Okay, moms (and dads-I don’t want to leave anyone out!). If your kiddos are in school or around other kids at all, it’s time to talk about “the crud.” I’ve got my go-to, “I don’t have time for this so get well NOW” recipe for you to kick being sick naturally.
Kick Being Sick Naturally
I know that the change of seasons causes many of us (myself included) major issues. The weather is all over the place, hot to cold and cold to hot. If you’re like me, your sinuses are great (albeit annoying) barometer. And if you have kids, it’s worse. I know new kids at school make your kids sick.
Being Sick SUCKS
I know some parents send their kids to school to mess up your perfectly healthy (and not-so-calm house). Those people seriously need to have their heads examined. I just don’t get the logic behind sending your OBVIOUSLY sick child to school.
Where could I possibly be going with this? Well, Smalls started school 2 months ago and last week he came down with the crud: a sore throat, cough, fever, chills, runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, congestion, sour stomach, headache, over-tired, and whiney.
As soon as I saw the very FIRST sign of snot, I grabbed my oils. Even Ish (who pretends not to like my oils and thinks that I’ve seriously lost my mind with all of the new things I’ve been trying to be more natural) was on board, oiling himself up to prevent it from spreading.[fancy_box id=2]So you’re interested in Essential Oils?

Apply Early & Often…Trust Me On This
The one thing you have to remember is to apply your oils early and apply them often. This combo had my kid completely fine in 48 hours.
Literally, two days of the sick was all we had and he slept great. Did I mention that NEITHER Ish or myself got sick? Now that is enough proof for me! Here’s what I did:
- Thieves* on the feet with socks to help support a healthy respiratory system.
- Lemon* on the throat to help soothe and support the respiratory system.
- Peace & Calming* in Smalls’ diffuser to help him sleep.
- RC* on the chest and diffused in the living room to support a healthy respiratory system.
- Lavender* on the temples and back of ears to help support a healthy nervous system.
- Peppermint* under the arms and on his belly button to help make him more comfortable.
- Di-Gize* on the belly for an to promote a healthy digestive system.
*because he’s little, I dilute everything with coconut oil, at approximately 3:1 to 5:1. With oils you don’t need very much, making your bottles go a long, long way.
Still don’t believe me?

Essential oils (Therapeutic Grade From a Reputable Source) Are Completely Chemical-Free. Plus, essential oils do not destroy your liver or mask symptoms. And it may prevent everyone around you (or your kid) from getting sick, too (I have yet to get knock-me-out sick since I’ve been using my oils!) or continue spreading the bug around your house a thousand times.
Let’s Be Honest
Who really wants to waste a week being up and down with your sick kids? Or missing work because your kids can’t go to school? Nope. Nobody’s got time for that.
I know you don’t. I need my sleep just as much as you do! You just have got to trust me. I’m here because I was a complete skeptic and now I’m a complete believer.
These oils work. And I don’t say that lightly. I’ve been using them consistently for over 6 months, and I have yet to need to find an emergency fix. I use them to support everything from our immune systems to promoting grounding and sleep.
Don’t Believe Me?
Before I started using oils, a cold meant that we would ALL take turns being sick. It would morph, and the symptoms would get worse as we passed them around.
Before oils, I literally wouldn’t be able to breathe laying down, even through my mouth. Being sick totally SUCKS. That’s what made me try oils.
I knew that there had to be a better solution out there. And there is. Your body doesn’t want all of the chemicals that we keep putting into it. It wants to heal itself but is hindered.
Normally, a bug like this would have taken 7-10 days EACH to clear. 48 hours and only one of us? I’d call that a HUGE WIN!
