My little 2 and 3 year olds have been sick over the last few days. And while they do enjoy chewables, liquid drops, and glycerites, I also love to use fresh or dried herbs with them.
Herbal medicine is something that has been around for centuries and the active constituents found in herbs are actually where a lot of our modern day synthetic medicines have been derived from. When used properly, herbs can have potent and effective properties with no disturbing side effects.
Below, I have shared a few ways that I have successfully been able to get some of these amazing herbs into my kiddos at the right time. If you have a herbal prescription from your ND or herbalist, I recommend trying some of them out!
I hope you find these ideas helpful when treating your sick kids at home! When all else fails, remember the best medicine is a big hug and a giggle from mom or dad. :)
