Natural Remedies

Two sick kids and one with pink eye {or purple eye, as he calls it} means lots of herbs are being infused and an arsenal of natural remedies are being handed out.  Here are a couple of our favorites for natural healing::

Camomile Compress for Pink Eye::
Steep 1tsp of dried camomile flowers in 1 cup boiling water.  Wrap in cheese cloth and use flowers as a warm soothing compress or use the tea as an eye wash.

Eucalyptus Salve for Stuffy Noses & Colds::
Mix up a batch of beeswax oil and add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil.  When the salve is cured, rub generously over the bottom of the feet and cover feet with a pair of warm hand knit wool socks.
