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.

My son started the throat clearing and coughing, some relatives had been quite sick with this the week before. I had just recieved our bottle of Lemongrass, and had read how it was good for respiratory problems. Not wanting him to get the full blown cough they had I got the diffuser in his room and put in five drops of Lemongrass, five drops of Pine and 5 drops of Lavender. They too are listed for respiratory problems.

I put it in his room and closed the door, he came out five minutes later and said it was pretty strong smelling. So I took it back out and let his room air out for a half hour before putting him back to bed. He woke up the next morning with no more signs of a cough or cold. We are going to remember that for the next cold that starts to bother us. It is a strong smell, not unpleasant but it is bold. I don't think I would use it for over 5 to 10 minutes in a 10 x 12 room. Larger rooms could maybe go longer.
