11 bizarre home remedies our grandparents used that actually work

Next time you feel an earache, indigestion, or motion sickness, try your hand at these bizarre remedies. As odd as they seem, they actually do work!

1. Lemons for Earache

Amazingly, squeezing some lemon juice on the ear bud and popping it into the ear for a minute helps relieve earache.  It works by stabilizing the pH levels in the ears and making them feel as good as new.

2. Dried Apricots for Indigestion

Being high in dietary fiber, dried apricots help the stomach digest food and thus prevent bloating.  So, the next time you feel bad after a heavy meal, simply snack on a handful of apricots.

3. Olives for Motion Sickness

Olives are packed with tannins, compounds which help inhibit the production of too much saliva, which makes you feel ill or sick.  So, make sure you take some tasty, juicy olives with you on your next car journey!
