Cabbage poultice

Although there is no scientific evidence to support the claim, traditional medicine has long held that fresh green cabbage leaves (especially Savoy cabbage) can help to relieve eczema. Wash, pound and warm the leaves, then use a bandage to hold several layers of them in place on the affected areas every morning and night.

i knew someone who'd walk around with a cabbage leaf tied to her forehead, claiming that it takes away the headache. I've never tried it, but it might be true as well :)
