Age:Six months and older For Use:Works to ease breathing and release congestion. Scent:Douglas fir and eucalyptus
Product description:An indispensable product - always keep a bottle handy! Instead of exposing your child to potentially damaging over the counter medications, use California Baby’s natural Colds & Flu™ aromatherapy routine when symptoms such as simple congestion and stuffiness appear. Here’s the routine we recommend: Start with a warm soothing Colds & Flu Bubble Bath to help lower temperature and ease muscle aches. Follow with a gentle Colds & Flu Massage to relax the body. Mist sheets, pillows and the air before bedtime with California Baby’s Colds & Flu Spritzer. To keep the aromatherapy action going throughout the night, use our Colds & Flu Essential Oil in a diffuser or humidifier. Important: If you suspect that your child’s cold is more than simple congestion and stuffiness, call your pediatrician.
A note from Jessica, developer of California Baby®:If you are like me and don’t reach for over the counter decongestants at the hint of a stuffy nose and prefer to allow the bug to run its course naturally, but, you want to help it along and be comfortable, California Baby Colds & Flu products are for you. Here’s my strategy when the weather turns cold and everyone around me seems to be either sniffling, sneezing or coughing: I wash my hands often and vigorously; force myself to drink that extra glass of water or green tea; start up on my vitamin regimen (multi, vitamin C, and zinc) if I’ve dropped off; use all the California Baby Colds & Flu products along with theCalifornia Baby Resistance Builder Essential Oil Blend; eat soup and sleep! If that doesn’t do the trick, I head to my homeopathic M.D.’s office and get a homeopathic shot (in the tush!) and add herbs to this regimen. Antibiotics aren’t in my regular vocabulary—I believe in them but not for a simple cold or flu. Can kids take vitamins? My kids have through out their lives, but only on the advice of an M.D. that understands how to use them and how natural health fits into a total health program. Since the FDA recently issued a nationwide Public Health Advisory (January 2008) recommending that cough and cold products not be used in children under the age of 2 because of the risk of serious and potentially life-threatening side effects*, incorporating natural tactics into your life for the simple stuff only makes sense. As always, call your pediatrician to confer on a course of action before trying anything new. For Grownups:
Over-the-counter decongestants can elevate blood pressure and cause drowsiness. Our Colds & Flu™ Blend is an excellent natural alternative to help relieve congestion naturally without the side effects associated with traditional cold medications.
