If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know we're responding to illness in the family, and it doesn't seem to matter, younger or older, it requires almost all my attention and energy to meet the needs of bodies sprawled on beds and sofas.
Looks like we're just in the thick of a respiratory virus.
I've lately been a little bit of an "Amish", hippie, granola, edgy, alternative momma to varying degrees.
If something occurs naturally in the created world, and has centuries of anecdotal and now research validated effects for the relieving of symptoms and aiding in healing, I'm certainly reading up on it, and possibly adopting the practice at our farm.
That's not to say that I don't use modern pharmacological helps as needed.
But, this time, as my stash of supplements, essential oils, and ingredients for healing foods has incrementally grown I have the resources to respond "naturally" to what ails us.
And, it appears that most of these remedies will prove more frugal than a trip to my nearby health, beauty and seasonal decoration store.
Some of them are working great. I'll write about those later in our series about spending and saving cuz' I think they're gonna be keepers.
Comme- ci, Comme ca.
There you have it - my occasionally francophile moment, lacking proper punctuation as I've yet to manipulate my settings to accommodate this occasional flakiness.
Now you have to search my archives to see how often I do it!
