This is such a neat and needed resource! Kate, the author and blogger at Modern Alternative Mama, gave me a copy for my own personal use and I am so excited to be able to share this resource with you!
She has such sage advice on children’s health from the perspective of a mom who desires to keep her kids as NATURALLY healthy as she can. Chapters include everything from 10 Super Foods for Kids (AWESOME chapter, by the way!) to TV & Media Use.
This book is 152 pages of resources you will use every single day. She discusses fevers and rashes, bug bites and bedwetting. There are even kid-friendly recipes!
So, if this is a resource you would like to have in your home, this is the perfect time to buy it!

It seems everyone I know online and in real life has been battling some bug these past few weeks. Most of our crew (myself included) went down with the stomach flu and a few of us had to deal with a cold as well.
Today, I want to share with you a natural home remedy for cough syrup that can be made from items you more than likely already have in your pantry.
Natural Cough Syrup
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp ginger
1 Tbsp honey ( I prefer buckwheat and/or raw)
1 Tbsp vinegar (I prefer apple cider vinegar)
2 Tbsp hot water
Mix all ingredients together in a small cup and sip as needed.
You can also find me at FreeHomeschoolDeals.com today talking about more inexpensive home remedies for the cold season.
In this season of H1N1 and all other sorts of yucky bugs, I thought I’d share a recipe shared with me several years ago. It is your basic old fashioned mustard plaster. (and in case you are wondering…it’s safe for children too!)
10 level TBSP of flour
1 level TBSP of dry mustard
Mix with enough water to form a paste.
Put olive oil on your chest area and then spread the paste on top of that.
Cover with a towel and go lay down and relax. (I prop myself up on pillows so I can breathe easier.)
Leave on for 15 minutes or until skin starts to turn pink (prior to the 15 minute mark). Rinse with mild soap and water. Repeat up to 2 times per day.
It does start to burn after a bit, but nothing unbearable. However, DO NOT try to leave it on any longer than 15 minutes!
We are all finally well here! Praise the Lord! But, I know so many others who are still suffering through with various bugs.
I must admit I am more wary of being out and about in public places than I can ever remember being in years past. So, before leaving me a comment, please be sure and wash your hands thoroughly. ;o)
