1) SALIVA: for insect bites,if your somewhere outdoors and get bitten by a few mosquitos then applying saliva on the bites calms it down for a little while-hey not all of us carry anti-mosquito stuff with us all the time do we? You have to re-apply the saliva from time to time.

2) BLACK TEA is great for hydrating you if you have had too much to drink or are thirsty-works better than water or other liquids at quenching thirst..
Also excellent if you have been out clubbing for the night to drink when you wake-up! It basically hydrates you inside and stops that annoying feeling you get when you are thirsty.

3) MIXED BERRIES-including blueberries: For an energy boost-blueberries are super-foods anyway and they work wonders!?!?

4) OLIVE OIL: Great to condition your hair and for general haircare-just put it in your hair about 1-2 hours before you shower and it will really help your hair a lot!

5) MUSTARD OIL: Excellent for the hair,great to strengthen and condition the hair and great for weak hair as it helps to make it stronger-same as olive oil-put in your hair about 1-2 hours before you shower.

6) EGG: Another excellent treatment for the hair-helps to nourish and condition and gives nutrients to it-apply to hair 1-2 hours before you shower.

7) HENNA: For the hair same as above oils and egg!

BEWARE: Dont use if you have light/blonde/grey/white hair unless you want your hair to turn a weird orange/red colour..

8) HONEY: For diabetics-believe it or not it helps keep blood sugar levels in control-and is a natural sweetner. There has been research carried out that honey helps keep blood sugar levels in control and even reduce blood sugar levels.

9) You can rub Castor oil on warts morning and night and rub around on it 20 times or so,that way it gets well worked in. Do that each and everytime you apply the oil. It should begin to disappear within a month or so sometimes sooner.

Anyone have any to add (please do

When I bruise myself in my garden I sometimes cut a leaf off one of the many aloe vera plants we have there and rub on some of the stuff that's inside the leaf.

As for olive oil or eggs: I prefer them in my mouth...
