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 3.5 year old daughter had a high fever today along with an almost non-stop cough. She was coughing a lot yesterday too. Usually I give her a spoonful or two of honey for this dry persistent cough & it usually stops it in its tracks. Today it didn't. I don't usually give OTC medications but I wanted to stop the cough so we tried some homeopathic children's cough syrup - that helped a little but not much.

I had been putting a mixture of Thieves and Peppermint w/ grapeseed oil on her to keep her fever down (works so quickly!) as well as RC for congestion. I had just read in the D.R. about Cypress for a persistent cough.. so at bedtime I added Cypress to our concoction & rubbed on her feet, back, chest, & forehead & within a few minutes her coughing stopped.

Now she is sleeping soundly and breathing easily, with no fever and no coughing! Thanks to God and Young Living for these safe oils that work so well and so quickly to keep our loved ones healthy!
