Natural Remedies: Kids

Daily Supplements: Vit C, Nordic Naturals DHA (fish oils)

Bumps and Bruises: Arnica or arnica cream/stick

Headache: lavender oil in a diffuser, belladonna

Common Cold: vit C, kid's echinacea, tea tree and eucalyptus oil in the shower. I have the kids avoid dairy and citrus since both are mucus producing. I also like Boiron's coldcalm. I use a humidifier in their room at night. For Baby's I like Hyland's C+ Cold.

Thick Yellow Mucus: Boiron Pulsatilla

Cough: Olba's cough syrup (we refer to this a honey syrup)

Asthmatic Cough/Wheezing: lobelia really opens up the bronchial tubes and passageways

Lice Prevention: Use California Baby With Tea Tree oil, or add tea tree oil to your shampoo of choice

Pinworms: coconut oil based suppositories, externally use calendula ointment or California Baby diaper cream (it has zinc oxide which helps kill the worms)

Red Itchy Rectum: Use children's acidopholis as it may be a yeast problem

Croup: Boiron Spongia, lots of steam in the shower daily

Eczema: externally use florazone and bathe daily to remove any irritants from skin (our son had eczema off and on, turns out he has a dairy allergy. His rash was like smooth sandpaper. The bumps were very tiny and were mostly present on his belly and bum).

Rash, Skin Irritation: Boiron Apis

Tooth Pain: Use clove bud oil to numb inside the mouth

Teething Pain: chamomile tablets or Hylands Teething tablets/gel

Vomiting: Boiron Nux Vomica

Diaper Rash: for Prevention mix liquid grapefruit seed extract in a spray bottle with water, spay on diaper area each diaper change. I like California Baby or Weleda brands for diaper rash.

Bug Bites: Boiron Bite Care

Scratches and Scrapes: clean with soap and water, use colloidal silver spray, cover with a bandage
