We Caught a Cold

Though a mild case, my children caught a cold that threw me off kilter. I am not accustomed to sick kids and holding them all night long.  Snotty noses just aren’t our norm. We were able to bounce back quickly to easy-breathing nights with the following regimen, consisting mostly of essential oils.

  • Eucalyptus Radiata
  • Peppermint
  • Lavender
  • Thieves
  • Lemon
  • Fennel
  • Colloidal silver
  • Sitting in a steamy bathroom. 
  • Some saline and suction.
  • Cuddling 

Hot and citrus essential oils can be rubbed on the clothes and blankets, or diffused. Mild oils I can apply directly on my kids’ skin without diluting, but everyone is different; try diluting oils when first introducing them to your children.

This is merely a conversation I would share with friends and family, and is not to be construed as medical advice.
