If a mother knows better, a grandmother knows best. Whenever we feel confused on so many things, we turn to our mothers and their mothers for answers. And we realize that their old-school advice is often the best option to take. Here are a few of the best advice or home kitchen remedies that grandmothers pass down to us.


The garlic that we normally used in cooking could give us so much more than its unique taste. It could be an antibiotic remedy because garlic contains an antioxidant, allicin. If you crush or chop garlic cloves, the allicin becomes an enzyme called allicin that could help activate cellular activity to fight infection in your body.

Apart from its power to marinate your chicken, rosemary is actually a stimulant and mild analgesic. Adding a generous dose of fresh rosemary is proven to be very useful for people who frequently experience headaches and poor blood circulation.

Lemongrass is also a herbal remedy as antibacterial and antifungal. In Brazil, it is commonly used for treating nerve disorders and stomach problems. It could also help in fever, vomiting, stomach upsets, gas, bowel disorders, and diarrhea. Some even agrees that they use lemongrass for acne and pain.

A cranberry juice is not just a drink; it is also a herbal remedy. Cranberries are strong natural combatant of urinary tract infection. It could stop bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder and stops the bacteria to multiply.

Common ailments call for common remedies. Listen to your grandmother and learn more about home or herbal remedies.
