Remedies for the nursery


When I get a call that someone's child is sick, the remedies that I recommend to start with are pretty standard. Most of the glycerin extractions in my line were formulated when my own children were babies themselves and I needed to treat them for coughs, runny noses, colic, or diarrhea.

A few years ago, I created a "cheat cheat" that I give to my midwifery clients when their baby is born, and I'd love to share it with you here! I hope that this remedy chart helps you when you're up at 3 AM with an uncomfortable, fussy baby and you're not sure what to do!

Of course, I always recommend following your intuition as a mother when it comes to knowing when to take your child to a physician for treatment, but this little chart has helped many of my clients and family members in treating symptoms of illness in their children without the need for antibiotics.
Remember to ALWAYS dilute essential oils before applying them to a baby or toddler! 

Many of the remedies on this chart are the same recommendation for older children or adults as well, we have equivalent capsulated formulas for nearly every glycerin extraction on this list. 

Watch our blog for future posts with detailed instructions regarding alternative therapies such as onion poultices or ginger baths.. or you can always call our office to learn more from our staff! We would love to help you find the right remedies for your family, give us a call at (435) 586-2049 if you have any questions!

    Nancy Mom of 3, depends on the device being used to view the chart. On my pc all columns show up. On my phone the last two don’t show. So must scroll over to see them.
    Growing up we also got the enema.
    And I have given it in my home.

    Best to consult with your doctor before giving any home remedies.

    Good article. Referred many to it.
    The “cheat sheet” is the best. Simple and very helpful! Love it.
    Agree with others who told giving the enema for fevers and flu.
    I also give herbal enema for fever reduction, colds, flu and the constipated child.

    The only issue with viewing the remedy chart is on some iPhones may have to scroll over some to the right. Then can see other two columns.

    A excellent book is Prescription For Nutritional Healing. And book The ABC Herbal Book.

    Use this remedy chart and those two books in my home, and other homes helping a mom, often.

    Blessings

    Thanks for great article. Especially for the list.

    When looking at the remedy list remover to scroll over to the rift to see the other two columns.

    Glad you told of enemas for fever and flu.
    Also helps for colds.

    Every time one of mine has a fever, cold or flu I give him enemas. Helps speed up recovery and he always feels better after getting an enema.

    My mom and aunt did the same when we were growing up.

    Blessings and hugs!

    Great page.
    Love the remedy chart.
    Blessings

    Super great remedy chart!
    It is great!
    Laminate it and sell it. Or put it on hard plastic sheeting. With magnets on the corners to place on refrigerator door.

    I taped my copy to the door.

    I want to have on hand some, or most, of the items listed.

    List as Alternative Therapy for constipation “Enema.”

    Blessings
