Yesterday was the first day of fall and we can certainly tell that winter is on its way today! The air is chilly, we woke up to frost on the grass and as much as I don’t want to say it — my nose is feeling sniffly. Since I know that at least one of us in the family is bound to catch one or more colds this fall and winter season, I am getting prepared by having a few of our favorite cold season essentials on hand. I thought I would share my top 3 must-haves with you!
Tea & Honey
It never fails, when I am feeling under the weather, sipping on a steaming hot mug of herbal or green tea always makes me feel a little bit better. If I have a bit of a sore throat, then I add a teaspoon of clover honey. My daughter always asks for a cup of berry zinger or lemon tea with honey when she has a cold, a non-caffeine variety is best for the kids.
Dry Nose Help
One of the worst parts of the upcoming winter weather, is how dry the air inside our home becomes. There is nothing worse than having a sore, dry nose and a cold at the same time — ouch! Last year, I found relief for my dry nose with Simply Saline solution from ARM & HAMMER™. That’s why I’m happy to share it with you this year! Simply Saline is a wonderful product that truly does help every family member with their dry noses.
I personally have found Simply Saline to be the ideal solution to restore moisture to my dry nose during those arid winter months. I love that it is a drug-free product that our family can use along with any cold medicine that we’re taking, or even along with allergy medication! It’s simply water and salt — which makes it a totally natural and non-addictive solution to dry nasal passages! Several of us have allergies and Simply Saline is also an easy way to flush away the dust and irritants from noses, allowing for clearer breathing. It’s nice to have one product that can both moisturize and irrigate — just make sure everyone has their own dispenser!
Simply Saline is also very affordable, I still like to keep my eye on the ARM & HAMMER™ Savings Center for coupons so I can stock up. The ARM & HAMMER™ Facebook page is also a great place to stop by, or visit the ARM & HAMMER™ website to read consumer reviews, FAQs and get tips and hints about products like Simply Saline. ARM & HAMMER™ products are available at so many stores nationwide! You can check the product locator to see which stores have our favorite products.
A Cozy Spot
My daughter and I both have a soft and cozy blanket that we wrap up in on cold nights or when feeling blah. Along with a good snuggly blanket, a pile of favorite movies can make sick days a little more pleasant. The sick family member usually gets first dibs on the comfiest spot in the house as well, which means they hog the whole couch!
When sickness strikes your home, what do you do to make yourself or your family members feel better?
