This is a general list of interesting articles or recipes I might find for home remedies and home health care. I am always looking for ways to keep my family and myself healthy and do it in a natural, safe way. Please review my disclaimer.

:: Cough Syrup- If you don’t have essential oils on hand here is a great recipe to try! You can find the original post HERE.
:: Cough Syrup (Essential Oil Blend)- This recipe works great! Multiply it if you want to make enough to store in a jar. I make about 8 tablespoons and store so I have on hand and don’t have to mix every time.
COUGH SYRUP: 1 drop each of Orange, Frankincense, Peppermint & Lemon Essential Oil and 1 tablespoon of raw/pure honey
*Do not give to young children
MAKE YOUR OWN THIEVES OIL! It works amazing! I use it to protect against sickness, disinfect, and healing. Click HERE to view recipe. The author uses DoTerra Oils but I use and recommend Edens Garden, they are excellent quality and much cheaper!
:: Air Freshener/Air Disinfectant- I add a few drops of lemon or lavender to water in a spray water bottle (chemical safe or glass only) and spray around the room. I have sprayed on couch and rugs (always test your furniture before doing so). It is a great, easy and quick way to get your house smelling so fresh and clean! During flu season or if someone is sick in your house. Put a few drops of thieves (see below) blend and water and spray your house down. This stops the virus from spreading person to person!
:: Vapor Rub- 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil (also can substitute Olive or Jojoba Oil), 2 drops Eucalyptus, 3 drops Frankincense, 1 drop Rosemary. You can multiply recipe and make a larger batch. Store in a dark, cool place. Rub on bottom of feet, chest, behind ears and back of neck. Use caution with children under 5.
