Here you will find some favorite tips and easy recipes.
Fever management in Children - Reducing Body Temperature
Our family is successfully using Peppermint oil to manage fevers and that over all feeling of being hot. If someone has a fever, we use Peppermint oil on the soles of the feet, as well as spray the back of the neck and knees with diluted Peppermint Oil water. This not only makes you feel better, but we have personally seen the fever reduce itself by 2-3 degrees in a short amount of time, as it reduces your body temperature. No over the counter fever reducers were needed.
This tip can also be useful to reduce your body temperature when you find yourself in a hot environment, like waiting in line outside of an event. Just spray the back of your neck and knees with Peppermint Oil water, also applying to the soles of your feet if possible. You should feel relief almost immediately!
Monsters Be-Gone Spray
