Instead of doling out cash at the pharmacy, some home remedies may relieve the pain for less.
Here are some easy fixes you can try at home that may help that cost less than five dollars.
For a toothache, turn to cloves.
Biting down on them releases an oil with an analgesic and antibacterial properties. It relieves pain and also kills bacteria that may be causing the ache.
Honey can soothe a sore throat.
Mix a dash of cayenne pepper, one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and water with honey to maximize the effect.
Try stopping back pain with peppermint.
The menthol in peppermint oil is a proven pain reliever. Just drop some of the oil in water, freeze and rub the ice over your back.
