Ginger for nausea, I usually make ginger tea, tastes nice too :)

A wee dab of vodka to dry up cold sores, I dont like vodka so I just buy a miniature and use a cotton bud to put it on.

Salt has many uses and it's naturally anti bacterial, wash hands, brush teeth and in warm water u can use it as a gargle.

Schweppes Tonic Water with quinine for cramps. Such a relief for me without the whole body spasms I was experiencing.

Comfrey ointment for rashes, stings and painless healing. Use sparingly. My first aid cabinet contains comfrey, tea tree and eucalyptus oils and bandaids.

Peppermint is well known in helping some digestive conditions, like indigestion and wind, but it may hurt others, such as heartburn due to gastroesophogeal reflux disease as it relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter which could allow stomach acid to slosh back up the esophagus.

Menthol gel such as Ben Gay works on arthritis-type pain...`also helps clear both chest and nasal congestion of a cold and helps relieve the itching of rashes such as poison ivy!
