Flu season is crazy right now. All over Facebook, I see posts about people whose families are being ravaged by this multi day yuck that is circling. Having just begun a new business 6 months ago, my husband and I cannot afford to be sick and miss out on work…and my son leaves for a mission trip in 2 1/2 weeks, so we are no holds barred on the immunity boosting. All my crunchy mama friends have been downing elderberry syrup, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon. The last week or so we’ve been mixing a couple teaspoons into a small shot of juice and I’m hoping this superfood will keep the sickies at bay.
In 2013, my goal was to change over as much of my household and personal care items as possible to natural alternatives. I didn’t want to buy the expensive ones that still use tons of packaging and cramp my budget! I mean low cost alternatives from things I already have around my house. While I made a lot of changes, the one thing I just couldn’t get used to was not having the disposable wipes for the bathrooms and kitchen. I really tried the spray with reusable rags, but it just annoys me for some reason. So, I kept buying the Clorox Green Works ones because they were a more natural alternative. But one day I sat down and went to work to find a reusable option and I found a great one!!!
