So... a good bit of June/July was devoted to nursing my family through chickenpox (first and second round). This was great timing with school out, and we wanted the kids to go ahead and get it while young. My four year old had it first, and to her it was really not a big deal at all. With the help of homeopathic and herbal remedies she actually didn't find it itchy (wow). Two weeks later things got a bit more uncomfortable when the seven year old followed by the 41 year old got the pox. I'm so thankful to plant medicines for seeing us through. From fever and itching to preventing scarring and shortening duration of the illness natural remedies made a HUGE difference! ALL BETTER!
