Of course, health is super important too! Here’s my best tip: when we feel good, we look good! Try these tips and ideas to treat the flu and other diseases. From young children to older kids and adults, these tips are the best free “prescription medicine”.

These are just general recommendations – always remember to check with your child’s doctor before trying any kids medicine or natural remedies.

  • Hydrogen peroxide is a super handy “must-have” for every medicine cabinet. Not only can you use it with your kids cuts and scrapes – the good news is that there are so many other ways to use hydrogen peroxide we bet you never thought of before.
  • Do your back and feet ache after walking around with a toddler on your hip all day? Use a tennis ball to relieve foot pain – what a brilliant hack!
  • A batch of homemade pedialyte can help sick children bounce back faster from a day in the sun or illness. Make your own in different flavors with a spoonful of sugar to make their taste buds happy! Don’t forget their favorite sippy cup.
  • Sunburns hurt when we get them, but it’s even worse when our kids get red! Use a little bit of  Aloe Vera – freeze the gel (make sure it is 100% AV) and then rub it on your burns. It will feel SO good!
  • Prevention is half the battle to protecting your home from illness. Make handwashing easier for your kids by creating a sink extender. Next time they wash their hands will be so much easier.
  • Save money and chemicals!! Make your own deodorant paste – here’s a good technique that is chemical-free and it works. Use essential oils to scent the paste.

Simply dilute 8-10 drops of one or more of your preferred essential oils into the recipe. Here are the best essential oils for making your own deodorant paste:

  • Tea tree oil (antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties).
  • Clary sage (antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anesthetic relief).
  • Ylang-ylang (prevents appearance of dark underarms and hyperpigmentation).
  • Lavender (soothes and nourishes skin, antifungal, and antibacterial).
  • Bergamot (antimicrobial, antifungal, natural deodorizer, antiseptic).

Ideas for Sick Kids

Struggling to give your child medicine? Here are some easy ways to help you take care of your kid for medicine time.

  • No more needles! Use a baking soda paste to help remove splinters to make your child feel better in minutes. Just put a dab on, cover with a bandaid and scrape the splinter away an hour later.
  • Prevent tummy bugs. When one strikes your home, give out doses of Grape Juice Solution (bad taste here!)  to help protect those who don’t have the bug. Pour it in a small cup next to some juice box. They’ll love it!
  • Diy Rice Water. This is a great way to help rebuild your kids’ electrolytes after they have been sick – it’s such a sweet little treat that it might become their favorite drink.
  • Cavities. Kids are so prone to getting them. Make a batch of homemade toothpaste that remineralizes your teeth. It has no taste of medicine or bitter taste whatsoever!
