Yes, it is to drink.
The amount will depend on what your son weighs, his age and how quickly his system metabolizes. Start with a small amount. You can always increase it if you need to. I can't tell you how much as I am not a doctor. I am a grown woman and I started with a teaspoonful.

If you don't want to use vodka you might try making a sweet tea of the herbs after you have steeped it a while. You can also put the vodka and herb concoction in hot tea on the stove. The heat will burn off the alcohol.

I agree, Judy! It's ever harder to treat in kids, though. There aren't any medications on the market for children. So, we do Advil and sleep. It helps. I am going to look for these herbs. Thanks for posting!
