The Following Teas Are Effective For Many Childhood Illnesses
• Elder flowers, boneset (bitter), yarrow with peppermint to induce a cleansing sweat
• Catnip/chamomile/rosemary tea to reduce a rash
• Mullein/lobelia, chamomile, or scullcap to relax
• Catnip, fennel, ginger, chamomile and peppermint for upset stomachs

Note: Use probiotics for children's health. Acidophilus makes a big difference in both recovery time and immune response. Acidophilus keeps friendly bacteria in the G.I. tract, especially if the child has taken a course of antibiotics. Use ¼ tsp. at a time in water or juice 3 to 4 times daily.
