Being a stay-at-home-mum, I have come to rely on a lot of common spices and condiments found in my pantry to cure my children of common ailments. Most recipes are age-old that have been passed on for generations – just proving how natural herbs were used to treat diseases before chemically produced medicines came in. Other recipes, I have found through the Internet, over time, to solve a particular problem.
Please note that the suggestions and remedies mentioned below, work for me, or I have found them while conducting my research. Please consult a medical practitioner before following any of the below.
As a mom of two sons, ages 5 and 2, September sends me in panic mode. September brings the start of a new school term after a long summer break and the start of Flu Season.
