. Rub on to the callus at night before bed.
