They also used funeral candles to cure burns. Another top-ranking home remedy was to wear a bracelet of mint around your wrist to get rid of stomach disease. Nothing like dead flesh to chase away disease and candles to cure burns! For the full list of ancient Irish home remedies, see the link below.
