Unfortunately, my little guy woke up today with a nasty cough so I decided to brew him up some medicine, the old-fashioned way.
This natural remedy is an infusion of herbs that will treat his chest cold by soothing his cough, loosening his phlegm, and it’s antimicrobial. I prefer this method over conventional medicines because it is pure and effective with less additives. You can use loose leaf herbs, or wrapped tea bags options if you don’t have these dried herbs on hand. I have attached direct links to both options and of course they are certified organic.
Makes an infusion of herbs such as sage, thyme, liquorice, and/or lemon balm. Here’s how:
Infuse the following herbs in boiled pot of water for 10 minutes. Let it cool and give 5 ml to your infant three times a day with either a spoon or a dropper.
