Sprouts Herbal Cold Remedy Giveaway ~ 3 Winners!

Catching a cold is no fun, especially one with a sore throat attached. And watching the kids suffer? Your anxiety level becomes pretty high and you need it all to be over fast.

Introducing Sprouts Cold Remedy – healing with green is based on the belief that all problems can be solved with nature.

If you’re like me you DREAD the doctor’s office. My kids have to be sick for DAYS (poor things!) before I will even think about heading there. I do everything in my power to stop the illness myself. All with natural remedies.

I’m going to knock on wood and tell you that we have not been sick at all this entire winter. Do you believe it?! Makes me happy! So I haven’t personally tried Sprouts Cold Remedy, but it has awesome Amazon reviews and I will tell you a bit about it.

I’ll first share the natural ingredients since that is always the first thing I look at. You’ll think they are great!

Echinacea – an immune system stimulant, it muscles up the body’s natural defenses, fights  inflammation, and kills bacterial and viral infections. It is good for the immune system and the lymphatic system as well as useful for colds, flu and respiratory infections.

Red root helps supports the lymph system, improves circulation, and has antibacterial and anti-viral properties. It is extremely useful in relieving sore throats.

Green tea is known as a powerful immune booster and antioxidant.

Elderberry  prevents the virus from attacking cells and promotes perspiration and the elimination of toxins through the skin. It is effective against colds and flu viruses and is recommended as treatment for upper respiratory infections.

Thyme helps rid the nasal passage of mucus, inhibits the growth of bacteria, kills germs, breaks up congestion, helps to loosen and expel mucous from the lungs and head and stops the coughing associated with a cold.

Myrrh Gum promotes healing of sores, shrinks inflamed tissue and helps fight bacteria in the mouth.  It has been used to treat colds, coughs, bronchitis and a sore throat.

 

The goal is to start taking Sprouts Cold Remedy at first onset. Keep taking as directed as long as your symptoms are there, but you should start to feel it working within hours and it should definitely shorten the length of your cold altogether.

The anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties help the body resist and kill unwanted foreign substances which prevents the virus from attacking cells. It boosts the immune system and keeps the virus from multiplying. In addition, it helps to loosen and expel phlegm from the lungs; and stimulates circulation and reduces inflammation.

I know it is a real pain to be sick. oh hey I made a joke! :)

For common cold and sore throat remedies try this herbal cold remedy first.

Now WHAT does Venta Airwasher do?

The Venta Airwasher fulfills two purposes: it humidifies dry indoor air while simultaneously purifying it. Dry indoor air is drawn into the unit and passes through the disk stacks which rotate in the water. The air is literally washed. Even the smallest particles are trapped in the water. At the same time, pure water evaporates on the exchanger surfaces, which is widely recognized as the best method of cold evaporation.

What is really cool is that there are NO filters needed. The water is the filter. Very unique!

Dry indoor air is literally washed as it is drawn into the appliance and passed through the disk stacks rotating in water. Impurities in the air, stale tobacco smoke, household dust, pollen and allergens are trapped in the water, and only clean, humidified air evaporates. The Venta Airwasher works on the principle of natural evaporation which is widely recognized as the best method of humidification. No ions, no ozone, no white dust; will not over-humidify.

So yes you have two benefits: Humidification AND Purification.

HOW do I operate it?

I was sent the largest unit – LW45 – that covers up to 800sq ft which is perfect for our open floor plan first floor. I was a little worried about the size (see pic above), thinking it would be too big, but it’s not. And you can choose the color white or black. Plug it in around the clock – it takes very little energy.

Each day or so you fill it with water. Again, there are NO filters to have to change. There is a water treatment additive they want you to add every 2 weeks so I just marked my calendar when I needed to do that. Now, sometimes I forget things. Call it mommy brain. A red light comes on telling me my water is too low and automatically shuts off. This reminds me that it’s thirsty and calls me to action.

Hubby asked one day – Is that thing really on? Yes, it is super quiet!

 

It makes me feel better to have the Airwasher in my home. It is engineered to capture allergens to clean the air and then adds the right level of moisture to benefit. If you have allergies, asthma or chronic nose bleeding, I REALLY think you need one though it is definitely beneficial to everyone on many levels. You’ll be amazed.

Check out the Venta Airwasher – sold in 3 sizes. Buy online at their website or on Amazon.

Why is orange essential oil good for you?

It is great for complexion – dull or oily, plus wrinkles and muscle soreness. The scent is uplifting and induces relaxation and depression. I love adding it to my diffuser – it is the one my boys always choose too!
