Homeschooling Health Lesson: Part 1
Thursday mornings are health lessons in our homeschooling schedule. Since all the children had some form of cold, cough, and/or sore throat my 7 year old got out the Natural Remedies book and I had her look up remedies for their ailments. Maashaa Allah, we had great fun making cough syrup with honey and onions, another syrup with honey and garlic, barley water mixed with lemon and honey, and then she and her sister took turns having a mint steam inhalation followed by a mustard foot bath! A real hands-on lesson that empowers the children to make their own medicines and a teaching opportunity that they much seek shifaa (healing) from Allah when they take the natural cures, as only He can bring about a cure. Al hamdul'Illah, it was great fun!
