A day at the zoo…

A friend of mine recently invited us for an adventure at the zoo. It’s been quite some time since I’ve been there- apparently, they have passes and kids under 2 get in free… Did you hear me? I said FREE. That junk can cost up to $15/head. I’m in! Two of my neighbors invited me to go the same day so it was a party indeed- 4 mamas + 4 toddlers. They have a kiddie pool and this picture just about sums it up…

There's always one...

There’s always one…

Anyhoo, the next day, Joram woke up with a 99.8* fever. I put a drop of On Guard on him and then a few hours later, diluted Oregano in a rollerball down his back and feet.  He was not in the mood to eat or drink that day so by mid-afternoon, he spiked to 101.3 and added the snots to the list. Jonathan put Peppermint on him to take down the fever and followed it with a drop Frankincense. That seemed to really help.

We applied again that night and voíla! Joram is a very happy, fever free toddler today! So let me add up the general costs of this episode:(PS. I like to overestimate rather than underestimate, therefore these are TOP numbers)

1 drop On Guard blend=$0.13 x 2 applications = $0.26
1 drop Oregano in rollerball=$0.08 (this was diluted, so cost was less)
1 drop of Frankincense= $0.28 x 4 = $1.12
1 drop of Peppermint =$0.07 x 4 =$0.28

TOTAL for the zoo with a bonus of a fever=$1.74


In all seriousness, I know that the cost of a co-pay has increased to $30-$40/per visit (It’s been so long since we’ve went to the dr though, so I’m not quite sure what our actual copay was last time) + a prescription (usually not more than $15 for something of this nature) OR we could just get an over-the-counter medication (like infant-children’s Tylenol, etc) all ranging between $6-$12 + tax, extra work for that little liver of his and an expiration date to pay attention to.

Needless to say, I’m a happy camper. All these essential oils are readily available at home for us to use whenever the need arises. I’m thankful that the LoRd has given us ways our bodies can heal naturally!
