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.

Our 9 year old son had a persistent dry and sometime flemmy cough that he came home with from school one day. I got home late that night and heard him coughing himself to sleep.

The next morning I immediately used the Eucalyptus Globulus and applied to his feet, chest and back followed by Thieves and massaged both in well while using a virgin voconut oil to seal them in.

Next I gave him 3 tablespoons of honey we got from our local farmers market with 3 drops of Eucalyptus Globulus in the first spoonful and the next two just the honey. Turns out the honey guy at our market has an assortment of honey and I chose the Eucalyptus Honey.

The next day at school our son said he didn't cough nearly as much. When he got home I noticed he definitely wasn't. Gave him another round of our homemade honey/cough syrup then waited until bedtime to give him another round of syrup combined with the massaging of the feet, chest and back.

Of course he slept soundly through the night with NO coughing at all and the next day he was back to normal--at least as normal as a 9 year old boy could ever be.

We use Young Living Essential Oils everyday but just have been too busy to post all of the positive experiences we have had.
