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.
