Kodi's mom really came up with a great topic for this month with home remedies. There are so many different ones in each entry - I'm planning to compile them, grouped by ailment type, and keep them at home as a handy booklet.
I remembered a few more home remedies that we use quite often.
For diarrhoea: soak 1 tsp of fenugreek seeds in 1 tbsp home made curds overnight, and swallow it the next morning. This is something we have followed for years and it's quite effective for adults as well as children.
Interestingly, I used to eat 1 tbsp of fenugreek seeds soaked overnight in water to help me lactate better after my daughter was born.
For constipation: Give your child bananas.
For a stuffy nose: inhale in water to which you have added a few drops of eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus oil drops in a bowl of warm water is also a great way to keep mosquitoes away.
