Home Remedies Science Fair project ideas.

Postby abcpqrxyz » Tue Jun 25, 2013 11:27 am

Okay, so this is a state level science fair, and the topic which my school has selected is "Home remedies are better than medicines". This will be competing with various advanced working projects and so it needs to be good. But I'm not able to think of anything concrete. I thought of comparing the effects of tea tree oil and benzoyl peroxide on epethelial cells for curing acne. Tea tree oil is known to reduce redness and inflammation but however it takes a long time to cure the acne/ pimple. While benzoyl peroxide on the other hand dries the area within 24 hours but leaves flakey and spotted skin as it removes the natural moisture of the skin unlike tea tree oil which maintains the natural moisture. I know that it is a rather vague idea. I have no idea what to do as it is my first time, partcipating in a science fair. Please give me some suggestions on how I sould go about my project. If you have any better idea for a project on this topic please please type it for my. I'll really appriciate your help. Thank You!

Hi. Have you looked at this project at Science Buddies? http://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-f ... p019.shtml

It is similar in concept to the examples you are thinking about. While the project may not map to specifically what you have in mind, you may find looking over the procedure helpful in thinking about how you might test the effectiveness of different remedies.

Hi,
first of all I would like to introduce myself. I am a part time blogger and a researcher on home remedies for different skin issues at Mynahcare. I need to ask you one thing and that is do you have to continue with your project for tea tree oil and benzoly? I mean there are a lot of other home remedies to treat pimples in the best possible way. If you have not setup your mind to just tea treee oil then i would like to suggest another method for your project.
