When I first began to get my feet wet in natural, herbal, and essential oil remedies, my daughter was about 4 months old. Something inside of me desired to be able to pioneer woman this thing and heal my daughter’s ailments naturally. I’m not against western medicine, but I wanted another option. It grew and grew inside of me to the point that I was so intrigued and even excited to be able to have a few minutes to keep up with my research and studying! I was trying all sorts of little remedies. Some of them were just hysterical (envision an INTENSE garlic congestion rub that caused my husband to begin calling our daughter a breadstick, lol). But it was all part of the journey! I stuck it out. Not every God dream looks pretty and packaged at first, you just have to stay faithful and not let fear of anything or anyone get in the way. I am no expert, but I have learned quite a bit. I sat down with Linda Lucas, a certified herbalist and an amazingly fierce lady that not only owns her own alternative/natural healing shop, but is passionate about not only seeing others healed naturally, but educating them about how our bodies work and what the Word of God says about our bodies. While I could sit and talk to this info packed little lady for hours, I came in with a mission to put down on paper some basic natural healing steps for your most common sicknesses that she has taught me over the past 3 years and my own journey experiences of natural healing and oils. And I can say from experience, it works! So sister, what’s mine is yours! If you’re interested in setting up a meeting with me about anything below, your personal health lifestyle, incorporating oils into your life, or any other related topics, go to the My Sisters Keeper Tab!

**Remember ladies, not all oils are created equal! There is a huge difference in doTerra oils and an oil off Amazon or over the counter. doTERRA oils are the only ones I stand by and can vouch for and would not vouch for any others, especially for using internally.

Does your little have the usual “common cold” symptoms? Runny nose, slight fever, cough, etc? No worries mama, let’s kick this sucker outta your little before it turns into something more! Remember, a cold is a VIRUS. Antibiotics will do nothing for this. It will only eat away the good bacteria in your little’s gut and make it more difficult for their immune system to fight.

 

On Guard EO– I diffuse this oil in the air to clean it constantly from germs that are airborne. I rub the oil on the bottoms of feet morning and night. I also have my On Guard hand soap on every sink so that hands are clean without chemicals being added to our skin. Heck no. If I come into contact with someone who is sick, I pop an On Guard beadlet in my mouth and say a quick prayer. #aintnobodygottimeforthat

 

Breath EO – We love this oil. You can either use the stick rub or 1-2 drops on chest and bottoms of feet for congestion and cough.

 

Astragalus –Herb that feeds and nourishes the immune system. And is anti viral! Take these drops as recommended on bottle. 3 times a day till well.

 

Rose hip –  This is the bulb on a rose. Highest plant source of vitamin c. Vitamin C helps support their immune system as well. It cuts/thins mucous so their body can eliminate mucous via the bowels vs staying in their sinuses and possibly into their chest. 3 times a day till well.

 

Nettles Eyebright – This is gold ladies. I always have a bottle on hand. This herb dries up mucous naturally. Anytime I see a runny nose coming on, I give this immediately to dry it up. 3 times a day till well.

 

Probiotics – dairy/soy/gluten free. 3 times a day if sick. I give this to my little once every day when she’s well just to support her gut. Your immune system is in your gut! The probiotic keeps the body alkaline, the body gets sick in an acidic body. This one is inexpensive and lasts me about 3 months.

 

***If mucus has set too long and it becomes an infection, (you see color in their mucous and its no longer clear), add:

Oregon Graperoot – A natural antibiotic without destroying good bacteria. 3 times a day till well.

The dreaded flu. It’s so interesting to me how we call winter time “flu season”. Let’s gang up together and be smart ladies. How about we do what we do for every other physical season that comes around, and prepare ourselves! I know that I must start pulling out coats and gloves.

Fever – Rub 1-2 drops of peppermint oil mixed with some fractionated coconut oil across their forehead, down their spine, and on bottoms of feet. I do this every 15 minutes until fever comes down. Peppermint is a natural cooling oil.

Also Pure Encapsulations Probiotic 123 is great as well if you have a baby 1 and under.

 

***If mucus has set too long and it becomes an infection, (you see color in their mucous and its no longer clear), add:

Oregon Graperoot – natural antibiotic without destroying good bacteria. 3 times a day till well.

Add oscillococcinum, tastes sweet like candy! Safe for 2 years and up. (ok for 1 year olds). Takes care of flu symptoms! Temperature for kids, keeps fever at ok level that can still fight virus. When they have a fever, do a warm bath, skin absorbs water!

Yuck, Yuck, Yuck. You know exactly what I’m talking about.

Here are some key steps, but remember try not to let you little get dehydrated.

  • Baths are important. Especially when everything is coming out of places you had no idea were there. Add a few drops of On Guard to every bath and let those anti bacterial/immune boosting oils do wonders.
  •  

  • I use my Restful Blend (5-10 drops each of Serenity, Lavender, and Balance) up and down the spine, bottoms of feet, and on chest, to help calm and soothe.
  •  

  • Colloidal silver for adults and children, 1.4 tsp/tsp, kills virus, bacteria, food poisoning, yeast. Takes care of it. BAM.
     

  • Homeopathic meds for diarrhea and vomiting vary on the severity. Call Creative Healing, 256-535-4447. She’ll hook you up! If you are out of town, she can suggest what to take and/or ship to you what you need if you are unable to get them depending on your location.

Melaleuca and Lavender EO – Diluted and rubbed behind and around ears.

 

Willow Garlic oil/ear oil drops – antivira/bacterial/septic, this specific oil helps with pain. Have them lie on their side, put a few drops in and have them hold a cotton ball over it. I let my daughter bundle up and watch a movie with her head in my lap with the infected ear side up so it can sink in as deep as possible. It works so quickly for me that I don’t have to use anything else for the pain.

Our American diets just don’t give our bodies what they need. If you’re not taking any supplements to give your body what it needs to thrive and renew itself each day, I highly recommend it. My family takes the LLV pack from doTERRA and a probiotic, every day. Get plenty of sleep and exercise! Walk around the block. Exchange 30 minutes of wasted social media time with 30 minutes of those at home Pinterest work outs that we ALL have pinned! Make sure you pay attention to the water you drink. The cleanest is water that has gone through reverse osmosis or spring water. Take care of your body sister, you and your loved ones deserve the BEST you.
