Being sick is never a fun time. Being sick in the warmer months is even more of a bummer! Our family recently has a pretty bad bout with the flu and a round of complementary colds that lasted well beyond their welcome. It is so rough to be an overall strong person, but get knocked right around by an illness. While we are finally feeling well, I know this bug is still making its rounds. That is what inspired me to put together this post on how to Send Your Sick Loved One A Get Well Care Package Today.
If you are anything like me, when I get sick I tend to get the throat and cough symptoms. It all starts with that really bad sore throat that slowly morphs like clockwork into a full blast cold. Then about 4-5 days later it turns into a cough or worse-bronchitis.
For me, a tough cough can drain every ounce of energy out of me quickly! That is why I need products on hand that help to relieve an achy, sore, and congested throat. I am not one to load on on OTCs and prefer more natural treatments. Jakemans throat and chest lozenges are ideal because they are free from harsh chemicals. In fact, their drops contain essential oils like eucalyptus, and favorites like anise, and honey. They are the perfect alternative to many of the candy-like, sugar-loaded options on the market today.
I am so enamored by this brand because they honestly helped to alleviate night-time coughing as I was trying to read in bed. My husband sends his many thanks to Jakemans–haha! I also love the very intense, yet deliciously soothing taste of all three flavors I tried. Since I love them so much, I wanted to share my love for them with some sick family members who we may or may not have shared our germs with?
Jakeman’s is so effective that I decided to make them our feature product in our get well care packages.
You might not realize how thoughtful a get well care package is, but after being recently sick and sent one from Jakemans, I was so appreciative of the contents, and wanted to pay it forward. They sent me some individual samples that I was able to use at the perfect time.
So, I knew I needed to include their marvelous throat drops in my get well soon packages, but what else would you include in a get well gift?
