Crush Aspirin, rub it in your hair and watch what happens
Aspirin is one of the most commonly used painkillers. In fact, it is probably found in every home. It is excellent against pain, but it can also reduce a fever. Studies have shown that aspirin can drastically reduce the risk of heart attacks and blood clots in heart patients.
Aspirin was first made of willow bark, and as natural analgesic has a long history. Even by the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates (father of medicine) recommended to their patients for the treatment of headaches.
Salicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin, was first isolated in 1897 by Felix Hoffman, when he worked as a chemist at Bayer. Today, the annual consumption of aspirin reached around 40,000 tons in the world, making it one of the most commonly used drugs.
In addition to its pain-relieving properties, aspirin is good for the following:
- Eliminates dandruff: The active ingredient in aspirin, salicylic acid, has great moisturizing properties that work extremely well against dandruff. What you need to do is crushed 2-3 aspirin into a powder and mix it with your shampoo. Once you have applied the shampoo, leave for a few minutes, and then wash your hair normally.
- Clean the skin: Salicylic acid is also very useful for skin health. Effectively removes dead skin cells, cleans pores and reduces swelling and redness. Break five aspirin pills into a powder and mix with ¼ cup of water and a teaspoon of honey (optional). Wash your face with this mixture, preferably once a week.
- Aspirin eliminates sweat stains. As in the previous recipe, mix ingredients and apply to the stain. Leave to stay for a few minutes, then wash it into washing machine normally.
- It can help your car: If your battery is “dead” try to put a couple of aspirin (at least two per cell) into the battery charger. Salicylic acid reacts with sulfuric acid in the battery and generates enough charge.
Note: This trick can be a lifesaver in emergency situations, but it should not be used too often because it can damage the battery.
Aspirin protects your flowers: As the skin the similar is the effect of salicylic acid that has on the flowers. Aspirin prevents the formation of mold and the production of ethylene gas, which causes a drying of flowers. Put an aspirin in a vase in which you keep your bouquets and they will last longer.
