This is the face of a 4 year old who thought it would be a good idea to stick his mouth on a public door handle 🙈🤢

It was the same week I got texts from 4 different friends asking what natural remedies work for kiddos Strep Throat or Hand, Foot and Mouth…so with all that going around I figured we were doomed!! 😷

I went into “Operation: Kill all the Germs” and used some things I know naturally strengthen the immune system…and NO SICKNESS!!! Considering we both have autoimmune issues and used to get sick monthly, it was some serious proof that natural prevention does work!! We’ve both gone 5 months now with no illnesses (and no doctor visits, meds, co pays or missing out on life!) 🙌🎉🙏

If you’re tired of the back to school germs already, there are ways to protect your kiddos and your family 💕 You don’t have to just “deal with it” when it comes to illness, because feeling helpless as a mom stinks 🙈Just let me know & I can type up what all we used and how, if that would be helpful 👍

PS I waited 3 weeks to make this post, just to be sure I didn’t jinx it 😂🤣😂

Natural Ant & Bug Repellent

fullsizeoutput_6ea9So this is kinda gross, but our kitchen was being invaded by ants!! 🐜🐜🐜 Anyone else have an issue with this in the summer?

I didn’t want to spray chemicals near our food 🍏🍒🥒🌮 or in the house where it could get on my son’s skin (or any of our skin really!) Poison to bugs is still poison to us, just on a smaller scale…but it all adds up over time 🙈 Most insecticides kill bugs by poking holes in their stomachs, so it make sense the same thing can happen to us. No wonder we all have so many gut health/allergy/anxiety issues!!

I cut some cotton pads into quarters, then put 1 drop each of pure lemon, peppermint and clove oils on them. After scattering them around the kitchen, we haven’t seen an ant for days!! 🎉🎉🎉 

Have you tried any natural remedies that worked even better than you expected?
