Herbs for Children

As we continue this month on Children's health, today we will look at a few herbs that are helpful to children.

Alfalfa has been called the “King of Plants” since it is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals. It has eight essential amino acids and the highest chlorophyll contents of any plant, and it permits rapid assimilation of plant elements. It is is a great nutritional herb for anyone, and because of its mind flavor, children won't be adverse to it.

Catnip is wonderful for small children and infants, and useful in pain of any kind. It is a mild nervine and has been used to treat colic, anxiety, and nervousness. Catnip is a traditional cold and flu remedy as well. It helps relieve fevers by inducing sleep while producing perspiration without increasing the heat of the system.  It can also be used to treat diarrhea. This harmless remedy may be taken freely.

Chamomile  helps to relieve restlessness, teething problems, and colic in babies, and is also great for treating stomach aches in children. Research has shown that the herb depresses the central nervous system, which relaxes the body and induces sleep.  Chamomile is an excellent digestive aid and contains strong anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties, and is said to help with pain and headaches. It is mainly used as a tea.

Elderberries  contain compounds that inhibit the enzyme flu viruses from penetrating our cell membranes and also prevents the virus from invading respiratory tract cells. Taken early enough, as a tea or tincture, you may be able to head off an upcoming illness before it becomes a full-blown flu. Elderberries are especially good for bronchitis, colds, coughing, and influenza.  

Ginger  is a great tasting herb that is mainly used to help digestion.  It is also useful to reduce nausea and vomiting that children often have. It is anti-inflammatory, and boosts the immune system, and can be used to helps eliminate toxins and break a fever.  Ginger's pleasing taste makes it appealing to children as well as adults.

Peppermint is an excellent remedy for chills, colic, fevers, dizziness, gas, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, and influenza.  A general stimulant, this herb quickly diffuses itself throughout the body and brings back its warmth. It also cleanses and strengthens the entire body. A cup of strong peppermint tea can help a headache, and it will strengthen the nerves instead of weaken them like drugs.
We have these wonderful herbs in bulk as well as in mixes and essential oils.  Come stock up so you'll be ready when the need arises.
