My Personal COVID Story

Despite social distancing, mask-wearing, and lots of handwashing (with really great goat milk soap), I contracted COVID-19 in the Fall of 2020. (And nope, we still don't know where it came from.)

My doctor told me that it was very important to keep my secretions as thin as possible while I was sick. This was best done with drinking lots and lots of fluids. But my doctor also strongly suggested I avoid cough syrups and decongestants because they are designed to dry you out and as a result, they thicken your mucus. My doctor did not want any extra mucus thickening and hanging around in my lungs.

*Please be aware this is NOT medical advice, I am just sharing what I was told for my particular situation.

And so rather than using over-the-counter decongestants and cough suppressants, I instead used humidifiers and our Cold Relief Lotion.

Do Natural Remedies Actually Work?

Our Cold Relief lotion uses eucalyptus essential and menthol to naturally help you decongest. I apply it to my chest, my back, the bottom of my feet (where it can be easily absorbed), under my nose, and on my wrists. (I put it on my wrists so that when I am trying to sleep I can put my wrists to my nose and try to inhale.)

But does it really help?

A 2009 study found that 1,8 cineole (the main component in eucalyptus oil) is an effective and safe treatment for sinusitis. It can help clear airways of mucus and can work as a natural cough suppressant.

My personal bout with COVID-19 resulted in 7 weeks of coughing, but I never needed to go to the hospital and I never had trouble breathing.

How To Use Cold Relief

We recommend applying Cold Relief to the following areas:

  • your chest
  • your back
  • the bottom of your feet (where it is easily absorbed)
  • under your nose
  • around the sinus area (avoid eyes!)

And before bed, we also put some on the inside of our wrists so that we can sniff it while we're trying to fall asleep.

Is Cold Relief Safe for Babies and Children?

I have always used Cold Relief on my babies and grandbabies as long as they don't have any ingredient allergies. I always put it on the bottoms of their feet and their backs and chests.

Just be careful not to get it in their eyes because the menthol will burn and sting their eyes. It's also a good idea to keep it away from their hands so they don't accidentally rub it into their eyes.

Cold Relief Ingredients and Details

Ingredients: Sweet almond oil; Coconut oil; Beeswax; Avocado oil; Cocoa Butter; Mango Butter; Dehydrated goat milk; Eucalyptus essential oil; Menthol.

One Size. Cold Relief comes in a large 2 oz stick.

Cold Relief should feel great all over your body, but to test for any possible allergic reactions, conduct a patch test on a small area. Be sure to keep the product away from your eyes.

Meet Our Goats

We breed Alpine and Nigerian Dwarf registered dairy goats in Scottsburg, Indiana - only half an hour North of Louisville, Kentucky. Our Alpine dairy goats are raised as naturally as possible. We have a 36 acre farm in Southern Indiana, and the goats spend their days in the woods, in their pastures, or in the barn if there's bad weather. We have approximately 200 Alpine baby goats born every year, and have plenty of baby goats for sale February through April and sometimes after that.
