Herbal Popsicles for Fever
You won't often hear me recommend cold or frozen items, but fever is an exception. When a child is fevering, you want to be replenishing electrolytes and supplying them with liquids that contain healing elements. Sometimes, a popsicle is just more appealing than a drink. Here's a recipe created by Aviva Romm, an MD, midwife, and herbalist for herbal popsicles.
Lemon Balm Pineapple Herbal Popsicle
2 cups strong lemon balm tea (one handful herbs to 2 1/2 cups water, steeped for 10 minutes)
1 cup organic pineapple juice
Optional: Add 2 T Echinacea tincture and stir well
Have your child eat 1-4 popsicles daily to get their "dose" of medicine.
Here's a silicone popsicle mold that's easy to use.
