3 Homemade Remedies Everyone Should Know

3 Homemade Remedies Everyone Should Know

There are a handful of go-to herbal remedies that my wife Michelle and I keep around the house at all times. Plants are super powerful and our ancestors knew it — thankfully they’ve handed many of them down to us.

Today I want to share 3 of these recipes with you!

With these medicines on hand, you’ll be well-prepared year-round…

#1 Sage Tincture for Sore Throats

We’ve all been there. The sickness starts as a scratchy feeling in your throat and develops into a cough… then into a fever… and then you’re down for the count.

This sage tincture will nip that first symptom in the bud while offering other wholesome benefits.

Sage is well-known as an antioxidant-rich seasoning — its piney and savory flavor makes it a common culinary addition to soups and sauces. Because of its popularity in cooking, people often overlook sage as a form of medicine… but the truth is that sage is a potent throat-healing remedy! 

This antibacterial and anti-inflammatory herb is a natural painkiller that soothes both congestion and “runny” symptoms like post-nasal drainage when sprayed at the back of the throat.

Here’s how you can make your own sage tincture at home:

Ingredients

  • 1 small glass jar
  • Sage (dried or fresh)
  • 90-proof alcohol (usually vodka, rum or brandy)

Instructions

  1. Pack the jar with sage
  2. Fill the jar with the alcohol all the way to the top
  3. Seal with an air-tight lid
  4. Shake
  5. Place in a cool dark place for at least a month
  6. Shake every other day
  7. After a month, strain liquid into a tincture bottle with dropper

Use the tincture as needed for sore throats and congestion.

#2 Pickled Garlic 

Garlic is another healing food that typically falls below the medicinal radar. But did you know that garlic can significantly reduce your risk of getting sick and cut your recovery time in half if you do?

Garlic is so powerfully antiviral and antibacterial that even the aroma from cooking it can purify bacteria in the air.

One of my favorite ways to get my daily dose is with pickled garlic. It’s such a simple and delicious way to support your immune system – all you have to do is pop one clove in your mouth daily. 

Here’s the recipe we make at home — instead of buying it at the store.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint jar
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • 5 to 6 bulbs of garlic, broken into cloves and peeled
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp dill (optional)
  • One heat-proof sealable glass jar

Instructions

  1. In the 1-pint jar, place the garlic cloves (and other ingredients if you chose to use them). Leave an inch of space on the top.
  2. Pour the apple cider vinegar over the garlic until the cloves are covered.
  3. Fasten the lid and leave the jar in a dark place at room temperature for 2 weeks.
  4. After 2 weeks, transfer to your refrigerator or a cool cellar.
  5. Try to wait 2 to 3 weeks before eating.
  6. Enjoy!

This recipe is easy enough that you can keep pickled garlic on hand all season long. And as an added bonus, the pickling helps to feed your healthy gut bacteria!

#3 Aloe Vera

This last remedy comes from a plant that’s so powerful you don’t even need a recipe for it. Just put in the minimal effort needed to grow one in your home (really, it’s one of the easiest plants to keep around)!

Aloe vera, AKA the “wonder plant,” is a hardy succulent known for its outstanding health benefits on a wide range of ailments. Its long, thick leaves are filled with a gel that is packed with vitamins, minerals and healing enzymes, which make aloe vera gel one of the best topical remedies the earth has to offer.

Loaded with fatty acids that help with pain relief, the gelatinous leaves are commonly used to soothe burns, heal wounds and repair skin. Just cut off a leaf as close to the stem as possible, trim away the green skin and you’re left with a translucent gel that you can rub anywhere that is hurting. 

Aloe vera is also healing when ingested! Juice from the leaves is very refreshing and supports your digestive system by regulating the number of bacteria in your gut flora and soothing inflamed gastrointestinal tissue.

*Make sure to do your homework before ingesting this potent plant. Some parts near the rind — particularly the yellow juice called “aloe latex” — are so powerful they should not be taken in high doses. 

This no-fuss superplant should be in every home. All aloe needs to thrive is sunshine, consistent temperatures and water every 3 months — that’s it!

These 3 all-natural home medicines are easy and fun to prepare. We highly recommend having them all on hand.
