    In the Medicine Cabinet: GSE

    May 9, 2009 by Brandy Vencel

    So yesterday I posted about my children’s good health and then today I ended up taking Baby O. in because he was having trouble. The irony of this is not lost on me. He had either a virus or a bacteria. I can’t remember now, but I do know that I was given {translation: I bought} a new addition to my medicine cabinet that I have high hopes for:


    NutriBiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract Liquid Concentrate

    This is a concentrate meaning that I will have to water it down. In fact, I was told that Baby only needs one drop. The rest I can save for whenever anyone is showing signs of illness.

    By the way, in case anyone was wondering, I won’t be putting it in a bottle of milk as it would curdle the milk.

    In addition to internal use, I can also use it {again, in diluted form} to clean cutting boards in my kitchen, to wash store-bought foods, or even to sanitize surfaces. I am seriously looking into whether I can use it effectively to wash our eggs {because eggs are not laid nice and clean the way they look at the store…}. Talk about versatile!

    So if you are looking for something natural to add to your bag of tricks, this might be what you’re looking for.

    Emily! Good idea! I used it in duck laundry today and I was glad to know it was cleaner than usual.

    So anyone know what to do when the bitter taste makes your toddler throw it up? I’m just wondering…

    LUYH- Great tip! I have used this for diaper rash, but hadn’t thought to use it in the wash. Brilliant!

    Great post Brandy! 🙂

    Super great for yeast infections in diaper areas, too! And in diaper laundry in case of yeast.
