Now, what did I all make?

This is a special order... Hmmm, what is in it? Well, let's go from left to right. The first bottle with the label is a calming soothing oil that can be added to bath water or rubbed on the soles of a sick little one's feet or even used as a diaper rash soother. The second bottle with a dropper is lavender and feverfew tincture. A little goes a long way. Just a few drops added to warm tea or juice for a child over one will help them fight off a fever. It supports the body as it heals itself instead of just masking a fever. For infants a few drops added to a carrier oil like coconut oil and rubbed into the soles of the feet will have the same effect. I always add sock afterwards to keep bedding clean. The wide topped bottle holds arnica and eucalyptus infused oil. It is like a simple homemade "vapo-rub". It can be added to bath water or rubbed on the chest and back when a cold is causing congestion and / or cough. A little dabbed under the nose helps too. The next medium sized dropper bottle holds elderberry and fennel syrup. It soothes coughs and sore throats and plain tastes good. Elderberries have natural ant-viral properties. The largest dropper bottle holds elderberry tincture. It is strong and a few drops go a long way. It can be use to support the immune system on a regular basis or used when you feel illness coming on. A few drops added to any drink or just in your mouth do the trick everyday. A little extra when you are in the throes of say a bad cold or the flu. The tiny little bottles up front hold essential oil blends that naturally support health especially during cold season. One has RC which is a blend of several EOs and frankincense. Drops from this bottle can be added to a little coconut oil or other carrier oil and rubbed on the chest and back and the soles of the feet. It can be diffused or added to bath water also. A little goes a long way. It helps offer relief from congestion and cough. The other bottle holds stronger EOs that help fight infection in all forms. It contains some "hot" oils that absolutely have to be diluted with a carrier oil or they could burn sensitive skin. The EOs contained in it are oregano, lemongrass, rosemary, ocotea, ravinstara, cinnamon bark, and myrhh. I suggest trying one drop of this one at a time with plenty of carrier oil on an adult before a child. It works great but the oregano can be strong for some. I honestly believe it drove strep throat out of my house a few months ago....
