No one enjoys being sick, and often during this time of year, sickness can hit hard. If you or a loved one come down with an illness, or in your efforts to avoid getting sick in the first place, try this homemade, all natural antibiotic salve. Made with potent ingredients like coconut oil, garlic, and thieves essential oil, it boosts the immune system and fights off infection.
“When my kids show the first signs of coming down with something I bring out my arsenal: homemade vicks, essential oils, elderberry syrup, and now my natural antibiotic salve! They get greased head to toe and rarely does the illness progress beyond a runny nose or a dry cough. I’m not saying it’s magic, but I have been called a witch doctor before. I came up with this salve when making up a batch of ear oil. I figured that works so well with ear infections, I bet it would be great on the bottoms of their little feet too! Throw in some Thieves oil for an immune boosting punch and we have a winner here! This stuff really works. You know the best part? It’s NOT a medication and it is NOT contributing to the epidemic of antibiotic resistance that I see in the hospital.
Here is why this stuff really works:
- Coconut oil: the lauric acid in coconut oil can kill bacteria, viruses and fungi
- Olive oil: olive oil intake bolsters the immune system against external attacks from microorganisms, bacteria or viruses
- Garlic: garlic is a potent antibiotic, especially active against fungal infections, with antibacterial and antiviral effects as well”
