hand foot and mouth disease....

anyone whos child has it understand the misery of watching your child suffer. my 14 mo old was thrashing on the bed at 2 am. i finally got out a cool damp cloth and put 3 drops each of lavender and peppermint essential oil on the cloth!i wrapped one around his hands and feet! the relief was instant and within 3 min he was sleeping peacefully! my friends tried it and also said relief was instant!

my son woke me up to wrap his feet at 5 am again! i thought that was a good self testimony!

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
