26. Blackberry Tea for Diarrhea
Rich in tannins, blackberries tighten mucous membrane substances in the intestinal tract, which makes them a great treatment for diarrhea. Make a blackberry tea by boiling one or two tablespoons of fresh or frozen blackberries or dried blackberry leaves in one and a half cups of water for ten minutes, then strain. Drink a few cups of this helpful tea each day.
25. Cucumbers for Eyestrain
We’ve seen them used in spas for beauty treatment, but they can also help eyestrain. Lie on your back and place one cucumber slice (about one-eighth-inch thick) over each closed eye. Cucumbers contain antioxidants that studies have shown decrease swelling and also relieve pain. Replace the slices with a cooler pair every two or three minutes for up to 15 minutes.
24. Lavender Oil for Foot Odor
Lavender essential oil carries antibacterial properties that not only allow it to smell wonderful but also help kill germs. Before going to bed, rub a few drops of oil onto your feet and massage it in. Wear a pair of socks to protect your sheets.
