A friend of mine called saying her children (ages 3.5 and 5) were miserable with a croupy cough, and asked if I could suggest some oils to help. I mixed the following together for her:

8 drops ravensara
3 drops melaleuca alternifolia
3 drops lavender
2 drops lemon
48 drops V-6 mixing oil

I suggested she rub a couple of drops on her kids' chests, backs and soles of feet. She called back later that day to report that within 15 minutes of putting the oils on, both children stopped coughing!

Thank God for these wonderful oils!
