Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I am lying peacefully in bed listening to the wonderful sound of silence. For the last two nights my toddler Graysen has been plagued with a horrible dry cough, and it has been keeping both him and me up for the majority of the night.

Tonight as I was playing with my essential oils, I decided to try a special combination for Graysen and use it in place of his usual nighttime "sleepy cream".

I read through the Young Living Product Guide and decided that I would just choose three essential oils that seem most relevant for a cough, since that is all that seemed to be bothering my son. I combined the following essential oils:

4 drops Lemon
4 drops Peppermint
4 drops Thieves blend
2 drops Lavender

I mixed these oils with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and applied this mixture to both of Graysen's feet, making sure to get all of his toes. Then I covered his feet with socks and used the remainder of the mixture (which was about 75% of the total that I had made), rubbing it on his back, tummy, chest, and shoulders. Since I still had a significant amount left (I did not realize how far it would go), I just continued to rub his chest, tummy, back, and shoulders over and over until the mixture was gone.

I then put Graysen's shirt back on him, and he laid there on the couch for a while, very relaxed. After a while, maybe a half hour, he got up and began playing again.

My husband was in the kitchen and asked me where I had found the cough medicine for Graysen because he had looked everywhere for it. I told him that I had not found it (because I had thrown it away -- but I did not tell him that) and that I had instead just made up an essential oil blend and applied it to Graysen. My husband was shocked. That was about 6 PM.

Now it is after 11 PM, and I still have not heard a single cough come from Graysen's room! I am one happy momma right now!
