3 Must Have Herbal Remedies For Cold & Flu Season
As we're getting closer to sipping on pumpkin spice lattes and watching leaves fall, I think it's the perfect time to talk about stocking up your natural remedy kit for cold and flu season, and the inevitable sniffles. Because you know that once one of your little kiddos gets a cold, it's like a wildfire; everyone gets it.
Stock Your Natural Remedy Kit for Cold and Flu Season
Let's cut to the chase. No one wants to be THAT mom who's racing to a drugstore at 2 AM. Or worse, searching through sold-out shelves and overpriced remedies. So, why not prepare in advance? Let's get your home remedy arsenal locked and loaded for the upcoming cold and flu season.
Why Go Natural?
Let's start by questioning the "what-the-heck-is-in-this-syrup" over-the-counter stuff. Do you even know what's going into those colorful bottles? I'm picky about what goes into my family's bodies, and I'm guessing you are too. Making your own medicine not only saves your wallet but also your peace of mind.
The Magic of Elderberries
The MVP of my natural remedy kit? Elderberries. Right now, they're ripe for picking in my neck of the woods. These little berries are like Mother Nature's candy and cold-busters all in one. Numerous studies have proven that elderberries can tackle over 10 different flu viruses and even fortify cell walls against invasions by viruses and pathogens.
How to Use Elderberries:
- Elderberry Syrup: Mix it in water, drizzle it on pancakes, or just take a spoonful.
- Elderberry Tincture: Great for adults.
- Elderberry Tea: Ideal for a cozy evening.
The Power of Echinacea
Next in line is Echinacea. This powerful herb is not just an antiviral but also an antibacterial and antimicrobial.
How to Use Echinacea:
- Tincture: Works wonders for adults.
- Glycerite: A hit with the kids.
- Infused Honey: Sweeten your day while boosting your immunity.
Turn Up the Heat with Fire Cider
Lastly, let's add some fire to your kit with Fire Cider. It's a tangy, spicy tonic that's basically your immune system's best friend. From acting as a decongestant to improving gut health, this stuff is liquid gold.
How to Use Fire Cider:
- Take it as a shot.
- Use it as a salad dressing.
- Mix it in your morning juice.
In fact, I've got a whole class dedicated to making your own unique Fire Cider. And if you're late to the party, no worries, the class is up for grabs right here for just seven bucks.
So if you've ever felt like cold and flu season is like a recurring bad movie. You know what's coming, but you can never seem to avoid it. But what if you could? What if you could be that mom who's one step ahead, whose kids are happily asking for another spoonful of that magical elderberry syrup? You can, my friend!
So, if you want to keep the nasty cold and flu at bay, join me in my upcoming Fire Cider class or consider hopping into my Medicine Makin' Mommas program. Let's make this fall all about comfort, coziness, and keeping that darn flu away from our doorstep.
