Healthy Home Remedies for this Winter
I feel like I need to start this off by saying I am only a mom to four. I am not a professional holistic advisor or doctor. However, again, I am a mom to four. A mom of four who hates taking her kids to the doctors where every other sick person will be sure to visit that same day. I learned early on with my first born my doctors really didn't do anything for my son's cold other than advising Tylenol and motrin. Fun times. As each baby came along and we began to put in our fair share of sleepless nights with sick little ones we also began a more clean and healthier lifestyle. And that didn't just mean changing the contents of our fridge and pantry but also our medicine cabinet. I'd like to share some things we use as a family that have helped us stay home from the doctors a whole lot (in fact, other than my two middle children's febrile seizures, I can't really remember a time we took them to the doctors for anything but a well visit). badger rub. This is our favorite product and I try to send it to people in get well packages with some tea. We have been using this for a good two or three years now and each tin lasts about a year for a family of 6-- so yes, it costs 10 dollars but it is worth every penny. We rub it on our chests for colds and stuffiness and also on our feet. Yes, we rub it on our feet at night and wear socks. And it works wonders! We actually like this so much we have become "badger tin" addicts as my husband calls it and keep our nightstand loaded with all sorts of their aromatherapy products.
