Are you finding winter illness challenging?

Are you concerned about “you know what”?

Do you have children in school or childcare who keep getting sick?

Are you about to travel on a plane at home or overseas?

Have you tried Anas Barb (Oscillococcinum) but need something more robust?



We are now dispensing the 2021 version of Winter and Travel Prep, aligned with the information shared by colleagues about what is currently most indicated in the northern hemisphere and which filters through to the southern hemisphere over the previous autumn and winter.

Winter Prep may be updated annually and this year we are covering the newest issues we face in Australia and in the world generally. This is based on research coming from our colleagues overseas.

Winter Prep was created as an annual support remedy, containing traditional homeopathics which relate to the illnesses seen in the northern hemisphere in the previous winter. We tweak this most years to reflect what is going on out there!

Winter Prep also includes general support remedies which can help with minor symptoms of a cold or similar illness.

Despite being named Winter Prep, it is a useful support remedy year-round for children in childcare or newly at school

For travel, particularly overseas by plane or ship see Travel Prep which we are currently updating and which should be available mid November 2021.

In addition to providing support, the remedy can be used as a remedy to manage symptoms should they arise.

Why Winter Prep?

Colds, flu and other illnesses seem to get worse each winter and with overseas travel this means they are circulating all year round as we have seen. Over the past decade I’ve found Anas Barb 200c, a commonly used traditional remedy, to work particularly well. However, more recently it became evident the remedy wasn’t working for everyone and particularly during travel, which can challenge us with change of environment and stress, as well as unfamiliar bugs!

In 2013, after two very challenging winters in Australia, we took time to research and consult with homeopaths around Australia and in the northern hemisphere and came up with a suitable combination based on this information, combining remedies which have traditionally been used at these times.

Winter Prep contains remedies which have traditionally been indicated for some of the health situations we may experience seasonally and during travel, both at home and away.

After dispensing variations of this remedy widely for the past several winters, and sending people overseas with the combination, we now have good feedback on using the remedy both for support and for management of colds, etc.

Ongoing or recurrent illness such as colds, coughs, flu, tonsillitis, etc should be assessed by a registered homeopath as the underlying weakness needs to be addressed. If remedies do not work or do not work well, this is the time to consider individualised treatment of the whole person for better long term health outcomes.

May be used as a support instead of Anas Barb 200c if prone to colds, flu and respiratory illness.

May be used alongside other similar over-the-counter products as appropriate.

  • Give weekly to children in childcare or just starting school
  • Also give to the rest of the family!

What to do if someone comes down sick:

Support the patient – give 3 times a day for 3 days alongside other indicated homeopathic remedies and supplements.

4 reviews for Winter Prep 2021: All-Year-Round Support!

  1. Nikita

    Winter Prep has kept our family cold/flu free throughout the worst influenza season in a long time. We take it preventatively once every week or fortnight and whenever we feel we may be coming down with something. It clears symptoms such as sore throat and sneezing very quickly. Such a reassurance to have it in the medicine cupboard and will definitely be ordering next year’s remedy too!

  2. Todd Hobson

    We used this product last winter (2017) whilst travelling overseas to Bali and Singapore, with our three children 10,9 and 7. Despite the usual coughing and spluttering from fellow plane passengers and arriving back home to Australia in the midst of one of the worst flu seasons, not one of us developed even a sniffle. We will be using this product again.

  3. Tamla

    I’ve been one of Melanie’s long term customers but only up until recently needed to call on the Winter Prep. I’m so glad I did! With only a small bout of mild croup I consider we have dodged a bullet in what is a very bad flu season in Brisbane. Absolutely recommend to all families.

  4. Kate (verified owner)

    We used this last year as a family of 5, our healthiest year yet with not much more than a cold. Also no conjunctivitis or HFM which has been quite common since having young children. Highly recommend!
