Miss Phoebe has had quite the cold this week. It breaks my heart. Only wants to be held and has this really raspy baby voice (that's actually pretty cute) and she's so congested! I try and always go the alternative, homeopathic route before trying anything else. I decided to try making my own version of vapor rub. I put on a hot shower, let the steam fill the bathroom, and coated her chest and baby feet with coconut oil mixed with eucalyptus. Not only does it open her sinuses, it also smells dreamy. Try it next time you or your little one has a cold.

natural vapor rub: 1 tablespoon coconut oil + 3-4 drops of eucalyptus oil.

Do you have any natural home remedies you'd like to pass on? So helpful to have a little arsenal in the mom belt.

also... if you're so inclined, i am so honored to be nominated here for the homies! such great company.

  1. I am tucking this one in my back pocket for when Josephine is under the weather. Hopefully Phoebe is on the mend! Nothing sadder than a sick little one.

  2. i also use this method! a bit of olive oil and 1-2 drops eucalyptus and/or peppermint oil in my palm.
    poor babe. hope your little lady feels better.
