As much as I LOVE Fall, I also know what comes along with that. Flu + Colds + Viruses. Now, I am all for modern medicine and I vaccinate my kids [zero judgement from either side of this hot topic!] BUT I also dabble in alternatives for healing my kids. I am also an "oiler" so I feel like I take the best of both worlds and tailor it to what my family needs.
As much as I LOVE oils, I don't believe they prevent 100%. I do, however, believe they create a speedier recovery and lessen the symptoms of these nasty viruses. So what do we do? Immunity boosting.
+ Thieves Roller Balls [ Thieves oil // carrier oil] - We apply it on the bottoms of the kids feet every morning.
+Probiotics & Multivitamins
The gummies have be perfect for the kids. When I first started to research them I got discouraged because it seemed like a long process. I decided to just make them one day and it was SO easy! Here is what it takes:
1/ Heat Elderberry Syrup until it starts to boil - remove from heat
2/Whisk in lemon juice + slowly add the gelatin. Whisk until its smooth.
3/Add liquid to the mold with the dropper and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes.
*I keep ours in a mason jar in the fridge*
