Apparently banana peels are a kind of miracle drug, and I’m just now finding out about it. Since I’m not a big fan of medicine, I’m really excited about this. I’m all for taking a piece of tape and attaching a banana peel to my body if it will do what some people claim. I might look like an idiot, but I’ll smell like a sweet banana split. Heeeeeey!
My question is, do I have to actually rub the banana peel on my body or can I make banana pudding and use it as a body cream? Ok, I know, this is getting gross, or tasty, depending on how you look at it. These banana peel cures are nothing new. I’ve found evidence of these claims on the Internet as far back as 2004. Have you ever tried a banana peel for any of these purposes? Does it really work? Yup, I’m picking up a bunch of these badboys today. I wonder if it matters how ripe they are.
