The lungs in our family are not so good. We've all be diagnosed with asthma, possibly cough-variant asthma. We don't wheeze much, but if we get congestion we can't get rid of the resulting coughs for a very long time.

I had a few days during the first cold snap of fall in Michigan in November of 2010 where I would feel the forced cough that occurs when I walk out into dry, frigid air. The doctor says this is from asthma too. So in Nov. '10, I decided to be proactive. I mixed a couple drops of the RC oil blend in a base of V-6 oil. I rubbed the mixture over my throat and lungs morning and night. After several days of this, I didn't cough anymore, no matter what the weather was like.

So when my 24-year old son came to visit, asking what to do about his asthmatic cough that was at its worst at night, I suggested that he try humidifying the air with the RC oil blend. I recommended that before retiring at night he fill a saucepan with water and set it to boil, set it next to the radiator in his bedroom, and add a couple drops of RC

He returned a few days later and shared, with a tone of surprise, that he followed my suggestion, and it stopped his coughing.
