Did you know that a teaspoon of honey (local - raw is best) and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon will usually knock out a cold within a day or two? Take twice a day for 3 days for best results. Both honey and cinnamon are antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. Also knocks bladder/kidney infections, reduces sugar levels, blood pressure, acts as a pain reliever for arthritis. And much more!
For a simple paste that provides great relief, try making this anti-itch bug bite cream mixture: combine 1/2 c baking soda, 1/8 c water and a tsp of salt. Mix well; paste should be thick, like toothpaste. If mixture is too runny, add more baking soda. Apply directly to area in need.
