Send Me Your Weirdest Folk Remedy Stories

messageboard.jpgWho has weird family home remedy stories? I want ’em!

Did your mom give you hot toddies for a sore throat?

Did your aunt put tobacco on bee stings?

Did your grandmother put cut onions on the bottoms of your feet when you had a cold?

Did THEIR mothers, aunts, and grannies have even weirder stories than that?

I’m recording history here, folks. Hit me up.

I wear a lot of hats. I’m a writer, designer, and motion graphics artist. A Taurus sun/Scorpio moon/Leo rising. An ENFP, HSP, and all-around bleeding heart. A folk medicine anthropologist and purveyor of tiny bottles of plant magic. I co-own Baskervillain Studios with my husband, John, and we live in a funky little enclave five-ish miles outside Atlanta with our kitty, Magical Mr. Murphy O. Milam. I started my blog because I’m fascinated by herbal medicine, natural remedies, essential oils, and DIY beauty. And because when the zombie apocalypse hits, damn it, I’m gonna need a trade. I’ll pull my weight, I promise. I write about my ongoing journey using herbs, Young Living essential oils, and traditional foods as a way to take ownership of my own health and wellness. I post recipes, herbal and folk remedies, and DIY skin and beauty care made from natural ingredients. And a little kitchen witchery sneaks in now and again.
