The Ultimate Natural Remedies Round-Up
I’ve never been thrilled about using conventional medications, and over the past 7 years my family has transitioned to using mostly natural remedies for any ailment that comes our way.
I want to be clear in that I think there is a time and place for antibiotics and other conventional medications. But our family’s rule of thumb is to always try the natural route first.
I hope the following natural remedies round-up will help keep your family healthy all winter long!

She does have many great posts!

Oh I hope you feel better, and I hope this is helpful!
Wow! This is one complete list! Pinning so I can come back and refer to often. We just survived our first round of the cold and thanks to starting to use some essential oils, we were able to knock it out quickly and naturally!
So glad you liked it!
