I don’t need to tell you how hard this past winter has been for my family. The constant colds, unrelenting sinus issues, stubborn, phlegmy coughs.
All topped by last week’s asthma flare up, resulting in an early morning visit to the Sydney Children’s Hospital Emergency unit.
And while I think the worse is over now that spring is here (fingers, toes, nose hairs crossed), there is the one issue of hay fever.
Did you know that 15% of Australians suffer from hay fever?? That’s a lot of itchy noses…and worse.
It was about 2 months ago when Nunu started a tireless habit of waking up in the middle of the night.
“My nose! My nose!!” he’d cry.
No matter how much that little boy sniffed to try and get rid of that itch, nothing helped. The only solution that seemed to work was for us to actually give his little button a couple of quick pinches. (Weird I know). But even that only gave him temporary relief.
Completely frustrated and sleep deprived, we went to our GP (I realize I’ve been talking about her a lot lately…”Hi, Annie!”). Sometimes, your family doc is that oracle you need – she always has the answers!
Suggesting that we try paw paw ointment, I remembered the Brauer’s Paw Paw tube I received at the Bloggers’ Brunch. Knowing that it had no petrochemicals and only using natural ingredients, I had a hunch it was going to be different from the other brands.
We rubbed a little under his nose and a smidgen inside his nostrils and voila!
We were so amazed with the results (and the uninterrupted sleep we were getting), Mr Surfer used it for his hay fever prone dry nose too.
So as spring has bestowed its glorious weather upon us, flowers in full bloom…and all that extra pollen set to trigger our hay fever, I have a great Brauer giveaway for you all!
In my awesome Brauer Giveaway, I’m offering 5 readers the Brauer Paw Paw 25 g tube as well as the French Rose Lip Shimmer.
Perfectly timed for spring!
I’m a HUGE fan of the Brauer Lip Shimmer as I like the fact I’m applying a pretty colour to my lips while moisturizing them with only good, natural stuff and not whale blubber or any other nasties.
