There really is no difference between giving drops or pilules in home use. It is a personal preference based on, often, the age of the child.
Drops can be easier for a baby.
If you want to give to a sleeping baby, a pet or an unconscious wild animal (ie one of those birds that has flown into the window!) you can just rub on the head, on the gums or on the wrists. Any of the pulse spots will do and the remedy will work.
A 25ml bottle of drops and a 10g bottle of pilules contain a similar number of doses.
- Tip 1 pilule into the lid of the bottle or onto a clean metal teaspoon. Don’t touch with your fingers.
- Crush the pilule to a powder between two clean teaspoons.
- Tip the powder into the mouth.
- Don’t worry if you don’t get it all to go in, as long as you can see the powder is in the mouth.
If giving in pilules isn’t working but that’s all you have …
- You can pop 1 pilule in ¼ glass of water and stir vigorously with a teaspoon to activate the remedy.
- It won’t dissolve and it doesn’t need to. The water is now the remedy.
- You then give 1 teaspoon (or 1/2 teaspoon in babies under 6 months) as your dose and tip the rest away.
