I have two little toddlers and they are so prone to getting sick the moment fall season is here. We know that there is nothing we can do besides going to the doctors getting them checked out and be on meds. This year I hope to get a better handle on it by trying some natural remedies especially since there are so many. So I decided I am going to experiment with one I saw this week by Betsy Babukutty a holistic nurse from NY on her Get Healthy Naturally Facebook page. I’ve seen versions of this but have yet to try it consistently or make a separate jar or it to have often during this season.
Well today I made a jar and its now on my kitchen counter for the 2014 Fall season!
Here’s the original posting and what I used to make my version.
Carrington Farms Coconut Oil from Costco
Local Honey from West Chester, PA – I bought this at our local farmer’s market
Kirkland’s Ground Saigon Cinnamon from Costco
Half a lemon
Penzeys Chinese Powdered Ginger – this one is especially strong but very good. Click here to buy https://www.penzeys.com/online-catalog/china-powdered-1-ginger/c-24/p-1012/pd-s
I filled a quarter of an empty BeechNut glass baby food jar with honey and then added some cinnamon, couple of babyspoon size of coconut oil, half a lemon and a tiny bit of powered ginger. ( I added more after tasting it)
It was clumpy at first since the coconut oil is in lumps but stirred it all together and tasted it to make sure it was not too spicy with the cinnamon & ginger and it tasted great, like a honey cough drop.
So starting today we are going to try and give this little remedy to my family and see what happens! Keep you posted :-)
