How to Make Natural Antibiotics

    Fight digestive and sinus infections with oregano oil. Take oregano oil by mouth as directed to address digestive issues including some forms of food poisoning. Inhale oil directly to reduce and possibly eliminate the impact of a sinus infection.
    • Pour oil into a ceramic mug or small glass bowl. Heat in the microwave (or in a pan on the stovetop) until oil is simmering.
    • Hover over the mug or bowl and cover your entire head with a towel. Keep towel open toward mug or bowl.
    • Breathe deeply and inhale oil--keep eyes closed to avoid irritation.

    Reduce the duration of the common cold with Echinacea. A recent study showed that participants reduced the average duration of their cold by 26%.
    • Take 3 doses of Echinacea during cold and flu season to reduce the likelihood of getting sick and/or shortening the duration.
    • Drink tea with Echinacea if you prefer over supplementation.

    • Combine 2 parts turmeric with 1 part distilled water. Mix well to form a paste.
    • Slather paste over wound and allow to dry.
