Pure Elderberry Syrup (along with seasonal elderberry syrup blends):
Recommended for children ages 2 and up.
The APP does not recommend that children have honey-based foods until they reach 2 years of age. The glycerin based drops are fine for children to use.
Bronchia Calm Syrup
Recommended for children ages 6 and up
The AAP does not recommend acting against a cough in children ages 2-6. That said, they recommend Honey in warm water with some lemon and said a spoonful of honey has the same result as OTC Cough Medicine to soothe and suppress a cough. You can always talk to your Dr before starting any new herb based product.
As an herbalist, I recommend a few tricks for little ones with a cough. A steam shower with a drop or two of Pine EO on a sponge on the shower floor will thin mucus and allow for productive coughing. A Nose Freida is an excellent little tool to extract mucus from little baby noses! You can find it here.
A Garlic Plaster or an onion plaster is a traditional herbal remedy for chest congestion. You can learn more about these from John Gallagher of Learning Herbs, and Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Ministries.
Alcohol Based Drops
We recommend Pillow Drops for adults only, not for kids. Our other alcohol-based drops including: Propolis, Blossom, Melissa, Oregon Grape, and Cramp Bark are formulated safe for kids please see serving suggestions for kids here.
The Fire Cider is safe for kids. Though they might not enjoy the taste on its own. We recommend mixing it with juice or elderberry syrup when serving to kids.
