My son Cobretti, 9yrs old, started with a cough on a Wednesday. A cold last 7-10 days, so I gave him vitamin C chewables. It will run its course.
Tuesday morning 9am, the nurse sent him home with a temp of 101 and said he should go to the doctor, it is in his chest, he may need an x-ray. I put Peppermint on his chest and back, bottom of feet to get the temp down and he watched tv for the morning. He had lunch and went to bed, I knew it was bad. I knew he needed an antibiotic or something and Oregano came to mind. He was not good at taking pills, so I put 5 drops on the bottom of each foot. I opened my essential oils reference book to colds/flu/lungs/respiratory/infections, researched it all. I put Raven in a diffuser, used Ravensara on his chest and back and continued the Peppermint and Oregano on the bottom of his feet, about every hour, because the temp kept coming back. He also had NingXia Red when he got home and again at lunch.
About 5 pm he came out of his room, I thought he must be doing better. My husband and I stepped out, and I believe he was scared, he started getting sick, coughing up phlegm. The ambulance came and checked him out, said he also needs to go to the hospital and get an x-ray, it is in his chest, sounds like pneumonia or bronchitis. They also seen I was working on him with oils since they were everywhere and you can't help but smell them, and didn't want to interfere with that.
I then looked through my essential oils reference book and found a recipe for pneumonia, 10 drop Rosemary, 8 drops Ravensara, 8 drops Frankincense, 2 drops Oregano, and 2 drops Peppermint, I had all the oils but Rosemary, and start putting that on him. The fever finally broke by 10 pm and he was sound asleep. By the next morning he was up and coughing up phlegm. We continued the oils recipe for the next three days.
Friday he went back to school and I sent him with his oils. He was fine. I must say that the old mentality kept coming at me, that he had to go to the doctor. I also knew they would see him at the clinic, send us to the hospital for x-rays, diagnose and send us home with all kinds of prescriptions. I knew I had everything I needed with Young Living Essential Oils. I trusted, used my intuition and prayed, and he is fine.
