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.

I have used Thieves any time that my grandson has a cough or cold. He's now 9 years old and I have been using Thieves on him since he was about 4 years old. When he was between about 4 and 6 years old, I would dilute the oil before rubbing on the soles of his feet (then put socks on), also his chest and back.

I remember the first time I used it on him and I was truly amazed that he stopped coughing in about 10 minutes! He did not cough again until the next morning.

He has never really like the smell - too strong - so my strategy has always been to apply it after he goes to sleep.

Now that he is older, I use the oil 'neat' on his feet. Usually after he goes to sleep. However, now if he is still coughing in the daytime, I can usually convince he to let me apply it when he is awake!

I seldom get a cough or cold myself, but always reach for my Thieves.
