Creating a "Feel Better Basket"
I hate to see my children hurting. But it's also such a privilege that they run to me when they are. In that sacred few minutes, I'm able to offer comfort and nourishment not only for their bodies, but for their hearts.
I recently put together a "Feel Better Basket" full of natural remedies for my children. It lives in our pantry so that when they come to me hurting, I'm ready to comfort them in practical ways. (These are used in addition to our family's daily vitamin routine, which you can find here.)
Here are the most common complaints in our house and what I've included in our "Feel Better Basket" so I'm always prepared (links are Amazon affiliate links):
+ "My tummy hurts": Tummy All Better essential oil roller (roll in a clockwise direction on the belly) + Papaya enzymes
+ "I scraped my knee": clean with saline wash or a damp paper towel, then apply Herbal antiseptic ointment + Manuka honey bandaids
+ "I got a bug bite": Itch Away essential oil roller (apply directly to the bite)
+ "My head hurts": Badger Headache Soother stick (roll on temples, back of neck, wherever it hurts)
+ "I can't sleep": Sleepy Time by Earthley or Leefy Nidra Tart Cherry + Nighty Night essential oil roller (applied on the chest, back of neck, and feet)
+ Just needing comfort: Warmies microwaveable lavender stuffed animal
