Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My son has been suffering from asthmatic cough with sinusitis since 2 years old. I disregarded it as just runny nose and croup cough.

However, over the months, then years, doctors kept increasing his puffs then more antihistamines and then more steroid puffs and montelukust sodium. His cough became intense at times, continuous, dry cough that he doesn't have time to breathe.

I've been trying a lot of alternative medicine and supplements that are very expensive, and none of them are able to totally dry up his runny nose and stop his cough totally. For years, his cough and runny nose will just subside, but it will never go away completely.

By the time he became 5 years old, my friend introduced to me Young Living essential oils. I was skeptical at first, as we all should, but driven by desperation since the drugs were affecting his growth and focus on learning. I decided to invest on all the oil blends for asthma and cough and to give it maximum 3 months to work. The products I bought were RC, Raven, Lavender, Eucalyptus Radiata, Thieves and a diffuser.

I applied RC (sinus area and chest), Lavender (chest), Eucalyptus Radiata (chest) and Thieves (on soles of feet) 3-4 times a day and diffused Raven and Lavender at night when he sleeps. After a month of this protocol and diffusing, his runny nose dried up for the first time since years ago, and he stopped coughing completely.

I'm glad I had an open mind when my friend introduced me to high quality essential oils, as it greatly helped my kids health. Before this, I took my son to the doctor almost every 2 weeks. Now, I can't barely remember when our last doctor visit was!
