Today I’m bringing you an interesting resource in home medicating.
If you’re new to self-treatment and aren’t sure where to begin, Jenni and her book, “Mom Essentials: Doctoring” can help. Here’s a little bit about her:
Jenni has a Master Herbalist degree, has had 12 years experience using herbs, 7 years using essential oils and countless experiences with her 7 children using various healing modalities. She has home educated her children off and on for 14 years, and has done extensive research and training for herself on the subject. She has been preparing healthy, whole foods and creating recipes her family loves for 13 years.
Her book is all about how to doctor your family at home. She goes through several personal anecdotes and experiences, and follows up with tips and recipes on how to treat all types of illnesses and conditions. Jenni addresses topics like:
- Healing sore muscles
- Soda substitute, “Sassy water”
- Essential oil use
- Avoiding miscarriage
- Fighting urinary tract infections
- Eliminating constipation
- Managing RSV and pertussis
- Endometriosis, PCOS, and other fertility issues
- Strep throat help
- Helping eczema
- Kid calm-all tea
- Teething pain solutions
- Twisted ankle relief
- …and lots more!
(I’ve only included maybe a third of the full table of contents here, honestly, there is really a lot more!)
Jenni includes her favorite essential oils, herbs, and other formulas — with recipes and directions — among her advice. There are a lot of bits of wisdom to be found on treating a wide variety of injuries and illnesses.
Here’s more about it from her site:

If I had one criticism of this book, it would be that it is not that well organized. The stories aren’t separated into distinct chapters (just sub-headings) and sometimes the alignment of the pictures isn’t quite right. This can make it hard to find exactly what you are looking for, but doesn’t detract from the usefulness of the information.
