Whenever I’m asked what herbs a parent should always keep in the house, there’s one thing that always hits the top of my list: Super Echinacea Extract. This extract, which I’ve been using in my home since shortly before the birth of my son, is from Herb Pharm. Why won’t I go without it? Because it has saved this family from many cold and flu viruses and aided us in fighting allergies and hayfever. It’s successfully boosted our immune systems and stopped illness so quickly and efficiently that it’s the first thing I grab.
Initially, I always bought their Echinacea Root Extract which comes in alcohol free. It’s easy to get my son to take because it’s sweet, so I could just put some in his water and he thought he had a real treat! While the Super Echinacea doesn’t come alcohol free (they offer it in liquid or pill form), I haven’t had any problems sneaking this in my son’s orange juice. It takes so very little for him that I’m not concerned about the alcohol content; no sleepyhead effect.
The owner of Herb Pharm, Herbal Ed, recently sent me an email. I was excited since I’m a Herbal Ed groupie. (I really dig herbs, and Ed knows his stuff. Check the Herbal Ed website to learn more herbally goodness.) Ed has graciously sent along a DOZEN bottles of his Super Echinacea formula for me to give away to you! Each bottle is about a $12 value (and isn’t that so much less than a trip to the doctor and pharmacy???) and I’ll be giving away a bottle of Super Echinacea to several winners in the dkMommy Spot Giveaway coming up the last week of June, so don’t miss out!
