Cold & Flu Season. Ugh! We’ve already battled with some stuffy noses and coughs at our house, and I know that this is the just the beginning. When you have little ones, and even when you yourself, feel sick and under the weather, you would do anything you can to help them, and you, feel better!
I’m so excited that today I get to offer you a great giveaway from Michele at Frugal Granola, Herbal Nurturing: A Family Healing and Learning Guide. This ebook is full of recipes that will get you well on your way to mixing up safe and effective homemade remedies for everything from scrapes and sunburns to cold and flu relief.
I’ll be honest that I have not actually tried any of the recipes in Herbal Nurturing yet, they do require ingredients that most of us probably just don’t have on hand in our cupboards. But, there are several recipes that I really want (and need!) to try, so I am working on making up a list of ingredients to buy from Mountain Rose Herbs. First on my list are the Three-in-One Healing Balms and Cough Syrup.
One part of the ebook that I have been able to use, and really appreciated, is the urgent care option for many of the recipes. It gives quick, and easy, remedies for times when you don’t have ingredients on hand, or are too sick to make up a whole recipe, or your child is awake coughing in the middle of the night.
As I write this, it’s 5:30 AM, and I have been up with my daughter who was having coughing fits during the night. After giving her a drink of water, a spoonful of raw honey, and rubbing her chest, back and neck with jojoba oil and a drop or two of eucalyptus essential oil, she is back sleeping soundly (these remedies are not in Herbal Nurturing, I read about them elsewhere). I am so happy to have some quick, easy, natural options on hand so that I don’t have to rely on over the counter medicine and so I can get my daughter back to sleep as quickly as possible, even though I might not be able to go back to sleep myself!
