Day 26: Lobject’s aloe plant

Remedies of my childhood
exceed web MD’s direction

Aloe vera is a sunburn staple
Mustard calms kitchen burns  

Hot water with lemon, honey
Mom’s chicken noodle soup

Vicks vapor rubbed all over
Moist air surrounding sleep   

Medicine can’t replace loving
hands’ unique power to heal

Aren’t we all eight-year-olds
who don’t feel good at times?

  1. FYI: 1 tablespoon of mustard = heartburn relief. Sounds too odd to be true, but I went against my gut instinct (for once), and it works. :)
