EO Cough Syrup by Vintage Remedies

Our household has never tried this, but the source is trusted.

If you have never taken EO’s internally, or one of these EO’s are new to you, take a smaller dose first to see how your body will react. It is better to take smaller amounts first, when trying something new. Remember when in doubt don’t!

Do not take while pregnant or breastfeeding. For children ages 7+. Do not substitute a different Eucalyptus (E.) for E. Radiata.

For more information on using essential oils to treat ailments, check out  Vintage Remedies Aromatic Medicine Course.

Please note that while these massages can be done on newborns, they require very little pressure! Please be gentle.

To learn more about facial massages and how they can help, check out Dr. Mary Ann Block’s book No More Amoxicillin.

Honey Onion Syrup

When I began my herbal adventures I stumbled across a book by Rosemary Gladstar. In the book Rosemary spoke of a syrup she made one winter of just onions and honey and how she swore it kept her family from getting sick that winter. So I had to try it. While we still got sick that winter, it wasn’t nearly as bad. Since then, this had become a staple in my home!
