Lemon and Parsley Home Remedies

You might think of lemon and parsley as great garnishes for your drink glass and plate, but did you know that you can use them to ease symptoms of common minor ailments?

Sure, the lemon makes a good drink and even tastes good squirted on fish, but you might want to make sure you have some on hand for more than dinner. The lemon can be your best friend when you have a common headache. Simply cut a long strip of the rind and put it on your forehead ? rub in the inside white part and then fasten it to your head. Sure, you'll look a little nutty but who cares as long as it gets rid of the ache!

Lemon peel is not only good for the head, but for the feet too! One age old remedy for corns is to apply a lemon peel (white side against the corn) to the corn and affix it so that it stays on overnight. You can remove it during the day, but repeat each night for 7 days.

Parsley is another great home remedy food that is often left uneaten on the side of the plate. Besides being rich in potassium and vitamins it is also reputed to strengthen the kidneys and help with waste removal. And not only that, but it can help relive bad breath too! So next time you get some parsley on your plate, eat up!

Parsley is also good as a topical remedy for bruises. Next time you have a bruise, crush up some parsley leaves and apply straight to the affected area.

One other problem that parsley is a good remedy for is bladder infections. You've probably experienced how quickly cranberry juice can clear up one of these, but if you don't like cranberries or get sick of drinking it, try a parsley tea. Simply pour some boiled water over parsley and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain out the parsley and drink.
