When I found out I’d be given the opportunity to let my children try out Soothie Suckers Herbal Ice Pops I was excited. I had already checked into all the herbal ingredients inside of their ice pops and knew this was a product I felt comfortable giving to my children.
From Soothie Suckers:
Happy, healthy children need natural support to help keep them smiling and at their best. In fact, that’s exactly what led Marietta Harrison to create Soothie Suckers. She went in search of natural and gentle ways to promote the health of her five children, and in doing so she discovered a world of herbs that parents have turned to for thousands of years.
Tapping into that ancient wisdom, Marietta developed Soothie Suckers as a safe and fun way to keep k ids immune systems strong–and as a way to empower parents to make natural and healthy choices for their children.
Soothie Suckers provides great tasting, pre-measured herbal remedies formatted for children. These proprietary herbal formulas are packaged in ice pop pouches and come in two natural flavors (grape and orange) for daily or seasonal consumption. These first formulas help support the immune system and the upper respiratory system. Expiration date stamped on each pop to insure highest quality.
Proprietary herbal blends
Certified organic or wild-crafted herbal extracts
No artificial flavors, No high fructose corn syrup and No alcohol
Formulated in conjunction with the President of the American Herbalists Guild
One hundred percent plant-based, our Immune Support & Nasal Support blend makes use of herbs that for generations have provided parents with safe and gentle ways to help kids stay happy and healthy. Your kids will love the sweet orange & grape tastes, and you’ll love that there are no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup and not a single drop of alcohol.
We received our Soothie Suckers Herbal Ice Pops super fast. I loved the packaging and especially loved the size. It’s the perfect amount and size for the little ones of all ages. Right away I put a few of the Immune Support and a few of the Nasal Support in the freezer.
I thought I was going to only be able to try out the Soothie Suckers Immune Support since all of us seemed to be in good health. Being a mom with 7 children and the school year well underway I should have known our first fall colds were headed right for us! With the toddler just starting preschool you know I wasn’t thinking clearly!
The evening we received our Soothie Suckers my little toddler came down with a lot of congestion. She wasn’t a happy camper. Being a mom and a pediatric nurse I am a firm believer in letting our bodies take care of things. I don’t give over the counter medication unless it’s to bring down a high fever. I believe that each response our body makes to a virus is the best way to combat it.
What I also feel helps our immune system is natural remedies and herbal remedies. They don’t mask or inhibit our antibodies from doing their jobs. In fact they assist mother nature.
I proceeded to rub my daughter’s chest and back and under her nose with Echinacea and Eucalyptus. It helped a little and she really loves having her body rubbed down and the cuddling she gets afterwards.
As I was holding her I remembered we had just gotten the Soothie Suckers. I wasn’t sure if she was in the mood for them. I figured it was worth a shot, my 8-year-old son was starting to show symptoms as well so I thought he could eat it if she didn’t want to try it.
When she saw the ice pop she immediately perked up and ate it. She gobbled it all and really loved it. Her nasal congestion cleared and allowed her to breathe nicely so she could sleep. Toddlers can be so picky especially when they aren’t feeling up to par but she took to these herbal ice pops and really enjoyed them.
I gave one to my son. He said the flavor was really good and it helped him to breathe better out of his nose. He had a great night sleep just like my littlest.
For the next couple of days I gave my sick little ones the Immune Support and the Nasal Support. I found they gave the kids relief without blocking their bodies natural ability to do the job at the same time. They were able to get over their colds without feeling awful the whole time. I didn’t have to argue with them because they didn’t like the taste or thought it smelled funny. They loved them and it was a fun way to help them to feel better.
We are using the Immune support as a prophylactic and so far so good. One of my older sons was going to be going on a trip to a neighbor Island before Thanksgiving. I was worried with the other kids in the house being sick and all the sick kiddos at school that he might catch something. He used them and has been able to stay virus free.
Soothie Suckers doesn’t claim to prevent or cure all colds. What I love is that they are giving our bodies the support they need. Let’s face it our kids get sick and so do we, but what’s great is there are things out there like these herbal ice pops to help us to stay as healthy as we can. If our kids or even us adults get sick the Soothie Suckers help to curb the symptoms from being so bad.
I plan to always have these in my freezer now! With Soothie Suckers and some good old TLC in the house, our little ones will have a much better cold season this year 🙂
I’m really happy to have found this new natural and herbal remedy to add to our bag of tricks this year. It’s the perfect thing to help boost our kiddos immune system and great to have on hand to help their bodies combat viruses and soothe the yucky upper respiratory systems.
