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 may be another of your grandmother's favorites. When you were small, did she pull out her bottle of oil and put a little bit on the cut you suffered? It's also great for cuts, abrasions, ingrown hairs, smelly feet, rashes, and acne, not to mention many more uses. Keep tea tree oil on hand and you will be surprised at how often you use it. In fact, it won't be long before you wonder how you ever got along without it.

Instead of spending ridiculous amounts of money on these air fresheners that are harsh on your sensitive nose, all you have to do to keep your home smelling clean is put fresh rosemary into a vase or basket in each room of the house. It will give off a nice homely, clean, fresh smell that will also be unique as it doesn't smell like other air fresheners there are. It smells natural.

Do you suffer from bad breath? A lot of people do, even if they brush their teeth several times a day. In some cases, bad breath can come from unhealthy thyroids or from stomach problems, and individuals can't help it. If you suffer from bad breath, carrying mint with you and chewing on one when you notice bad breath will help alleviate the situation. Parsley is a good alternative if you can't find mint leaves to carry with you.

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.
