Which grandmother’s remedies? We’ve shown you this before, but it’s worth remembering that nature provides everything you need on a daily basis! So there’s no need to rush to the doctor for the slightest ailment, because most of them can be cured with simple grandmother remedies. And for that, your kitchen contains everything you need!
We often forget that our cupboards are full of 100% natural and effective ingredients for dealing with everyday ailments. Colds, fatigue, headaches and many others do not require the systematic use of medication, but can simply be treated. Let’s discover together the grandmother’s remedies to not only relieve your pains but to soothe you.
The first grandmother’s remedies we suggest
Clay for insect bites
Summer is in full swing, and so are mosquito bites! But don’t panic, we’ve found the perfect solution… clay!
Just like aloe vera, green clay is a safe bet. Simply use green clay already made into a paste, or make one from clay powder. Then add one or two drops of lavender essential oil to your mixture and apply it to your insect bite. Allow to dry and rinse gently. You can repeat this procedure as soon as the itch returns, without any risk.
Aloe vera for its many properties
Aloe vera is a plant known for its antibiotic and analgesic properties. Used to treat many common ailments, it is less well known for its action against mouth ulcers. And yet, using it as a mouthwash, after diluting its pulp in a little water, will be a great comfort if you have a mouth ulcer for example!
Aloe vera will not make it disappear with a wave of a magic wand, it serves here to attenuate the pain that it causes. It will disappear like all canker sores after 9 days without even seeing them.

Honey for burns
You already know the soothing virtues of honey for the throat in winter, but did you know that it is also effective for skin burns?
Indeed, its soothing action against skin burns is less known, but just as effective.
To use it on small surfaces and on a light burn, simply apply it as a mask and leave it on for about fifteen minutes. You can repeat this operation, as often as you like, if your wound hurts again.
