The power of natural remedies has risen to prominence in recent years and for good reason. At Nature’s Craft, we believe in the power of herbal products and the potency that they possess to ensure the treatment of many ailments and illnesses. Let’s take a look at a variety of health remedies that have been scientifically proven to treat specific health concerns.


This golden power is renowned the world over for its healing properties and is great for healing discomfort, specifically pain caused by inflammation. It has been used for over 4000 years. Curcumin is the main component of turmeric and contributes to its efficacy. However, curcumin needs to be blended with activating agents such as black pepper to unlock its multitude of health benefits. (Hewlings, 2017) Turmeric supplements are a great way to treat inflammation and soreness associated with exercise as home-ground turmeric does not contain enough curcumin to be fully effective.


Eucalyptus Oil

An element known as 1,8-cineole can be found in eucalyptus oil and may alleviate pain. Inhaling eucalyptus oil has also been proven to reduce pain and ease congestion. (Jun et al, 2013)


Chili Peppers

Capsaicin has been a mainstay of traditional medicine for countless generations, with its benefits gaining mainstream attention in recent years. It has become a common remedy for treating a variety of aches and pains. Placing capsaicin on the affected area causes the skin to get hot, followed by a numb sensation.




There are a variety of mints that each have their own unique benefits and may treat different parts of the body.
Wintergreen is ideal for pain and contains a compound called methyl salicylate which cools and numbs areas that are experiencing discomfort such as joint and muscle pain.
Another great type of mint to use is peppermint which has proven to be particularly effective in treating digestive issues such as IBS and abdominal discomfort. This is likely achieved by peppermint activating an anti-pain channel that is found in the colon. Peppermint is also commonly found in chewing gum and other breath mints and lozenges.



Ginger is an effective anti-inflammatory and is recommended to treat nausea and headaches. Grating ginger into your tea is a perfect way to get your daily dose of ginger and experience all the benefits it has to offer. Another benefit of consuming ginger as a supplement or in its natural form is that you are guaranteed to not experience any of the risks associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).




Headaches and migraine attacks are extremely uncomfortable and are not pleasant to deal with, especially on a regular basis. If you suffer from these ailments, Lavender may be the solution for you. It may also be used to treat stress and general feelings of restlessness. Interestingly, when combined with other plants for aromatherapy, such as sage and rose it can have additional healing properties such as easing premenstrual syndrome systems. 

Making the transition from traditional supplements to more herbal-centric supplements is one that can gradually happen. As shown above, many herbal products with healing properties are readily available in our pantries and fridges. Add them to teas to experience their benefits in a more diluted form or even add some ingredients to meals. Considering taking natural supplements? Gummy supplements are a tasty introduction to herbal supplements and may be taken daily. At Nature’s Craft, we pride ourselves on the quality of our ingredients and the rigorous research and quality assurance that each ingredient undergoes. Choosing one of our many supplements is choosing to invest in your body’s longevity and to ensure that you know exactly what you are consuming and where it comes from. Taking a daily supplement has never been easier or tastier.
