When you find yourself sick or got minor cuts or wounds, your first reaction would be to look for a way to cure it. The next step would be to follow the common advice given by doctors on how to apply first aid. This is through medicines chemically produced and sold either at pharmacies or over the counter. But even with these first aid already offered to common people, there are people who deprive themselves of the usual way and just stick to a more ‘natural’ way of curing themselves, and that is by going organic – ones that are easily accessed at the comfort of your kitchen.
The common ailments that people face are either burns, minor wounds, flu and colds, rashes, bites and stings, diarrhea, and UTI. For burns, use honey or filleted cactus pads. The former is effective against burns as it will stop further infection; it will also stimulate regeneration and will aid in keeping the affected area moistened. As for the latter, place the cactus pads on top of the burn directly and bandage it up. If it is a sunburn, rub it against the area affected. Rashes is addressed depending on its source. If it is hives, you will need to apply the root of Echinacea angustifolia topically with the use of a cotton ball to apply it to the affected area. Rashes that are caused by poison ivy is addressed using the jewelweed salve. For bites and stings, you should use the prickly pear the same way you do with the burns.
