Before modern medicine, humans used plants for healing. Even though most villages had a shaman or wise person to call on when serious illness struck, everyone knew at least a few simple remedies for minor complaints. That’s not really true any more. Most people head to the emergency room for uncomfortable but non-serious problems that can often be solved with a little know-how and a few basic staples. These herbal hacks are all easy, cheap, and use simple ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen, or are easy to find here at Loose Leaf, or in just about any grocery store.
I’ve broken down the herbal hacks into categories, so feel free to read them all, or scroll to the topics that interest you the most.
Important note: Although these herbal remedies all contain ingredients that are generally regarded as safe, check with your primary care provider before using them if you’re pregnant, nursing, are under a physician’s care, or are taking prescription medication.
We’d love to hear your tried and true home remedies in the comments below!
