Kids' runny noses
It really does depend on why they have a runny nose as to what I'll do about it. If it's a cold, they get homemade vapo rub.. If it's sinuses, we just keep lots of kleenexes around to keep wiping because sinuses just need to drain.
2 tablespoons coconut oil, 3 drops eucalyptus essential oil, 3 drops peppermint essential oil, 3 drops lavender essential oil .. and there's one more essential oil that does the job of the menthol but I don't have it and can't remember it.. It's easier on them than the Vicks which has been known to cause respiratory problems when used very much.
Ooo great reminder, Tabitha.. there is definitely a difference! :) Do you ever use essential oils?
I'm still learning and only have a few-usually my source of knowledge comes from my sister. I have a list of ones I want to get. My goal is to fill our medicine cupboard with essential oils instead of commercial ones. I kept elderberry syrup in the cupboard for colds, gave it to the kids whenever a sniffle came along this winter and we didn't catch the flu. Even forced it down my hubby a few times.
