As a working mother I am always on the go, my days are filled and I can be so buys at times. But that is ok, I have a hectic life but I love my life and I would have it no other way. But even busy super moms like me get sick. And when I get sick boy do I ever get sick! Ugh. I am down for the count, and all I want to go is rest and have some of my Mammas homemade chicken soup and my box of Kleenex. And do you know who I usually get my cold from? Hmm? My daughter is in 2nd grade and it seems like she catches ever cold that each child in her class comes in with so we are always stocking up on Kleenex tissues.
I am a big proponent of natural care for colds when I am sick and for my daughter as well. Here are a few items that always work for my family, and they have been working for many families for many years
Natures vitamin, make sure to hydrate drink orange juice. I enjoy tea with lemon, it is always a great help when I am sick.
A Nasal Rinse
The nasal rinse is always helpful. My husband swore by it when I met him, I however was always… well honestly grossed out at the thought of the Neti Pot. But my cold was so bad once I gave and tried it out. It was amazing, natural and easy to use. It was not as bad as I thought, and I could breathe better soon after using it, a miracle worker
Warm Mist Humidifier for Relief of Cold & Flu Symptoms. This humidifier boils water to a pure steam vapor, this helps you to breath more easily and can sooth sore throats.
And last but not least,…. My handy dandy..Secret weapon.. not really a secret though.....
Kleenex is the best tissues ever. A Kleenex Share Pack is just what everyday people need for their colds, this is a big box of tissues that will last you through that cold. Because there isn’t much worse than running out of tissues at the wrong time.. Napkins, paper towels or toilet paper will not do and resorting to them in an emergency usually ends up with a red painfully sore nose, don’t run out. We have a nice stockpile of Kleenex in out basement. I seem to pick up a box each time I am out shopping just in case. We want to show our daughter there are a lot of great things to share in life and germs are not one of them!
Sure there may be other natural remedies, but these are my favorites. Do you have any natural remedies you use when you’re sick, and do you stock up on the Kleenex like I do?
Did you know that Kleenex has a Spanish site as well? And that Kleenex has a great Care Pack? The Care Pack (which includes a variety of items) would be great to send to a sick neighbor, or to the troops. It has just what you need to feel better.
