Nails and Products: Zarbee's All Natural Children's Cough Syrup

Happy Friday Eve darlings. It's been a month and I've really just been thinking about what I actually want to do with this blog. How I can inform and help others through my small space on this massive world wide web. So you will see a few changes from the run of the mill swatches and reviews that you can catch on the other 50leven nail blogs. I will still have some of those post but most swatches you'll find on my Instagram or Facebook.

Today I want to introduce a new category on the blog "Nails and Products". I love new stuff! I hate when new stuff sucks and I love when new stuff rocks, so periodically I will be sharing products with you all and incorporating nail designs to go with them. The first product is Zarbee's All Natural Children's Cough Syrup. 

Flu season is upon us. Not many know this, but my father is a paraplegic. He was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome after taking a flu shot about 27 years ago. (You can read more about flu vaccines and neurological effects HERE.) I don't say that to scare anyone, because its not very common, but I've never had a flu shot and neither has my son. I'm very picky about the medicines I give my child and that seems to be the trend when I talk with friends who have children as well.

Recently my son developed a cough (we juice, we take vitamins, chia seeds, flax seeds, all of that but life happens) so I began a search for natural cough and cold "medicines" and came across Zarbee's. 

Zarbee's is a blend of dark honeys (and a few other things) and claimed to be 
"all natural, immune boosting, drug and dye free, gluten free."
I've long believed in the benefits of honey and after looking at reviews online I thought I'd give it a try. I can say it works and almost immediately.

Pros: effective, natural ingredients, taste
Cons: cost, smell

I picked Zarbee's All Natural Cough Syrup up at my local CVS and at $8.99 it's a little steep. Luckily CVS ALWAYS has coupons for everything known to man. 
What are some of your natural cold and cough remedies?

  1. My youngest (3 years old) had a cold last month...and I gave him a big tablespoon of local honey every four hours or so. It worked like a charm.
