Sci­ence some­times scram­bles to catch up to a band­wagon that folk medicine has been rid­ing for ages. When re­search fi­nally backed up Grandma Betty’s chicken noo­dle soup cold cure, snif­flers ev­ery­where re­joiced. When gin­ger was shown to be an up­set stom­ach soother, you could hear the el­derly whis­per, “I told you so.” Here are some other nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents that can help cure what ails you. Chamomile is well known for help­ing with stress and sleep, but did you know it has also been used through­out his­tory to soothe skin rashes and swelling? When con­sumed as tea, chamomile can help you calm down and re­duce ir­ri­ta­tion from chest colds and gum in­flam­ma­tion. When used top­i­cally, as in a bath, chamomile has been shown to help with symp­toms of eczema, di­a­per rash, and even chicken pox. The ac­tive in­gre­di­ents? Bis­abolol, bis­abolol ox­ides A and B, ma­tricin, and flavonoids in­clud­ing api­genin. Source: Phy­tother­apy Re­search
