Do you have little kids at home that love popsicles?

This recipe is great for kids who are:

  • teething
  • fever
  • hot summer day
  • and it soothes anxiety

The main ingredient Lemon Balm {melissa officianalis} is safe for kids and is known as the “gladdening herb”.  You may notice after these pops that your kiddos are very happy:)

Lemon Balm Benefits

  • antiviral – known to reduce viral illnesses
  • calms the mind and promotes sleep
  • improves digestion
  • fights the herpes virus
  • soothes kids with ADD and ADHD
  • reduces PMS

Echinacea Benefits

It’s optional to add a tincture of Echinacea.  I would do this in the winter months or for kids age 2-6, as they are most prone to catching viral infections.

Echinacea Benefits:

  • reduce cold & flu symptoms
  • controls blood sugar
  • increases number of white blood cells that fight infection
