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.

When my husband gets a cough it seems to always last awhile because he works extremely long hours and just doesn't have the time to deal with being sick (I'm sure we all know someone like that). He has had a cough for about two weeks. It started out as light sinus pressure and then mucous and then up all night with a cough. We didn't treat it with oils until it was causing him to stay awake at night. Yesterday he went to see a doctor and was prescribed a nasal spray and antibiotic, what else right?

Well, last night I go to see if he wants me to treat him and he says he is alright. About 2 hours into the night he was waking me up (which at this point I was already awake because of this terrible cough) and he asks for some help. I applied with a few drops of olive oil three drops each of Valor, Frankincense, Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemon to his sinus area, neck, throat, chest, back and feet. About 2 minutes after applying he was falling asleep and cough free.

Then about 2 hours later he started coughing again, really lightly in comparative to the first couple of hours of sleep but I applied the same thing and the rest of the night was great. He has finally agreed to be more consistent with oils, so we did it again this morning before work and hopefully he can knock this thing permanently, while living his crazy work schedule.
