Your Ultimate Cold + Cough Survival Kit

lifestyle, health

Like all moms, I dread when a cough or cold strikes, especially when it shows up well into the Spring. It’s like as soon as the weather turns nice everyone around us is sick! I personally love keeping my sick kit stocked with various goodies, so when the sickness hits I am overly prepared. I feel like you can never be over prepared as a parent! I love stocking my “bare necessities” kit with a wide variety of holistic approaches paired with products that support a more traditional approach. One of the newest stars in my kit is Robitussin® Honey Maximum Strength Cough + Chest Congestion DM. I know when I get sick I can rely on this along with a few home remedies to help relieve my symptoms. So mamas.. I hope you enjoy these picks as much as I do!


Robitussin Honey Maximum Strength Cough + Chest Congestion DM

Nothing is worse than when you get hit with a cold and end up with a horrible chest cough. This is now my go-to cough treatment, because it has the real relief I need with the natural honey that I love. Every dose has 19.2% real, grade A, True Source Certified Honey, blended with powerful cough medicine that provides fast, lasting relief from cough and chest congestion. It’s also free of gluten and artificial colors!


Lemon + Hot Water

Sounds fairly simple but it works! This remedy has always been a “go to” for my family. Lemon is stacked with vitamin C which helps protect the body from deficiencies. For kiddos, it’s a great way to soothe the common cold.

Aura Clearing Mist

I am a firm believer in the power of energy. Energy is something that you cannot see but you can definitely feel. I love keeping the space my family lives in clear, light and filled with positive vibes. So, when a cold sneaks in, I use this practice to clean the energy that surrounds us.


It’s often so hard to read anything when you are busy all-day chasing kids around. When you are sick, reading something helps relieve your mind and gives your mental state a break. I personally love catching up on home magazines when I am sick.

Succulent + Flowers:

Having plants in your house is a great way to instantly help you feel better! They help with reducing carbon dioxide, create a calm vibe, and helps with air quality. I love placing succulents in my daughter’s room, especially when I think she is getting sick.

Aromatherapy Candle:

I am a big fan of aromatherapy candles when my household is sick. They can instantly help boost your mood, calm your nervous system and help you take those much-needed deep breaths.
