Man this cold season has been bad for our family. This last bought of nasty germs in our house we decided to finally try the Essential Oils with an Oil Diffuser, up our vitamin intake and use some new alternative medications. After all of my medical situations I am a big believer in natural remedies and try anything that may help. I also worked in the healthcare field for many years and know that FINALLY, the doctors have slowed down on over medicating for cold and virus'. In the past they would give antibiotics and medications to treat your symptoms, now they tell you to try over the counter medications before coming to them. I only go to the Doctor when I have exhausted all other options because I really hate being medicated and not feeling "normal".
For the household we used the diffuser with Now Essential Oils. It made the whole house smell amazing but not only did it smell good I do feel like the Peppermint and Eucalyptus Oils really did open us open. I will try other brands because I have heard some pro's and con's on Now Products.
For our grandson we used Hyland's Baby Tiny Cold Syrup and I must tell you that it worked wonders. I have never been so impressed with a cold medication before in my life. He had the worse runny nose on the first day but then it turned to being a congested little nose. He was drooling so much because he couldn't breathe out of his nose. That first day we noticed that he was sick, he was a miserable little fussy pot, but after one night of taking this medication he was like his old self the next day. Even though he wasn't feeling good, he was a lot happier. We gave him Hyland's before nap and again at bedtime and it just did the trick. So for anyone with a small child this is a MUST HAVE!!! We also did a few drops of the Oils (mixed with Coconut Oil) into his bathwater and it seemed to help his congestion a lot.
If you have any information please share your thoughts and remedies!!!!
