Hot Hot baby

My little 2 year old has a fever! Hot Hot fever! Must be a strong virus working through his system. So, what do I do? Well, I am a fan of not treating the fever unless it gets too high because a fever is the body’s natural defense to kill off infection and illness. However, if it reaches above 101.4, I give medicine. And when we hit 48 hours, I will call the advice nurse. I am NOT a medical expert and don’t want to pretend to be one either. In the meantime, I will diffuse Lemon and Lavender Essential Oils which are safe for “ambient inhalation” for his tender age. Lemon and Lavender essential oils are Antibacterial, Antiviral and support the immune system. He will also take epsom salt baths and elderberry syrup for immune support.

Healthy Honeybee

Buzz Buzz Buzz. I’ve always felt like a little bee buzzing around searching, learning, and striving to have a healthier home, healthier kids, healthier meals, healthier habits, and a gracious thankful attitude about everything. My name is Andrea and I am truly a “Healthy Honeybee”. I am a happy busy mom of three and I adore my family. I love to cook, clean, and always try to find more time to sit on the floor and “play” with the kids which really means jump on mommy time. Hubby’s job keeps us moving and starting over every 2-3 years which keeps my inner travel bug alive and my active planner mind always churning. On my webpage and blog, I hope you will buzz along with me learning and striving for having a healthier home and a healthier life. I will share tips, stories, and lots of research about my favorite food recipes, homemade personal care and cleaning products, exercise, essential oils, and more. I hope that you learn, laugh, and find easy solutions to make your life healthier.
