  1. My family cure all was Vicks vapor rub. My mom would heat it up in a pan and then smear it on our necks and nose. Then she would pin a white cotton sock around our throats to keep the vicks from evaporating too quick. Along with the Vicks, she’d heat up honey and lemon juice for us to drink to sooth our throats.

  2. A warm cup of milk with a cinnamon stick is my family’s cure for insomnia. This is my favorite home remedy because it tastes so good. But perhaps my favorite home remedy from childhood is my mom’s cure for the cold: bed rest with plenty of vegetable soup with hot peppers. The hot peppers, I learned much later in life, acts as a decongestion.

  3. My family’s cure for a sore throat is Chinese bitter melon soup. It doesn’t need to be fancy, just some melon slices cooked in chicken broth. It works better than anything at the drugstore!

  4. Ginger! Not only tasty in both sweet and savory food, but a natural decongestant and cure for morning sickness. I have it in chicken soup, boiled in water for tea, and grate lots of it for gingerbread.

  5. Congratulations to Linda on winning the contest! Naomi had a difficult time deciding since every home remedy mentioned here is wonderful. However, ginger is one of her personal favorite home remedies, so Linda has won a free copy of TASHI AND THE TIBETAN FLOWER CURE.

    Thank you to everyone who participated, and keep an eye out for more giveaways from Lee & Low. Happy Halloween!
