Prompt: Home Remedies

Growing up, did your family have home remedies, possibly passed down from generation to generation?

Some home remedies have been proven to be effective. Some are mere panaceas, of comfort to those giving and receiving the treatment.

The prompt is to write about a home remedy in your family or one you’ve overheard. Tell the story by tapping into the emotional and sensual descriptions of the experience, good or bad.
