Buyer beware.

A couple of nights ago, after midnight, I discovered that my almost 5 year old child ran a 104.2 degree fever. She was so hot to the touch. I immediately wet a small towel and put it on her head to help cool off her head and try to prevent the brain from frying.

I put Peppermint on her forehead to help the headache that I know she would have if she woke.

She sounded like she had labored breathing and a stuffy nose. I put Thieves neat on her feet and then cupped my hand over her nose and mouth for her to breathe. Her temperature was about 103.

I wrapped her up to try to sweat out the fever. I later put Oregano neat on her feet then diluted the rest on my hand and put it on her chest and along her spine. The used the excess on myself so I don't catch whatever bug she's got. I then cupped my hand over her nose and mouth.
By day break, her fever was around 102. Around 8 in the morning, my parents worried that it could be pneumonia. So I included RC to my rotation. I put it neat on her feet, chest and back and then let her breathe it in.

Around this time, her breathing was clearer and didn't sound labored at all. Whenever she woke, I made sure she took sips of water since she refused to drink.

Every hour I rotated the three oils, and every once in a while I used Peppermint on her forehead. By 10, 11 am her fever fluctuated between 102 and 101. That's when she woke up to watch cartoons. When her fever dropped to 100, I stopped the oils. And by 2 or 3, she was back to normal. In fact, she was up and about and wanting to go outside. I did one more round of Thieves on her just to make sure.

She was completely normal that she could have gone to school the next day. Instead I kept her nome to appease my mom for not taking her to the doctor like she wanted me to. She was just the normal energizer bunny who wouldn't keep still.

No medications. I only rotated 3 oils, let the fever do it's job and the oils to help her body fight off whatever bug she had. I also used the extra oils on me to keep me from catching whatever it was. Today she was in school.
