Disclosure: This post has been sponsored by Maty’s Healthy Products, however, all opinions on the yuckies and snotties are all my own. As well as my opinions on how incredible Maty’s products are!
Fall would be complete perfection, if it wasn’t for the allergies and yuckies that come with it. It never fails. Each and every fall, the family winds up sick. Thankfully, Maty’s sent us some natural and organic products in their line to try, and they couldn’t have arrived at a better time!
The side effects that accompany most OTC cold/allergy medications are worse than the symptoms I’m already dealing with. Most of them either make me sleepy, cause brain fog and even make my blood pressure go up – making me feel worse. Sorry – but I’m not giving these types of medications to my kiddo and my husband sure can’t function at work all day taking them either.
I know that colds and allergies just have to run their snotty courses – but thankfully we have natural and organic options to calm the symptoms and even get a good night’s rest. Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup has 10 immune boosters in every single spoonful and can be used for kiddos as young as 1 year old. Seriously, there’s nothing in the ingredient list that you don’t KNOW or know how to pronounce! It’s gluten free, dairy free and alcohol free. The honey in the cough syrup really soothes our sore throats and helps calm down a yucky cough.
I put 2 teaspoons of the Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup in my hot tea at night – with a squeeze of lemon. If your kiddo is opposed to taking cough syrup from a spoon (like my kiddo is) then you can do the same for them. They don’t even have to KNOW they’re taking cough medicine! We still had a few coughs here and there…but we both slept through the night without waking up!
Honest truth — this stuff doesn’t taste like cough syrup. At all. You can taste all of the ingredients in each spoonful. It’s very good and such a bonus to sweeten my tea with. With those 10 immune boosters in each spoonful, it’s not only a healthy product for just when you’ve got a cough. It’s a great spoonful of immunity each day! For our immune boosting tea, here’s what we did…
- Fill your favorite tea cup or mug with boiling water.
- Add 1-2 teabags of your favorite tea. Steep for 3-5 minutes.
- Add 1-2 teaspoons of Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup.
- Squeeze in the juice from half of one fresh lemon.
- Stir, and enjoy!
The Maty’s petroleum free Vapor Rub is safe for the whole family as well. Recommended for kids 2 and up. Again, the ingredient list is ALL natural and includes the soothing eucalyptus, peppermint, and wintergreen oils. It feels so good when you’re dealing with tightness and congestion, and helps make breathing easier.
I apply the vapor rub several different ways. For myself, I rub on my chest and neck. I also put a dab behind my ears to relieve pressure and then on the bottoms of my feet before bed, and put socks on. This is an old fashioned tip, that really does work! For my son, I rub it on his chest and back, and on his feet too…before bed. Sometimes, all it takes is removing the lid and taking a good long sniff! Ahhhhhhh. To breathe again!
I just really love and appreciate that I have natural and organic options for my family. Especially for my son. Something to help the whole family breathe better, sleep better, and feel better. Maty’s created their line of products when their daughter, Maty, was born with severe heart defects. They were dedicated to finding and creating natural ways to get healthy.
