that 1 teaspoon of sugar lowers the immune
system by 50%. So with all the holidays of
Halloween, Christmas, and etc. No wonder children
are sick so much in the winter/school year.
|First get enough Rest
|It takes energy to fight an
infection, and that can wear a child (or an
adult) out. When your child’s resting, he’s
healing, which is exactly what he
needs to do.
Let your child watch that favorite video or
television program one more time. Or bring him a
new set of crayons and paper or coloring book.
Even a puzzle can be manageable in bed.
The bed isn’t necessarily the best place to
rest. Fashion something more fun than his bed –
like a tent in the living room or a snug,
pillow-filled area near you.
The best way to survive a virus is to sleep
through it. Make your child comfortable and let
him sleep as much as possible.
|Drinking plenty of fluids helps
prevent dehydration and flushes and thins your
child’s nasal secretions.
Plain water is great, if you can find it
appealing. Try fruit smoothies and other
favorite healthful beverages and ice pops made
from 100 percent juice. For younger ones, 2
months-1 year old, or children who are vomiting,
pedalyte is the best choice of hydrating fluids.
|Breathing moist air helps loosen
the mucus in the nasal passages. Have a
humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer going in
your child’s bedroom when she’s sleeping,
resting, or playing in the room.
Give your child a warm bath in a steamy
bathroom. Let a hot shower run for a few minutes
before getting the tub ready for your child. If
she’s old enough, let her play in the bath as
long as she likes – supervised, of course,
unless she’s old enough to hang out on her own.
For children over the age of 2, adding a few
drops of Eucalyptus
essential oil to the
bath water (or vaporizer) may also help her feel
If it’s not a convenient time for a bath, simply
turn on the hot water in the tub or shower,
close the bathroom door, block any gap under the
door with a towel, and sit in the steamy room
with your child for about 15 minutes. (Bring a
couple of books.)
|If your child’s temperature is
up, it’s a sign that his immune system is
working hard to fight the cold bugs, so it’s
best to let a fever run its course unless he
seems uncomfortable. (The exception: If your
baby is under 3 months and has a fever of 100.4
degrees F. or higher, call your doctor. Fever in
a baby can be dangerous.)
|Give him a bath. A five-minute
sponge bath in lukewarm water can help your
child feel cooler and can lower his temperature.
Keep him hydrated. Your child loses more water
when his body’s fighting a fever, so make sure
you offer him plenty of fluids to keep him from
Apple cider vinegar-soaked washcloth to your a
One remedy I can swear by, is 1 tablespoon of
olive oil, and 3-4 drops of Peppermint
Essential oil, rubbed down the spine and
on the bottoms of the feet. It works to help
bring a fever down.
|Ginger Tea. Ginger has an
antispasmodic property that helps settle down
the muscle contractions in the tummy that
produce nausea. Add a teaspoon of shredded
fresh ginger to 4 ounces of boiling water and
let it steep for five minutes. Serve it to your
child warm or iced, and sweeten it with honey.
Chamomile Tea. Chamomile relaxes the muscle
of the upper digestive tract, easing the
contractions that move food through the stomach
and small intestines; this will relieve spasms
and tummy cramps. Give your child a cup of
chamomile tea (one cup of water per teabag or 1
drop of chamomile
essential oil per cup of water.)
Peppermint Tea. Peppermint tea is also
refreshing and can ease the pain of a tummy
ache. Use 1 drop of Peppermint
essential oil in a mug of hot
water. If your child refuses to drink tea, a
peppermint candy, while not as potent, may
settle her stomach.
Apply Heat. Placing a hot water bottle or
heating pad on your little one’s tummy while
she’s sitting or lying down should relieve some
of the pain. Heat increases the blood flow to
the skin surface, which can diminish the
perception of pain coming from deeper in the
|Drink plenty of water.
Add a drop of peppermint
essential oil to a small amount
of coconut oil and rub it on their forehead
(avoid getting close to eyes.)
Apply ice. Wrapping several ice cubes in a dish
towel will help soothe your child’s head pain
(never place ice directly on his skin because
it’ll burn.) To keep the towel-wrapped ice from
slipping, press it against his forehead or
temples and secure it with a bandanna tied at
the back of his neck.
|DIY Heating Pad. Instead of
buying a heat wrap, make one by filling a sock
with uncooked rice and tying it closed
with a string. Microwave the sock for one minute
or until warm, and place it wherever your child
has pain. When it cools off, microwave it
again. You can also freeze the rice-filled
sock to use as a cold pack. * Option add a drop
essential oil blend to help ease the pain.
Try massaging your little one’s aching neck and
shoulders with a few drops of No Mo Pain
essential oil blend mixed in olive oil.
|Coughing helps your child breathe
better by clearing mucus from her airways, so
don’t try to stop it. Nonetheless, all that
hacking can leave your kid’s throat irritated.
Try one cup of boiling water and a drop of eucalyptus
essential oil and carefully inhale will help
clear the airways of mucus.
|Provide sweet relief. Recent
studies show that honey is better than cough
medicine for relieving coughs and helping a sick
child sleep better. Give half a teaspoon to
children ages 1 to 5 years and one teaspoon to
kids ages 6 to 11. But never give honey to
babies younger than 1; it can cause a rare and
sometimes fatal illness called infant botulism.
|Honey and lemon juice. Lemon
dries up congestion and honey provides a
soothing coating. Mix together a tablespoon of
each, microwave for 20 seconds until warm (not
hot), and have your child swallow the mixture a
teaspoon at a time. Caution: Honey is not safe
for babies under 1 year.
If your child is old enough (usually school age
or older) gargling with salt water is a
time-honored way to soothe a sore throat. It
also helps clear mucus from the throat. Simply
combine 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm
water and stir. If your child doesn’t mind the
taste, a squirt or two of fresh lemon juice can
be a soothing addition. Aim for gargling three
or four times a day while your child is sick.
|You may be going through a lot of
tissues, but all that mucus helps wash the cold
virus out of your child’s nose and sinuses.
Don’t panic if you notice his mucus changing
from clear to yellow to green: It’s a sign that
his immune system is fighting off the virus; it
doesn’t mean he needs antibiotics.
Saline nose drops are better than any medicine
you can buy for loosening up mucus. You can
purchase saline solution at any pharmacy or make
your own by mixing 1/2 teaspoon of table salt in
8 ounces of water. Make up a fresh solution
every day and keep it in a clean bottle. Use a
clean dropper to put drops into the nose. Water
can also be dripped in using a wet cotton ball.
For the younger child who cannot blow his
Place 3 drops of warm water or saline in
each nostril. (If your child is younger than 1
year old, use only 2 drops at a time and do 1
nostril at a time). After 1 minute use a soft
rubber suction bulb to gently suck out the
For the older child who can blow his nose:
Use 3 drops in each nostril while your
child is lying on his back on a bed with his
head hanging over the side. Wait 1 minute for
the water to soften and loosen the dried mucus.
Then have your child blow his nose. This can be
repeated several times for complete clearing of
the nasal passages.
Prop her up. Elevate your child’s head with an
extra pillow at night so mucus can drain. For
babies, raise the head of the crib mattress by
placing a wedge or pillow under the mattress.
essential oil can also provide
congestion relief. Add a few drops to a bath or
to a humidifier, or mix with coconut oil and
massage the “vapor rub” into your child’s chest,
neck, and back. Don’t put on broken or sensitive
skin or apply it to your child’s mouth or nose,
around her eyes, or anywhere on her face.
|And finally, don’t forget the
chicken soup! Doctors at the University of
Nebraska Medical Center, found evidence that
chicken soup contains anti-inflammatory
properties that may help prevent a cold’s
miserable side effects. Chicken soup also helps
you to stay hydrated, which is key to recovery.
So have your kids eat up and feel better!
|The Benefits of Tea
Tree Essential Oil
tree oil is a very unique oil that
contains a wide array of properties for helping
with many ailments. Whether you are in pain or
your skin is acting up, this oil can help.
|Acne - You can
stop acne in its tracks with the use of tea
tree oil. This helps to treat blemishes,
but it does not strip the natural oils from the
skin so it does not cause dryness. This is an
ideal alternative to peroxide for those with dry
skin. Simply put a little of the oil on a cotton
ball and treat the blemishes.
|Ear aches -
Earaches can be quite painful and they make it
hard to concentrate during the day and sleep at
night. Warm two tablespoons of olive oil then
add 3-5 drops of tea tree, but be extremely
careful not to make it hot because you do not
want to burn yourself. Simply rub the mixture
behind the ear on the ear bone and repeat as
necessary throughout the day.
|Kill Mold And Mildew
- When mold and mildew start to build up, they
can be hard to tackle. As soon as you notice
these in your home, take some tea
tree oil to treat the problem. Mix a few
drops of tea
tree oil with a cup of apple cider vinegar
to create your own mold and mildew killer.
|Boils and Blisters
- These are uncomfortable, but you can shorten
how long you deal with boils and blisters with
tree oil. Cleanse the area where you will
put the oil with soap and water, gently dry the
area and then drop a few drops of the oil
directly onto the boil or blister. Cover with a
bandage to keep the oil in place.
|Clean your House
- Not only will this oil keep your skin clean
and fresh, but it works for your house too. You
can use this oil to make a natural all-purpose
cleaner. Take two cups of water and two
teaspoons of tea
tree oil and mix these together in a spray
bottle. It will clean all surfaces without
|Prevent Nail Fungus
- If you have athlete’s foot, fungus on a nail
or eczema, this oil works well to treat it by
killing the associated fungus. Thoroughly clean
the affected area, apply the oil directly to the
affected area and prevent further fungus growth
by putting a cornstarch on the area after the tea tree oil
- Few things are more annoying than being bitten
up by bugs when you are trying to enjoy some
time outdoors. Create a repellent by combining
one quart of water and 15 drops of tea
tree oil. Put this in a spray bottle and
spray yourself periodically to keep the bugs at
- You can use this oil to cleanse your laundry
so you can ditch the expensive, chemical
detergent. It will keep your laundry soft and
give it a very fresh scent. If you accidentally
leave clothes in the washer too long, do a quick
rinse in the washer with a half teaspoon of this
oil to eliminate the musty smell.
|Fresh Scent -
Unpleasant odors happen and you can use this oil
to eliminate them. Create a water and tea
tree oil mix and put it in a spray bottle.
When you notice areas with unpleasant odors,
grab your bottle and spray the area a bit.
Things like litter boxes and diaper pails can be
sprayed with this to eliminate odor
- This is a very uncomfortable skin condition
and for some people, prescription treatments are
just not enough to keep symptoms under control.
Take one tablespoon of clove
oil and 10 drops of tea
tree oil and mix these together. You can
gently massage this mixture into your skin up to
three times a day to alleviate your symptoms.
- This condition can cause intense itching, but
this oil can help to soothe this. Take a couple
drops and apply it directly to the affected area
up to three times daily. Mix this with clove
oil if your skin is sensitive.
|Soothe a Sunburn
- Minor sunburns can be painful and cause
stinging so you want to soothe them so that you
can get some relief. This oil helps to take the
sting out and you can make a mixture to apply to
the affected area. Mix one drop of tea
tree oil, one tablespoon of coconut oil
and one drop of lavender
oil to make a soothing paste.
- Warts are unsightly and you do not have to
live with them. Both in the morning and at night
before bed, put two drops of this oil right onto
the wart. You can cover it with a bandage to
keep the oil in place during the day and while
|Have A Better Dental Check-Up and
Clean a Tooth Brush -
Using just a drop or two of
Tea Tree and your regular tooth paste,
helps the health of your teeth overall.
You would be amazed if you knew the germs that
stick to your toothbrush. Keep it sterilized by
putting two drops of this oil on the brush, rub
it around with a clean finger and then rinse
- Mix some baking soda in a small bowl with
enough hydrogen peroxide to make a paste.
Use a scrubby sponge to scrub the mess
away. If you have sensitive skin you may
want to wear rubber gloves. Try this on
rust stains, soap scum and dirty grout lines.
Just choose the
beginning letter of an ailment to find a remedy that
|Got A Sinus Infection? Try these
|Inflammation and congestion of
the sinuses – known collectively as a sinus
infection – can have a wide variety of causes
including indoor and outdoor airborne allergens,
as well as dietary irritants like dairy, gluten,
and artificial additives.
|Treat the Symptoms -
Though it is always more important to cure the
underlying sickness rather than treat the
symptoms, let’s face it: When you have a sinus
infection, your number one concern is feeling
better. So before you try to focus on
boosting your immune system and removing the
causal factors of your sinus infection, let’s
work on treating the symptoms.
|Hydrate - Drink plenty of
water, no sugar added juices, clear broth, and
hot tea. These fluids will help to thin
out mucus and help to drain it from irritated
sinuses. Avoid drinking alcohol, caffeine,
and sugary beverages, as well as from
smoking. All of these substances will
dehydrate your system causing mucus to thicken
and clog already inflamed airways.
|Dissolve Excess Mucus -
Spicy foods such as cayenne pepper or
horseradish can be mixed with apple cider
vinegar and lemon juice to create a mucus
|Face Pressure Points - For
temporary relief of closed nasal passages when
none of these other options are available to
you, try a quick face massage.
|Steam - Break up thick
mucus with a few drops of Eucalyptus
oil in hot water. With your face
down over the water, drape a towel over the back
of your head and inhale the steam.
|Grapefruit seed extract
(GSE) is a natural antibiotic made from grinding
dried grapefruit seeds and pulp into a fine
powder. When administered in nasal
spray form, GSE helps to clear out mucus
and may prevent other microbial contaminants
from taking root in weakened and inflamed sinus
|Turmeric root contains the
natural anti-inflammatory curcumin, this spice
is also an anti-oxidant. When combined
with spicy ginger root and brewed for hot tea,
this combination can help loosen mucus from
clogged nasal passages, alleviate sinus
pressure, and make you feel better all
around. Ginger root also has the added
bonus of calming an upset stomach – a frequent
side-effect of excessive nighttime sinus
|Two or three tablespoons of raw,
unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar added to a cup of
hot water or tea taken three times daily will
help thin out excessive mucus relieving
congestion an sinus pressure. Mix with
lemon and honey to taste.
