Keeping our family of seven up and running can be challenging on some days, to say the least. Luckily we have a few tricks up our sleeve, like our collection of favorite homemade remedies to keep everyone up and running during the flu season.
Of course, every now and then things get to the point where we have to call in for reinforcements. Thankfully, our local CVS always steps up to the plate.
Quick Tip: CVS Pay
We’re always on the lookout for time saving tips—especially this time of year. When our neighborhood pharmacy introduced us to CVS Pay, we decided to jump on board.
First of all we adore our local pharmacy. We’ve been dealing with the same people for years and they always make our trips easy and convenient. The new app just takes it to a new level. This is one errand bust we’re giving a double thumbs up!
The process makes it easy to manage multiple prescriptions, as well as any other items you may need. They’ll have everything ready to go when you get to the store. With Extracare savings already looped into the app, a single scan will get you checked out and on your way.
And now for the feel-good remedies…
Flu-Fighter Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
Homemade chicken noodle soup is a crowd favorite in our house, and this hearty recipe from Baker by Nature fits the bill perfectly.
Throat-Soothing Chamomile Ginger Popsicles
Getting to take a day off from school or work may be the biggest upside to a sick day, but popsicles come in close second. This throat-soothing chamomile ginger popsicle recipe with lemon and honey from Port and Fin will work wonders on scratchy throats (and the ginger will boost your immunity to kick a cold to the curb).
Honey Lemon Ginger Jar
This immunity boosting honey lemon ginger jar recipe from My Fussy Eater will definitely earn a top spot in the fridge on those days when you need an extra boost. TIP: Local honey contains pollen from your area and consuming a little each day will help those who suffer from hay fever.
Homemade Lemon Ginger Clove Cough Drops
When fighting a stubborn cough, try this lemon ginger clove cough drop recipe from Hello Glow.. By using some of the same ingredients used for both the popsicles and honey ginger jar, the drops are a “feel good” recipe that are sure to work with ingredients you can trust.
Homemade Vapor Rub Shower Cubes
This DIY vapor rub shower melts recipe from The Homespun Hydrangea is sure to ease the sniffles. Pop one of these in the shower or bath for a soothing steam to clear the nose before bedtime.
