My husband and I recently traveled to Boston, where we took participated in a whale-watching cruise. The boat was enormous, and it took a good hour for all the passengers to embark. The entire time, the boat engine was left idling, and the wind blew the fumes from the back of the boat to the front.

It was impossible to get away from the thick toxic fumes. After breathing them for 20-30 minutes until the boat finished loading, I felt nauseated.

Then, on our return flight home a few days later, our plane's takeoff was delayed on the runway. In the process of waiting for takeoff, the pilot backed into the jet fumes then braked. And there we sat, breathing jet fumes in a closed cabin for the next 10 to 15 minutes.

I had most of my oils with me on the trip, and during our visit we had been applying Longevity and the various anti-infectious oils to our feet. We also took them internally by capsules. Nevertheless, our lungs suffered, and by the time we returned home we both had a cough we could not shake, coupled with a general lethargy. It acted like bronchitis, but it wasn't.

Each night during the lung meridian's "awake" time, we would awaken, coughing uncontrollably. Peppermint, RC, Raven, and Longevity did not touch it. Finally, my Mom suggested that I use my last few drops of Juvacleanse on our feet. About 2 applications was all it took to end our cough and ease our lethargy! After that we gained energy steadily until we were able to get back to our regular schedules.
