With the holiday season steadily creeping up on us (already?!) it’s easy to overlook the fact that it’s also cold and flu season. We all know how getting sick can ruin your holiday plans, especially during the season when we want to gather with friends and family.
Coughing, running nose, congestion, chills, fever, etc. can really get you down; the flu or a cold can have you down for 5-7 days.
I don’t look forward to the possibility of sickness but now I have a new weapon in my medicine cabinet: Maty’s Healthy Products.
I was recently given the opportunity to partner with Maty’s Healthy Products.
They sent me 2 of their all natural products for review.
Maty’s Organic Cough Syrup is more of a food than a medicine. It’s made from 10 different immune boosters, but unlike your traditional cough syrup, it’s not harsh tasting. It’s mild enough for young children (although not for babies under 1 since it uses honey).
I love that because it’s just whole food natural immune boosters, you can take as much of it as needed and not have to worry about drug interactions. Last week, my 8-year-old son had a bit of a cough and he happily took it straight off the spoon. It would taste great in a cup of hot tea as well.
I also tried out the all natural vapor rub. It’s a moisturizing blend of coconut oil and sunflower oil with a touch of essential oils. The scent is mild so I feel comfortable using it on toddlers as well as older kids. The eucalyptus, in particular, opens up the sinuses. And the peppermint is one of my favorite oils for encouraging good respiratory health.
I used the vapor rub this week when we had a few stuffy noses. Good stuff!

About Maty’s Healthy Products
Maty’s Healthy Products was founded by Carolyn Harrington, a mother of 3. Carolyn didn’t start out in the holistic business. Before the birth of her 3rd child, Maty, Carolyn used regular medicine as her guide. Whenever her family needed treatment for anything, ranging from chickenpox to the common cold, Carolyn used their primary doctor.
After Maty was born, Carolyn finally turned to holistic medicine in a desperate attempt to help her sick daughter. Maty was born with multiple health problems, including multiple heart defects that would cause her to undergo three open heart surgeries, two that took place before her 5th birthday.
Carolyn is passionate about life, health and helping others. After being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and suffering through constant back pain, in addition to championing her daughter’s health, Carolyn knew it was time to make a change for herself and her family.
She dedicated her time to researching natural remedies that would assist in strengthening immune systems. Natural remedies quickly became Carolyn’s new passion in life. It was while doing this research that Carolyn started making her own natural products and Maty’s Healthy Products was born.
