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.

My daughther used to get coughs all the time, and they would go right to her chest. It almost seemed like she had the beginning of pneumonia most of the time. I didn't want to treat her with antibiotics, so I started treating her with essential oils, once I learned about them in 2007.

The procedure: I took one drop of R.C, one drop of Peppermint, and a couple drops of V-6 oil (so it's easier to massage), rubbed it in the palm of my hands and applied it on her chest and back. The coughing stopped withing minutes. The symptoms went away within two days.

In addition, the R.C strengthened her immune system in such a way that the time between colds got less and less. I was amazed!! She now rarely gets a cough, and when she does, I immediately apply the R.C/Peppermint, and the symptoms are gone within a day.

I also love giving her NingXia Red to soothe her throat; she loves it! I mix one ounce of NingXia Red with 3 ounces of water and 1 drop of Orange oil.For variety, I mix the ounce of NR with 2 ounces of water and 2 of mango juice, and she loves it as well.
