Home Remedies I Brought On Vacation To Keep Us Healthy

I spent the last 2 weeks vacationing in the big land of Texas. ¬†It was an enjoyable time relaxing and taking a break from the computer! ūüôā ¬†When I travel, I bring certain natural remedies with me to be prepared for any illness that may arise.

Home Remedies I Brought On Vacation To Keep Us Healthy

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal silver is a great immune booster. ¬†When we know we’ll be traveling, we take one spoon a day a week before we leave. ¬†This helps build up our immune system for the trip. ¬†We also take one spoon a day while traveling or on vacation. ¬†Not only does this help prevent illness while we’re gone, it also protects against food poisoning, which can more likely occur when eating different foods. ¬†Before I used silver when we traveled, one of my children was sure to get an illness of some kind. ¬†We stay much healthier on vacations when we use this natural immune booster!

Lung Tea


One of my daughters has lungs that get easily irritated and inflamed. ¬†In the past this has led to asthmatic bronchitis and pneumonia. ¬†I have found that if I give her this lung tea at the very beginning of her coughing and/or congestion, she’s better in no time! ¬†Whether they were sensitive to the hotel or Texas air, I don’t know, but 3 of my girls developed congestion on our vacation. ¬†One of them coughed for an hour straight one night. ¬†I gave them all this lung tea and they were better in no time! ¬†It is very helpful to mix half juice and half lung tea so children {or adults} will readily drink this mixture! ¬†You can find the Lung Tea recipe HERE.

Activated Charcoal


Activated charcoal absorbs toxins, poison, viruses and more!  If someone is experiencing a virus, nausea, or loose bowels, I mix 1 tsp. of charcoal in a glass of water and have the patient drink it.  Follow this with a glass of water.  For children, I would give 1/2 tsp. of charcoal.  Charcoal does not have much of a taste, and can be added to juice for children to drink.  Read more about charcoal HERE.

Peppermint Oil


We use peppermint oil for nausea. ¬†If someone’s stomach feels icky, I place 1 or 2 drops on the stomach and have the person breathe in the peppermint aroma. ¬†This almost always calms the stomach and we rarely leave home without it! ¬†My favorite company to purchase essential oils from is Beeyoutiful. ¬†All their oils come in a 1 oz. bottle, making them the best value I’ve found!

Herbal Salve

This is my favorite antibacterial salve for bug bites, wounds, and rashes.  It heals, soothes, kills bacteria, and takes the itch away!

    I always make sure to bring my homemade migraine tincture. It never fails but I will get a migraine on at least one day of vacation. In the past that has meant a full day in bed missing out on all the fun and being miserable. Now? Not so much.

    And this year I will also be bringing Dr. Christopher’s Lower Bowel formula. For whatever reason, traveling gives me difficulties. The Lower Bowel formula should take care of that easily.
