6 Naturally Organic Things Your Nana Used That Came From Nature

  • Sharebar

In grandma’s day, there weren’t any chemical products on the market, so that people were forced to use whatever they had if a problem occurred. Still, this isn’t necessarily bad. Years later, even with these chemical products on the market, people still don’t use them because these natural products work just fine. Why should they change something that might potentially be unsafe if a natural product that is not unsafe works? Plus, these chemical products can often cost more than their natural counterparts.

In days gone by, people used food and products they had around the house to cure pimples, sores, bad breath, ingrown hairs, and a myriad of other health complaints. Many grandmothers, too, believe that chemicals or anything “newfangled” on the market is unnecessary, just like many older people think that computers and technology are best left alone. In short, using natural products for beauty treatments and “home grown” cures are better than any manufactured product you could buy.

There are many products that can be used for other reasons than its obvious reason. Some of these products include Tea Tree Oil, Geranium, Jaffa, Almonds, Rosemary, Avocado, Vanilla, Sunflower, Anise, Lemon, Cocoa Butter, Mint, Sweet Orange, Mixed Berries and more. These are just a few of the things you might have in your home at the moment that can be put to good use.

For example, if you have poor digestion, you can drink lemon juice every morning, and it’s also good for quenching your thirst without a lot of the preservatives, sugar, and artificial colors that commercial drink mixes have. Using lemon is also good if you have a cold or the flu, and if you feel a cold coming on, you can mix some honey with warm lemon juice and drink it three times a day.

Tea Tree Oil is another one of Nana’s favorites. You might remember her always pulling out her bottle of Oil when you hurt yourself. This is great for acne, cuts, abrasions, ingrown hairs, rashes, smelly feet and more. Always have a bottle of Tea Tree Oil handy. You will be surprised at how often you will use it. After a while you are going to wonder how you survived without it.

Don’t spend money on air fresheners that are harsh on your nose; instead, put some fresh rosemary into a basket or vase in each room of your home. It will keep your home fresh smelling, and is also unique. It doesn’t smell like any chemical air fresheners, and instead gives off a natural, clean smell.

Bad breath is something many people suffer from, even if they brush their teeth three times a day. Sometime bad breath stems from stomach problems and bad thyroids, and individuals can’t help their bad breath. If you carry mint leaves with you and chew on one when you notice the bad breath come on, then you won’t have any problems. Just remember your leaves wherever you go. Parsley is also good for bad breath if that is easier for you to get your hands on.

Natural products are certainly more cost effective than their chemical counterparts, but they’ll also often do a better job and certainly make you feel better than the alternatives. In general, natural products don’t have the side effects chemical counterparts can, so you should able to get the help you need and still have no problems with the products themselves.
