Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Our granddaughter was born at 28 weeks, weighing 2.3 pounds. She was on two ventilators for quite a while, with frequent lung collapses. The ventilators did massive damage to the lungs, but they were necessary. She was able to go home after 12 weeks in the hospital on oxygen, nebulizer treatments and several meds.

After two months at home, I suggested the parents rub 1 drop of the RC oil blend on her chest every day, which they did. Their supply of O2 ran low, and over the phone, the doctor advised ordering more, because the baby would be on it for at least several more months.

Several days after that phone conversation, they took the baby for a routine lung check, and the same doctor said she could be removed from the oxygen completely, as the lungs were so much better. This was after one month of using RC; there had been no improvement in the lungs in the two months preceding RC.

Many prayers ascended to the throne on her behalf, and we thank God for His power. We also thank Him for the oils which have helped our family innumerable times.

Incidentally, our little Rachel is now a year old, and has had no further lung issues.
