Note to self: Read the Labels.

This morning, Darius woke up with a scratchy throat. I gave him some Tylenol and then, being uber-homeopathic and preventative, I gave him some Echinacea. Sadie was still asleep in our room so I didn't turn on the light and got the medicine in the dark.

When I got home from dropping the boys off at school, I realized that instead of Echinacea, I may have inadvertently given him Herbal Colon Cleanse. The bottles look almost identical.

Oops.

Only Darius' colon and time will be able to solve this little mystery for us.

I'm giving him about an hour.

OK! You have only started him on a road to true health. One of my most favorite products. Probably not for a 16 yr. old boy, however.
Love this!

a colon cleanse....hmmm.... that is a horrible thing when you have to use high school bathrooms- especially the boys room.
Are you going to wait to see if he tell you?:)
