Stock An All-Natural Medicine Chest for the Entire Family @PennHerb #BugBand @iHealthLabsUS
With school in full swing for my boys, I started thinking about getting ready for the winter cold & flu season. In order to be prepared I decided to put together an all-natural medicine chest! Let’s talk about how I stock it.
Stock An All-Natural Medicine Chest for the Entire Family
To have a great stocked medicine chest you of course have to have staples like an accurate thermometer and top brands that harness the power of nature and support the body’s natural defenses as we head into the fall & winter seasons. In this post I want to share with you three products that I can not be without.
The thing that worries me the most whenever my boys get sick is fevers. My mom always laughs at me because if I feel that my boys are even a little warm, I run to get my thermometer. I don’t care if they have any other symptoms or not, if they feel warm they’re getting checked with the thermometer. My favorite type of thermometers are the infrared no-touch ones. I think the iHealth Infrared No-Touch Thermometer is amazing! While I personally don’t own one, my friend has one and I absolutely love it! All of it’s great features really want me to get one. And I think it would be a great addition to any medicine chest.
Think about it…when fever sneaks up on your child in the middle of the night, the last thing you want to do is disturb your little one! With advanced no-touch infrared technology, you get an immediate reading without ever having to try to tuck it under your child’s tongue, place it in his/her ear, or rub it across his/her forehead to gain an accurate reading. Plus, you get your little one’s temperature instantly, as results are ready in just one second. Simply hold, aim and press… and a simple vibration lets you know it is done. With a backlight for nightime reading, this is definitely a parenting game-changer!
Another great company that has amazing products is Olbas Herbal Remedies. They were generous enough to recently send me four of their great products. I have always been a fan of menthol nasal inhalers. Whenever I have colds, this is my go-to product. So I was excited to see that Olbas had sent me a couple of their Olbas Inhalers.
I have been suffering for a cold, so I opened one up and gave it a try. I have to tell you that I absolutely loved it! If you’ve never used a menthol nasal inhaler or don’t know what it is, basically it’s a plastic tube containing an herbal formula (can be a combination of menthol, oils of peppermint, cajeput and eucalyptus) with a hole in the top so you can breathe it into your nostrils. You just have to take a whiff of that tube into each nostril and you get (in my case) refreshment and/or allergy relief. Whenever my head is congested, I use it and it clears my nasal passages and gives me a refreshing mental boost instantly.
The second product I received of theirs is the Olbas Oil. This is such a great product, well known for its use in massage, Olbas Oil tends to stimulate circulation at the surface of the skin. It opens up the pores and provides a comfortable warm and cool feeling in the muscles and joints. I have already used it on two separate occasions. The first as a massage oil during one of my Fibromyalgia flare ups. And the second two days ago when my little guy was congested. At bedtime I simply sprinkled 8 drops on a Paper towel and tucked it inside his pillowcase. It helped sleep so much better, than the previous night.
I also received the Olbas Pastilles
and Lozenges. I haven’t had the chance to give these a try, but after trying out the other Olbas products I am hopeful they will be just as good.
Keep the entire family healthy during the Fall and Winter season with Olbas Herbal Remedies! Whether suffering through seasonal allergies or cold, the Olbas Aromatherapy Inhaler helps children & adults breathe easier with the pocket-sized, portable, all-natural inhaler. Or, soothe stuffy sinuses with just a simple drop of Olbas Aromatherapy Oil on a tissue to help everyone breathe a little easier! The essential oils in Olbas are extracted from the traditional medicinal plants of Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Cajuput, Wintergreen, Juniper Berry and Clove. Please check out the all-natural Olbas Oil, Olbas Pastilles, and Olbas Lozenges to help remedy coughs and colds.
If you follow my blog then you may know that we are big fans of BugBand products. We are especially fans of their bands that glow in the dark, check out that review here. We have used their bands to keep mosquitoes away this past summer and now in the fall when my son plays soccer. I recently learned about the BugBand Towelettes, and can’t wait to get my hands on these and give them a try!
The BugBand Towelette is a very handy, easy-to use method of applying Geraniol DEET-FREE insect repellent for heavy duty insect protection. Easy to tuck in a backpack or sports bag, the towelettes are lightweight and take up very little space! Safe and effective, the towelettes allow for exact application of Geraniol lotion on exposed skin. They’re ideal for using around your face or neck without over-applying. The towelettes can be folded and stored in the foil container for future use. Safe for the entire family, even pets!
These are three products that would be perfect to include in your all-natural medicine chest. I know I will be adding them to mine. Have you tried any of these products yet? What products do you keep in your medicine chest?
