~I received Soothie Suckers samples for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
With back-to-school season upon us that often means our children will be bringing home colds within the first few weeks. Kids sure do seem to like sharing germs. Whenever possible I prefer to find more natural ways to support my child’s immune system during these times of increased sickness. I have recently learned about Soothie Suckers and their great tasting, herbal remedies formatted just for children.
The Soothie Suckers’ product line launched with two herbal blends: Immune Support (Orange) and Nasal Support (Grape). These gentle blends were formulated in partnership with the President of the American Herbalists Guild, are sweetened with organic agave nectar and monk fruit and contain no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial ingredients whatsoever.
Nasal Support Includes:
Echinacea – Used by Native Americans and quickly adopted by European settlers, echinacea has become one of the most widely used herbs and is best known for its immune enhancing ability.
Pleurisy Root – Known to be used in North America for more than a thousand years, pleurisy root is most popularly used during the winter season.
Immune Support Includes:
Astragalus Root – One of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine, astragalus is commonly used to strengthen the immune system and boost metabolism.
Mullein – A valued herb used by the Greek Dioscorides over 1800 years ago. It is also said that Mullein is the plant that Ulysses took with him on his legendary voyage.
Thyme – Best known today as a culinary spice, Thyme was grown in monasteries during the Middle Ages and has been used for centuries to promote overall health and well being. It was originally grown in the Mediterranean region and came to North America with the first colonists.
When either of my girls need a little support, I can give them herbal supplements that are tasty, fun and all-natural! Of course if I am not feeling well you betcha I will be enjoying them myself too!
These ice pops bring the ancient wisdom of herbal healing to today’s families in one oz., BPA-free pouches and are blended with a yummy fruit base that tastes great. They are available online at Amazon and Drugstore.com and in several natural foods chains in the Pacific Northwest including Whole Foods, New Seasons, PCC Natural Markets, Chuck’s Produce and more. Have some in the house so you are prepared for those first colds of the school year.
