I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
The scariest time for me as a mom is when I hover over my kids’ beds listening to them struggle to breath through clogged nostrils when they have a cold.
I guess my experience isn’t unique, as this same concern led Dr. Zak Zarbock to create Zarbee’s products – natural remedies for cold and cough.
Ironically, the week I received my package from Zarbee’s, our whole family caught colds one after the other! Even though they’re for kids, Zarbee’s can be used by adults too!
When my kids get colds, my typical remedies include:
- Putting them in the shower for some steam therapy
- Running the humidifier
- Rubbing their chest and feet with eucalyptus rub
- Avoiding dairy to prevent mucus buildup
Zarbee’s has tips for cold and cough, including teaching kids to sneeze into their shirt and to label cups to prevent contaminating others in the family.
Or, if you’re wondering whether to keep your kids home from school or not, Zarbee’s has a handy guide:
They even have remedy for babies ages 2-12 months made with triple-filtered, double pasteurized organic agave nectar, since babies can’t have honey until they’re over a year.
I can make my own natural remedies at home, but truthfully, ours comes out a little too tart for the kids to take. Zarbee’s is a much more convenient, natural option for me, and I recommend them.
What are your go-to remedies to soothe children’s cold and cough symptoms?
