Dealing with braces pain can be tough, but a simple gargle with a cup of water mixed with half a teaspoon of salt can work wonders and do everything from reducing soreness to significantly reducing the pain.
Got a little one with a nasty rash in the diaper region? Using coconut oil for diaper rash is super effective- not only does it soothe inflamed and irritated skin of the highly sensitive region, but also creates a sort of protective layer on it.
Winter is officially here, and while that’s a good enough reason to start looking up some delicious soup and stew recipes, there’s another one to add to the list. A simple bowl of chicken soup can be a super effective way to tackle a cold naturally!
Growing pains getting tough to deal with? Don’t underestimate the power of a nice massage! Massaging the painful areas with gentle, circular motion for a few minutes can help- not to mention you’ll also get some time with your kid!

These probiotics pack a powerful punch of good bacteria, which boost digestive health and speed up recovery!
It turns out grandma was right! A simple concoction of honey and lemon juice can work wonders in reducing cough naturally! In fact, a study has found that it can work better than cough medicine!
