If new research due to be completed in 2015 shows naturally high fever to be life-saving in critical illness, there will likely be a direct challenge to the present culture of using Paracetamol and other like products to suppress high temperatures.

Initial observations seem to coincide with the voice of many natural health experts, who tell us we can work with the natural process of common illness to strengthen immune responses and allow a child to recover well from sickness and injury.

Good News For Parents

Quality natural products for immediate home healthcare are already in place to help their children develop into strong, healthy adults. With very little experience or preparation, we can drastically reduce our dependence on over-the-counter and prescribed pharmaceuticals, tending to many everyday issues with a minimum of fuss.


We can match pure essential oils with greater or lesser potency to the needs of each given situation. Safe family care simply calls for a basic knowledge of the best essential oils for common childhood issues.
